  • 25 sheets Wonton wrappers
  • 1/2 cup Tofu
  • 1/2 cup Cabbage shredded
  • 1/4 cup Green pepper / capsicum thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp Salt or as required
  • 1 tsp Cooking Oil
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Chopped


  • Any form of tofu can be used for this recipe. I went with the larger chunk of tofu, which was available for me in the gorcery store.
  • Shred cabbage, tofu, garlic and chop capsicum finely.
  • Heat pan and add a teaspoon of cooking oil. Then add chopped garlic and saute till it leaves out aroma in the air. Then add finely chopped capsicum and continue to saute for another 2-3 mins.
  • Saute them in medium flame.
  • Once capsicum starts shrinking from its original shape, add shredded cabbage and continue to saute till they are half cooked. Then add shredded tofu and saute for another 2 minutes. Switch off the flame and add salt and keep it aside.
  • Now it is time to prepare the wontons. Place a wonton sheet in a plate. Brush it with water on all the four sides.
  • Scoop a spoonful of tofu mixture and place carefully in the center of the wonton sheet.
  • Fold them as half, and do not fill too much of the mixture as they can not bring out proper pattern.
  • Then gently bring both the corners together, one above the other. And leave the two exterior corners.
  • 10. Repeat the same process for all the remaining wonton sheets.
  • 11. If you are not comfortable with making this pattern, then choose any pattern of your choice.
  • 12. Bring water to boil in the steamer, and arrange stuffed wontons gently over it. And steam it for 8-10 min in medium flame.
  • Once cooked switch off the flame and allow the steam to escape by keeping them aside. Once it cooled down slightly, gently remove and serve super tasty wontons along with soy sauce, I like to add a hint of wasabi sauce to the soy sauce.
