·        Spoon about 1 tsp of  the vegetable filling onto the center of each wonton wrapper.
·        Use your finger or a pastry brush to lightly moisten the edges of the wonton wrappers with water.
·        Fold one corner of the wrapper over the filling onto the opposite corner to form a triangle.
·        Press the edges together to seal. Moisten the two long ends of the triangle, fold them together, and press them firmly to seal.

Preparing soup:

·        In boiling water, cook noodles with salt and oil according to packing instruction.
·        Drain and set aside till use.

·        Bring the Vegetable broth to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
·        Gently stir in reserved veggies to it.
·        Add chilli sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, salt to the soup mixture and cook for 2 ~ 3 minutes.
·        Drop the wontons, one by one, into the broth, and let them cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until they float to the surface.
·        Reduce heat to a simmer, add sesame oil, and cooked noodles to the soup.
·        Meanwhile, mix corn flour in water and mix to the soup, bring this to boil again as thicker you want.
·        Adjust Salt and spice to taste .
·        Garnish with minced spring onion while serving.

   I used only 6 wontons to my soup, remaining filling, I freeze it for later use.  Increase the water or broth to your required soup consistency. Both wontons as well as corn flour works ad thickening agent.
