What is Wonton Chips?
Wonton chips are made by deep-frying wheat flour-based wonton wrappers in hot oil. The wrappers are cut into triangles and cooked until golden, puffy and crunchy. The texture is delicate and the flavor is salty with a hint of nuttiness from the wheat flour. These are used as a snack and garnish.
...Wonton wrappers are used to make wonton dumplings. The wrapper is almost paper thin, cream colored and made from wheat flour dough. The wrappers usually come pre-made in small squares or sometimes circles and are wrapped around a small amount of wonton filling, such as meat, seafood or vegetables. The wrapper tastes bland and salty.
...Vegetable oil is obtained by extracting oil from seeds. Types of vegetable oil include canola, sunflower, corn, and safflower. Light and with a neutral taste, vegetable oils are used to fry foods, or can be used to lightly coat meats and vegetables before roasting. Vegetable oils are also used as ingredients in salad dressings and sauces.
...Salt is a mineral composed mostly of sodium chloride. It is the main flavoring used in food and is naturally occurring in certain foods, such as cheese, beets, meat and celery, plus many others. Salt is white and has finer granules than sugar. Many commercial salts include iodide, while others exclude it. Most salts are white, while some are naturally pale pink with minerals. Salt brings out the flavor of something and can create a tangy mouthfeel, if used in excess.
