Curried Beef Wontons

Curried Beef Wontons
1/2 pound cooked and shredded beef (I use a slow-cooked roast)
1 teaspoon dry sherry
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sweet curry powder
2 teaspoons sesame seed oil
2 green onions, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 to 2/3 package of wonton skins
Peanut oil for frying

Mix and marinate for 1/2 hour.  Place one tablespoon of mixture into the center of a wonton skin, moisten the edges of the skin with water or egg white, fold into a triangle and then bring two of the points together and moisten to attach.  Deep fry in hot peanut oil over medium-high heat.  Drain, and enjoy with Sweet and Sour Sauce.
