How To Cook Easy Sweet-Style Fried Dumplings:
1 In a large bowl, combine ground pork, shrimp, onions, carrots, singkamas, DEL MONTE Crushed Pineapple, DEL MONTE Original Style Tomato Sauce, DEL MONTE Quick N Easy Sweet and Sour Mix, kinchay, and soy sauce. Mix well.
2 Season with salt and pepper. Add the egg and mix until ingredients are well combined.
3 Brush the edges of the wonton wrapper with water. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of filling onto the middle of the wonton wrapper. Fold in half and seal by folding and pinching the edges. Repeat the process for the remaining ingredients.
4 Deep-fry the dumplings in oil. Once they are golden brown, remove them from the pot. Strain the dumplings to remove the excess oil. Set aside.
5 To make the sauce, simmer water in a saucepan and add DEL MONTE Quick N Easy Sweet and Sour Mix. Stir well. Add the syrup from the DEL MONTE Crushed Pineapple. Stir all of the ingredients and let the mixture cook until it thickens. Let it cool.
