For baking/ kueh making: I highly encourage to weigh ingredients with a digital kitchen scale instead of using measuring cups as they are not very accurate especially when it comes to recipe that requires precision.GRAMS TO CUPS CONVERSION (UNSIFTED)
- Your favorite salsa
- Preheat a large nonstick skillet. Add cooking oil and swirl around to coat the bottom of the skillet. Add garlic and saute for about 10 seconds. Crumble in the ground turkey, cook for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle in cumin and paprika powder (if using). Add chunks of cheese and cook until the cheese is melted. Remove from the heat and let it cool down a little bit before wrapping
- Preheat oven to 375 F. Line baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray with some cooking spray. Prepare a small cup of water. Place 10 wonton wrappers on your working surface. Scoop about 2 tsp of the filling onto the center of the wrapper. Brush the four edges of the wrapper with some water. Fold diagonally into half to form a triangle. Press the edges to seal. Place on the baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the wontons are golden brown and crispy. Repeat with the rest
If cooking in air fryer:
- Spray wontons with cooking spray and then place in air fryer in one layer, and cook at 375F for 5 minutes or until crispy or golden brown. You may need to do this in small batches to get good result
- Serve with salsa on the sides.
