How to cook Pancit Molo

Pancit Molo Recipe is an adaptation of wonton soup, is a specialty of the town of Molo in Iloilo a well-known district in the province. Unlike other pancit, pancit molo is not dry but soupy and it does not make use of long, thin noodles but instead wonton wrappers made from rice flour.

Leftover wonton wrappers can also be cut into strips and drop into the hot broth.
