Another type of dumpling that originated in China and is now loved all over the world is the wonton."Bing wei zhi tun," which translates to wontons, a form of bread, which was mentioned by Yang Xiong from the Western Han Dynasty. The distinction is that wontons are consumed after being steamed or cooked and contain fillings. Wontons were viewed by the ancient Chinese as sealed buns lacking the "qi qiao" (or "seven orifices") It was given the name "hun dun," which is Arabic for "turbidity" or "chaos." Wonton and dumplings had no distinction at the time. Dumplings had not changed for hundreds of years, but wontons gained popularity and developed a unique style in southern China. People started separating the names of dumplings (jiaozi) and wontons starting in the Tang period.

These mouthwatering morsels will fill your mouth with a flavour explosion that is unmatched by any other food. While the majority of wonton recipes call for deep-frying the wontons, this soup dish calls for boiling the wontons in water. This gives the recipe a sense of wholesomeness as well as makes it healthful. We have basically shown how to prepare the soup in this recipe. You can use any filling you choose for your wontons; vegetarian or non-vegetarian options both taste fine in this soup, but we used a vegetarian filling. Since the soup is assembled and flavours are added in serving bowls rather than the cooking pot, it is different from the soup we often make. This preserves the flavours for a longer period of time and guarantees their freshness.
