Fried Wanton with Pork

Fried wanton filled with pork

Kiaow Tod Muu

Serves 2 Cooks in 20 minutes Difficulty Quite Easy

Fried Wanton with Pork is one of the tastiest Thai snacks you will ever make. I have been wanting to feature Kiaow Tod Muu, as you would say in Thai, for a long time now. They are so crunchy and delicious! You will be so happy eating these if you try my recipe.

They are also quite easy to make, you will just need to source the wanton sheets and then get the hang of folding them. Once mastered Kiaow Tod will become one of your favourites. They make a great appetiser or accompaniment to almost anything.

I have made mine with pork, Muu but you could use chicken, fish or shrimp. For a vegetarian version tofu would be great too, just don’t blitz the tofu in the blender. Chopped in small chunks would be fine.

Get ready for one of the greatest Thai snacks ever, happy cooking everyone 🙂


  • 150g minced pork
  • 20 wanton sheets
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 2 coriander roots
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper corns
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 egg white
  • Oil
  • Sweet chilli dipping sauce
Preparing wanton filled with pork
Filled and folded, wanton ready to be fried.


Wanton frying in oil
Frying the wanton
  1. Smash the garlic, pepper and coriander with a pestle and mortar.
  2. Transfer the smashed garlic, pepper and coriander to a mixing bowl and stir in the sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil. Finally add the pork and stir well.
  3. Add this mixture to a blender and blend to a paste.
  4. Roll the pork mixture into small balls approximately one and a half centimetres in diameter.
  5. Lay a wanton sheet on a clean surface and place a pork ball in the middle. Brush the wanton edges with a little egg white and fold the wanton wrapper from one corner to the opposite corner to form a filled triangle. Flatten the pork area a little by hand and make sure the edges are sealed, pressing the edges together and using more egg white if required.
  6. Heat a good layer of oil in a wok or deep sided pan suitable for frying. When the oil is nice and hot, carefully lay in the wanton. They should cook hot and fast, turning once until nice and crispy. Be careful not to overcook. Remove from the oil and lay on some kitchen towel to remove any excess oil.

To Serve

Arrange the wanton on a plate with a bowl of sweet chilli dipping sauce.
