another fun way to make won ton(pian-sit), which both tastes and looks wonderfully


For the filling:

  • 100g, pork mince
  • 2 tbsp dried shallot flakes
  • Salt and white pepper powder

For calla-shaped won ton

  • 20 pieces of (square) won ton pastry
  • 20 sticks of asparagus, washed and trimmed

For dipping sauce (optional)

  • 2-3 thin slices of ginger, shredded
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1-2 tbsp soy sauce


  • STEP 1
    Mix the filling: put pork mince and dried shallot flakes in a bowl and mix them well and then season the filling with salt and white pepper powder.
  • STEP 2
    Make the calla: (the most difficult part of the dish)
  • STEP 3
    a. Take one piece of square won ton pastry; spread the filling flat on the pastry
  • STEP 4
    b. Fold the pastry in a triangle shape; place the tip of the triangle upright and place the head of the asparagus spear in the centre of the triangle won ton.
  • STEP 5
    c. Fold the left side to the right and then fold the right side to the left, wrapping around the asparagus stalk; fix the peaks on the back side (if needed, use some water to glue the pastry)
  • STEP 6
    Mix the dipping sauce: simply put ingredients all together and mix well.
  • STEP 7
    Put the calla won ton in a pot of boiling water and with medium heat cook for around 3 minutes or less. (don’t over cook them, the pastry softens very quickly)
  • STEP 8
    Place the won ton (pian sit, in Taiwanese) on a plate and serve with dipping sauce
