These paper- thin sheets of pastry can be used as wrappers for wontons, dim sums or spring roll. For dim sims, cut pastry to same size as written for wontons. For spring rolls, cut pastry into 20 cm[ 8inches ] squares.
2 cups of plain flour
3/4 cup water
Sift flour and salt into bowl. Add beaten egg and enough of the water to mix to a stiff dough.
If the dough is soft, add a little extra sifted flour for easier handling.
Roll dough out on a well - floured board until paper -thin.
With a sharp knife, trim edges to form 38cm x 38 cm [ 15 inches X 15 inches ] square. Trim edges. Using a ruler cut into 8cm [ 3inches ] squares. Place squares on a tray, cover with a damp cloth until ready to use. [ This measurment is for dim sum and wonton ]
If stacking wonton wrappers for later use dust each wrapper lightly with flour before stacking.
