Debone chicken wings. Use a small knife to gently scrape the meat away from the bones. Pull bones out and discard. Rinse wings under running water, drain and set aside.
Combine ingredients for filling in a mixing bowl and mix well. Stuff wings with filling, packing in as much as possible. Secure filling by threading toothpicks through the flaps of skin covering the opening.
Steam chicken wings over high heat for 10–15 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, heat oil for deep-frying over medium heat. Oil must be very hot. Deep-fry chicken wings until golden brown. Remove from heat and drain well.
Serve immediately, with tomato ketchup or a sauce of your choice.
