Sichuan Red Oil Wonton/Vegetarian Wonton in Chilly Oil

Sichuan style of foods calls for spiciness, my today's post goes for an incredible dish which calls for wontons. I have been posting fantastic dishes under a super interesting theme for this week's blogging marathon, yes my theme for this week is Chinese foods you can make at home. After some deep fried Chinese bread sticks and a lipsmacking popular Kung Pao stir fry with tofu, am here today with an another interesting dish. Yes my today's dish calls for wontons, these chinese dumplings are very much known around the world, especially the wonton soup and fried wontons. The wonton soups in Sichuan cuisine is very much different from the Shanghai version or Cantonese version. If you get a chance to visit small street food stalls in Sichuan region of China, you will definitely find this super spicy Red oil wontons and Red oil dumplings.

Szechuan Red Oil Wonton Soup

Sichuan cuisine is also popular for their red chilli oil, black vinegar,soya sauce and sesame seeds. Coming to red chilli oil, though this oil can be prepared easily at home, i picked mine from the Chinese store as am living in Chinatown. I prepared wontons by myself at home though the wonton wrappers are from store as well. However this Red oil wontons are prepared easily with a simple dressing, but i couldnt resist to add some mixed cooked vegetables as i want to have a super filling dinner in a healthy way. Though this recipe calls for a bit long preparing process, trust me this dish will definitely please your tastebuds and keep you warm while the weather is down outside.
