Notes

  • Sichuan(Szechuan) chilli oil is used in most Sichuan style cuisine and it is flavourful, and has a bit of buzzy numbing sensation.
  • You can buy chilli oil bottles in most Chinese/Oriental grocery stores or supermarket Asian aisles. 
  • If you want to use homemade chilli oil, you can check my instructions how to make easy chilli oil at home. ( Link : )
  • Can you freeze wontons?
    Yes, you can freeze the extra wontons. Place the wontons in tray, make sure they are not sticking to each other. Once they are completely frozen, pack them in an airtight containers or bags. 
    You don't need to defrost the wontons. You can boil, steam or fry the wontons straight away.
