Mozzarella and mango chutney wonton parcels

If you fancy a little light cooking, these wonton wrapper parcels are so worth the effort – hot crispy parcels of tangy cheese. Delicious.

Wonton Wrapper Parcels (serves 4)

How to cook a feta parcel

12 – 16 wonton wrappers (I’m guestimating 3 or 4 per person)
1 large ball of mozzarella cheese
3 – 4 tbsp mango chutney
1 lime
1 egg
Vegetable oil

  • Crack the egg in a bowl and whisk
  • Lay a wonton wrapper on a flat surface and use a circular cookie cutter (or a glass) to cut into a disk
  • Dab about 1/2 tsp of mango chutney in the middle of the disk
  • Top with a 1cm-ish cube of mozzarella
  • Grate over a few fronds of lime zest
  • Use your finger or a pastry brush to dab egg around the circumference of the disk.
  • Fold the disk in half to make a ravioli, and press down the edges pushing out the air and sealing the parcel shut
  • Repeat until you’ve made all the parcels
  • Heat 2 tbsp of vegetable oil in a frying pan and cook the parcels for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on each side until crisp and golden.
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve

    Recent development:
    The wontons can be brushed with vegetable oil, then baked in a 400 oven for about ten minutes, rather than fried.
    They can also be fried in advance, then reheated in a warm oven.
    They freeze best uncooked, and can be baked from frozen in about 15 minutes.
