pork dumplings in chilli broth

So, I've been stuck at home.. DAY 4 with this flu that has infested half of the population of Melbourne and I've been passing the time by flicking through endless pictures of broths and soups on pinterest to make myself feel better.

I have made these before and they always make happy. Brownie points to freezing some from the last batch I made (YAY!) all I had to make was the chilli broth which is so simple.

I have changed the recipe a few times to match what I have on hand but I think this one is a winner!

3. Place a tsp on the pork mixture in the centre of the wonton wrapper. Lightly wet the sides of the wrapper and fold the bottom over the mixture to form a triangle. Seal all the sides. Take the bottom ends of the triangle at the base and bring them together, then overlap. Seal again with water to secure. repeat with the remaining wontons.
