Chicken & Tofu Wontons with Chilli Garlic Sauce 1

Its always so much fun when you choose to step out of the regular and decide to do something different. Packing lunch for the family is an everyday routine, and usually its a repetition of a couple of favorites. So imagine how lovely you’d feel when you get to your lunch box, expecting one of the regulars but you get something completely unexpected. This was one such meal. I have to tell you the wontons are good, really good, but what really works its magic is this sichuan dipping sauce. Its got that lovely kick from fresh tongue numbing peppercorns, some heat from the chill, saltiness form the soy, the zing from the vinegar and freshness from the herbs. Drizzle generously over the tofu and chicken wontons and enjoy. If you’re cooking yourself everyday, the task can get quite daunting, and the tough part is not making the food, its thinking what to make. I’m always struggling with that part, and if like me if you run out of ideas, which I always do … you could also look here  for some great inspirations.
