Indonesian Wontons (Pangsit Goreng)

Pangsit Goreng or Indonesian Wontons are one of my favorite Indonesian appetizers.  There are so many variations of this appetizer for some are made with chicken, shrimp, pork or beef.  The recipe that I am sharing with you is a version of a recipe that has been in my family for years and is a combination of both pork and beef.  I was taught to dip them in a sweet and sour sauce with sambal oeleck but I prefer to dip them in Thai sweet chili sauce.  Be sure to serve these crunchy and savory little Indonesian Wontons at your next get together or dinner party.  Enjoy!  Tessa

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 bunch of green onions (finely chopped)
  • 6 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup celery leaves (finely chopped)
  • 4 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 1/2 Tbls. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp. white pepper
  • 6 dozen wonton wrappers
  • water
  • canola oil for frying

Let’s begin.  Grab a medium sized mixing bowl and mix together the first 10 ingredients until well incorporated.  Using a small scoop (1/2- 3/4 ounce) put filling in wonton wrappers.  Fold and seal into what ever shape that you like.  The easiest shape is the simple triangle.  Put your filling in the middle of the wonton wrapper, slightly moisten the edges with water, fold once and seal.  (See below for example) Fry in canola oil until golden and drain well.   Serve with a hot sweet and sour sauce or sweet chili sauce.  Makes about 6 dozen.  Recipe can be cut in half or even doubled.
