Pan-Fried Dumplings


2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon hot Chinese-style mustard
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 (14-ounce) can chow mein vegetables, rinsed and drained very well
24 square wonton wrappers
1/2 cup canola oil
Toasted white sesame seeds
Black sesame seeds
For dipping: soy sauce, sweet and sour sauce, and hot Chinese-style mustard


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Blend first 4 ingredients in a food processor. Add vegetables. Using on/off turns, pulse until vegetables are just minced. Drain excess liquid from vegetable mixture. Arrange 12 wonton wrappers on work surface. Lightly brush edges of wrappers with water. Spoon 1 tablespoon vegetable mixture into center of each wrapper. Top with remaining wonton wrappers, pressing to enclose filling completely. Using raviolicutter or sharp knife, cut edges of wontons. Heat canola oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, fry dumplings until just golden, about 1 minute per side. Bake until dumplings are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer dumplings to serving tray. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Serve with dipping sauce.
