  • Bring a pot of water to boil , once it boils, drop the wanton . When the wanton floats upwards, drain and set aside. To prevent the wanton from sticking to each other, you may want to put the wanton in a bowl of cooked water.

  • Use the same pot of water to blanch the noodles until soft. The timing will very much depends on the type of wanton noodles. However, for every package of wanton noodles, be it dried or fresh wanton noodles, it usually comes with a set of cooking instruction. Follow the timing in the package for best result. In general, 2-3 minutes is a guideline. Drain the wanton noodles and transfer directly to the serving bowl.

  • To make the broth, boil the chicken broth with the dried flounder powder (optional). If the package broth is not enough, you can add in more water and adjust the flavouring by adding some salt and chicken stock powder. Traditionally, this broth is from the boiling of chicken and pork bones and dried flounder.

  • For serving, in the bowl with the noodles, put some cooked wanton and additional chicken broth until the broth at least cover the noodles. Topped with some white pepper and chopped spring onion if desired.
