Pan-fried Beancurd Skin Rolls


I'm always lurking from blog to blog looking for some inspiration , okay , some food to drool over ! lol

As if borrowing several cook books and back issue foodie magazines from our local libraries are not enough .

So when I saw Lena's mouth watering prawn rolls and thought maybe I could make some dim sum using bean curd skin , too .

I have this easy and simple recipe that I clipped from one of the free Chinese dailies  .

And there's this ongoing yummy dimsumania event that I've been eyeing since early this month and I'm glad that I've a dish so I can join in the fun ! ! ^-^'


Recipe from The Headline Daily

1 sheet beancurd skin
120 grams , chicken fillet
3 pieces dried shiitake mushrooms , soaked until soft
80 grams carrot
40 grams yellow Chinese chives
2 tsps egg white

Seasoning :
1/4 tsp sugar
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp caltrop starch , you can use cornstarch/tapioca flour /arrowroot flour
1 tablespoon water
few drops of sesame oil
pinch of ground white pepper
I added 1 tsp chili sauce

Marinade for chicken :
1/4 tsp salt
 1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp caltrop starch
pinch of ground white pepper

* Wipe the beancurd skin on both sides with a clean towel ; trim off hard edges and cut into 8 pieces .
* Rinse chicken fillet , sliced thinly and add marinade and mix well ; set aside for 30 minutes .
* Cut mushrooms and carrots into thin slices ; cut chives into shirt lengths .
* Heat some oil in a wok and stir fry the mushrooms and carrots until fragrant . Put in the chicken and stir fry until done . Add seasoning and mix thoroughly ; put in the chives and mix well . Dish up ( I added a handful of chopped cilantro ) and leave to cool .
* Lay flat a piece of beancurd skin and place some filling on top , fold into a rectangular parcel ; seal with egg whites . Repeat with the remaining  ingredients .Shallow fry over low heat until golden brown .
* Serve hot .

  2. Between the beancurd skin and the yellow chinese chives, I am sitting here thinking that my diet is missing out on a lot of good things that I have never even seen. I'll bet your pantry has at least 20 things that I could pull out that is totally new to me.
    These do look delicious. I have everything for the seasoning but clearly just that would not satisfy, sigh. Enjoy the weekend Anne!

  9. Bean curd skin is something new for me but it sounds gluten free. Your rolls look quite satisfying.
