Deep - Fried Wontons With Date Filling
(Tsao - Ni - Hun - Tun)
What You Need:
  • One recipe wonton wrappers, or 1 pound ready-made egg-roll wrappers, cut into quarters

  • 4 eight-ounce packages pitted dates
  • 2 cups finely chopped walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons grated fresh orange rind
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons orange juice or cold water (if needed)
  • 3 cups peanut oil or flavorless vegetable oil
  • Confectioners' sugar

  • How To Cook:
    1. With a cleaver or sharp knife, chop the pitted dates fine, adding a teaspoon or so of orange juice or water if they are too sticky to cut. Combine the dates, walnuts and grated rind in a small bowl.

    2. Knead the mixture with your fingers until it can be gathered into a ball. If the mixture is dry, moisten it with orange juice or water. Roll a tablespoon of filling between the palms of your hands to form cylinders 1 inch long and about 1/3 inch in diameter.

    1. Place a cylinder of filling diagonally across each wrapper, just below the center. With a finger dipped in water, moisten the lower point of the wrapper.

    2. Fold the point over the filling and tuck it underneath. Roll up the resulting tube until all the dough surrounds the filling. Stick a finger into each end of the tube and give it a twist to seal the ends.

    TO COOK:
    1. Pour the oil into a 12-inch wok or deep-fryer and heat the oil until a haze forms above it or it reaches 375░F on a deep-frying thermometer.

    2. Deep-fry the wontons, 8 or 10 at a time, turning them occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crisp. As they are finished cooking, transfer them to paper towels to drain and cool.

    3. Just before serving, sprinkle the wontons with confectioners' sugar.

    To Make: about 4 dozen
