Step by Step Methods

  • 1

    For the filling, finely chop the dried mixed fruit and put it in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the honey, mix thoroughly until the fruit is coated.

  • 2

    Spread out the wonton wrappers on a chopping board or work surface. Top each wrapper with a teaspoon of the dried fruit and honey mixture.

  • 3

    Moisten the edges of each wonton wrapper with a little water, then fold up to enclose the filling. Pinch the edges together at the top to seal.

  • 4

    Fill the large deep pan with oil until one third full. Heat the oil until a cube of white bread dropped in takes 30 seconds to brown. Add 4 wontons. Deep fry for 1-11/2 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Keep warm. Fry remaining wontons in the same way. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm.

Tips & variations

  • If preferred replace the dried mixed fruit with your own combination of dried fruit, such as dried apricots, prunes and sultanas.

  • These fruity wontons make an excellent finale to any oriental meal. For the main course serve a mushroom and prawn stir-fry with steamed rice noodles.

  • Wonton wrappers are sold in the oriental food section of most supermarkets. If you can't find any, use ready-made filo pastry and cut into 10cm/4in square before using.
