    3. Mix the paste with the pork, prawns, chestnuts, tapioca, sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce and salt.
    4. Place a spoonful of the mixture into the middle of each wonton skin creating a little round pocket by pressing the wonton skin against the filling.
    5. Steam the wontons for approximately 10 minutes or until the filling is cooked through.
    6. Dipping Sauce: In a small bowl combine all the dipping sauce ingredients then mix well.
    7. To Serve: Serve the wontons sprinkled with the garlic oil and a side of the dipping sauce.
