- Add wontons to broth and simmer for 2 minutes, then add choy sum and cook for 2–3 minutes or until wontons are cooked through and choy sum is just tender.
- Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken dumplings and choy sum into serving bowls. Ladle broth into bowls and serve topped with bean sprouts, coriander leaves and remaining chopped chilli and julienned shallot.
