Good and tasty. They came in the shape of wontons as USA wonton wrappers are small. I dont like mushrooms, so I substituted it with mix of broccoli stems (no florets), green zucchini and yellow squash which are close to in taste with mushrooms. For red chili powder, I substituted 1/2 tsp red chili sauce for the perfect Chinese/Thai taste.
