  • 1 egg, beaten

  • salt, to taste

  • pepper, to taste

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • oil, enough for frying

Combine all ingredients in large stainless steel bowl. Toss well just before filling wonton so they don't get soggy.

Braise in large saute pan, being sure not to wilt vegetables. Remove from heat.

Place enough filling on wonton wrapper to properly roll without
stuffing too full, including chicken or shrimp, if desired. Place
wrapper roll on another wonton and roll up again. Seal with whipped

Place in 350 degree oil and brown on all sides. Remove from pan.

Put on plate with a paper towel to soak up oil. Slice with a very sharp knife, or else roll will tear.

Dip in peanut sauce (see recipe on On the Menu site).
