How to make it
- In a large bowl, mix together crab, cream cheese, water chestnuts, onions, garlic cloves, soy sauce, flour, and garlic powder, white pepper and XO sauce (optional).
- Mix water and cornstarch into a separate small bowl. This will be used as a paste to stick the wonton wrappers together when folding
- Place about 1.5 tbsp of the crab cheese mixture in the middle of a single wonton wrapper
- Dip your finger in the corn starch/water mixture and moisten all edges of the wonton wrapper
- Fold two opposite corners of the wonton wrapper up and pinch. Then fold each other corner into the middle. Make sure there is no air inside the wonton. Pinch all edges together. Use more water mix if needed to glue the wontons together.
- Heat vegetable oil on medium-high or to 400˚
- Fry wontons until a light brown. They should take between 2 and 5 minutes to cook. If there is air inside the wonton, it will float. Just hold the wonton down with a fork to let it cook.
- Dry the wontons on a paper towel.
- Leftovers can be placed in the freezer. Make sure to place the wontons on a tray, if you place them in a ziplock bag they will stick together and you'll have to pry them apart. When you cook them you can just place them frozen into the oil, it will just take a tad bit longer to cook.
