I would like to think of Mante as a Main Course, but seriously we can’t have enough of it, so we really think of it as an appetizer or a side dish. I love making the dough from scratch, but also learned that making it with this easy hack, is less time consuming, and almost delivers the same result.


  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 250 grams veal meat
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 TBSP parsley finely chopped
  • Salt/Pepper to taste
  • 30 grams melted salted butter
  • 1 TBSP Sumac for garnish
  • 1 TBSP Additional parsley for garnish


  • 150 grams yogurt
  • 1/4 TSP Smoked Paprika
  • 1 garlic clove crushed


  • Mix meat, onion, parsley, salt, and pepper.
  • Shape mixture into 1/4 TSP size balls.
  • Once you’re done shopping cut each wonton wrappers in half, place the Ball in the middle and wet sides to close each wrapper like a boat.
  • Rub an oven proof dish with butter then line up all mantis.
  • Once all are assembled in the dish – top with melted butter and bake until golden.
  • Meanwhile prepare yogurt mixture by mixing the yogurt, paprika, and garlic.
  • Serve hot and top with yogurt mixture and garnish with sumac and parsley.
