Curry Chicken Wontons

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

What I like about curry chicken wontons is the surprise at the end. The trini tongue is accustomed to expecting some sort of shrimp or egg filling yet, lo and behold, you get some chutney music and tassa on your taste buds instead. It’s great to give the taste buds a little jolt from time to time so you don’t get bored with food. Food is all about survival and to survive you have to be creative.

How About Some Curry Chicken Wontons?

Who would have thought of adding some curry chicken to wontons? Well, I dared to go beyond the norms of trini cooking and tried this and it was great. The crunch of the fried wonton skins just gave way to a spicy curry chicken filling that had you wanting for a few more of these treasured morsels.

It’s like this…The first one you just can’t believe it. Someone actually fused two cooking styles and came up with something original like this? You just have to taste another. The second one is just to make sure you are really tasting curry chicken. The third one….Well, by the time you reach the third curry chicken wonton you’re wondering whether to try it with either some soy sauce or chutney lol!! You cannot make up your mind.

So, to stop the confusion you have two more…One with soy sauce and the other with some mango chutney.  By then you conclude that you have to have two more with your favourite sauce of choice to end the debate that’s going on in your head. Hahaha!! But, I am the devil’s advocate this evening. What would you do if you had choose between some pepper sauce, plum sauce, hoisin sauce, tambran sauce, and chadon beni chutney? …Hmmm this curry chicken wontons recipe really has some promise to it. :)
