Bored of the same old food, day in and day out. Then why not make Chinese food! First off, its easy, its healthy, and most importantly its yummy!
I made Chinese meal last weekend. I made spring rolls, chicken satay (which is more Thai actually), fried rice (Fauzia taught me how to make this), Chicken Manchurian (or whatever that was, but very very good, my dear Sis-in-laws recipe).
Spring Roll sheets (thawed as per the instructions on the package)
Cabbage and Carrots (shredded), I used Cole Slaw mix – great idea huh?
Scallions also called Spring Onions in India – chopped
Salt, pepper, a bit of soy sauce
oil for cooking
In a little oil, fry the onions for a minute, then add the Cole slaw mix to it. Cook covered till the cabbage is tender crisp. Add the salt, pepper and a dash of soy sauce.
Cool the filling. Then using one sheet at a time, put about a table spoon of the filling towards one corner. Wrap the end, once. Then lift and fold in the two opposite ends on either side of this corner (to seal off the ends, so the filling wont fall out). Then tightly roll away. Dip the end of the roll in water, to make it sticky enough to seal off the roll.
( You can prepare these a day in advance, and refrigerate them in an air-tight container or even freeze them)
Shallow fry till golden brown.
Serve hot with tomato ketchup.
