Creating a blog was out of the question for a long time for me, as measuring everything in the kitchen was like biting into an eggshell. I enjoy cooking and don’t want to waste even a slightest bit of enjoyment in that small world of mine. But little did I know that everything will change, when my husband came home with the Oscar nominated film ‘Julie and Julia’( a real life story) where Julie Powell (part played by Amy Adams) challenged herself to make all the 524 recipes from Julia Child's cook book ‘Mastering the Art of French Cooking’ and blogging all her experiences (The Julie/Julia Project). It was an inspiring movie. A few days later when we were discussing this casually with a friend of ours over tea…everything changed dramatically…..” How about you making at least half of it in one year? Not French but your own. 262 recipes that will inspire others and present it as a blog?” For a minute my mind traveled faster than light… With an experience as a helper in my mother in laws kitchen for 6 years followed by a three year everyday struggle to satisfy the palate of my foodie husband, if I cannot do it then why should I cook? But on the other side with an experience in English literature extending no more than expanding outline stories in English grammar class when I was 18 and two small kids that come in handy at times, will a commitment for the next one year work? Anyway my ‘cook's ego’ didn’t allow me to say no...

So my friends …here I am opening my recipe book, trying to perfect and present 262 recipes in the coming 365 days….A Challenge that will of course tastes good. Come.. Have a walk with me along my journey.. Cheering and inspiring….Forgiving and tolerating…Testing and tasting….for ‘A Tasty Challenge’

Fried Chocolate Wontons-A ‘no recipe’ recipe!!!

Recipe No: 128
This is a dessert, which is both quick and easy but still needs no recipe!! You can customize it however you want, but definitely, I would love to give some ideas…serve it with a light dusting of powdered sugar or Cinnamon sugar (sugar with a bit of Cinnamon) or serve it warm with Vanilla Ice-cream or for Chocoholics, coat it again with melted white or dark Chocolate and sprinkle some chopped toasted nuts…

I am an absolute fan of the Chocolate – Hazelnut spread…Nutella, which had been one of my favorite ‘pregnancy treats’... believe it or not, as if they are keeping their Mother’s legacy both of my kids are crazy about this stuff…they even fight on who is cleaning the almost finished jar!!! Well I have to say that my kids  are usually a bit picky on Desserts and as they love Nutella, I made this specially for them….
Ingredients
  • Wonton Wrappers……..As per needed
  • Nutella……………………..As per needed
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
Method of Preparation
  1. Take a Wonton wrapper and place ¼ teaspoon of Nutella in the middle.
  2. Wet the edges of the wrappers with some water, fold one side over the Nutella to cover it.
  3. Stick the ends nicely by pressing, taking care to remove any air bubbles that may be trapped inside.
  4. Repeat this with the rest of the wrappers.
  5. Heat at least 2 inches of Oil in a frying pan on high heat and deep fry the prepared Wontons till golden brown in color.
  6. Drain the excess Oil on a paper towel and serve it the way you want (options stated in the introduction).
Notes:
  • Don’t over stuff the Wontons with more Nutella as it will become overly sweet.
  • Pressing the air bubbles out and sealing the edges properly are very important; failure to do these will result in spilling of Nutella into the Oil.
  • Working with Wontons is tricky, as it dries out pretty fast. So take only one by one out of its cover or make sure to cover the extra ones with a damp cloth if it is out of its cover.
  • Wonton wrappers are available in the frozen section of most of the grocery stores and in the stores that sells Asian groceries.
 



Make it, enjoy the deliciousness and 
serve it to your family with love...
