Recipe: Dry Wonton Noodles
Wonton noodles probably need no introduction, and for many people, this is an everyday dish. And I am no different, breakfast for me every day I am in Singapore, is this world-famous dish, created all over South East Asia. However, I believe the one that Singapore Hawkers create, is the best in the world.
Whenever I am travelling I fill up whatever freezer space I have with wontons. I will make up a batch of these and freeze for whenever I get home late and hunger descends. I also keep leftover Char Siew Pork in the freezer for such an occasion. This recipe is easy if you have these two ingredients pre-made and in the freezer.
