These chicken and prawn wontons are addictively delicious, you can't just have one!  Pretty easy to make, you're sure to make these many time over.

Last month I went with my sister to Kuala Lumpur and got the chance to attend a cooking class that featured Malaysian food. Oh boy, it was such an amazing experience and today I still cannot forget the flavors of the food we made. Everything we prepared were mouthwateringly good! Just one look at the photos above and below should confirm that!! I will definitely go back when I get the chance as 3 short days of enjoying Malaysian dishes were definitely not enough. I need another food trip to Kuala Lumpur and I am hoping it would be sooner than later!

First, I apologize that some of measurements here are in grams! I guess it’s because the rest of the world uses metric but not so much in the USA and I haven’t had the chance to convert. Sorry. However, since I no longer want to wait to share this recipe to you all and because if I don’t post this online chances are I might lose the copy and to prevent that I must post this now, conversion ready or not. I hope you understand. Don’t worry a little google search on the equivalent of grams to cups shouldn’t be that hard. 🙂  Anyway, hope you try this and enjoy these delicious wontons!! Promise they are worth searching google for the conversion as they are absolutely, perfectly yummy!

Ok, I felt a bit guilty and did a little google search and added the equivalent in US ounces. Don’t be shocked if the meat measurement seems too small by US standards. It really wasn’t much when I made them. I felt like they weren’t much at all but remember there are other ingredients too and these amazingly makes about 12 wontons at least. Anyway, it’s pretty easy to double the recipe and adjust accordingly. Enjoy!!
