The wonton will remain slightly open. Add enough oil for frying into a pot to cover the bottom 4 inches of the pot. Heat the oil to 350 degrees.

These can also be done in an air fryer. Spray the rolls with cooking spray and the inside of the fryer and cook at 390 degrees for 3 - 4 minutes. Be sure to not crowd your air fryer.
