Wanton Soup

29 May

One of the most crucial complementary dish to the Dry Wanton Noodle is of course, the Wanton Soup. Basically, this has got to be the most easiest soup ever! Just follow the wanton recipe from the Fried Wantons entry. And the rest, just follow the recipe below πŸ˜‰


  • 1/3 cup dried anchovies (ikan bilis)
  • 2 inch ginger, cut into thin strips
  • 3 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1.2 litres water
  • 10 – 12 stalks spring onions (white tips only), chopped finely
  • 2 teaspoons chicken stock granules
  • Salt & MSG, to taste


Prepare the stock first by heating up the sesame seed oil and vegetable oil in a medium saucepan. Add the ginger, garlic and dried anchovies and saute them until fragrant and golden brown. Add the water and bring it to a boil. Remove the impurities that surfaces until the stock is clear. Simmer on low heat for a few minutes. Pour the stock through a sieve into another pan.

Add the chopped white tips of the spring onions into the stock, add the chicken stock granules, salt and MSG to taste and set aside.

Heat up another big saucepan with water. As soon as it boils, drop the wantons into the water. Stir gently so the wantons don’t stick together. Continue to boil until the wantons are cooked and float to the surface.

Transfer the wantons out and divide them into equal servings. Pour a ladleful of stock over each serving, top with chopped spring onions and fried shallots and serve immediately.
