Pan Fried Crispy Prawn Rolls 香煎虾肉腐皮卷





This is what we usually order from Dim Sum restaurant. But my version is pan fried because I don't deep fry food with oil. Verdict? ...taste as good as deep fried one!






Ingredients: 



1 part of Fish Paste (I used homemade fish paste, click here for Easy Fish Paste recipe)

1 - 2 part of Minced Prawn (more prawn taste better!)

Bean Curd Skin



Seasoning:

Garlic Salt

White Pepper

Sugar

Shao Xing Wine

Sesame Oil

Soy Sauce



1 stalk Spring Onion (finely chopped)

2. Use a pair of chopsticks, stir in one direction until the mixture turn gooey. Add in spring onion and mix well.





3. Cover with cling wrap and keep in the fridge at least 1 hour.

4. Prepare the bean curd skin. Refer Easy Homemade Ngoh Hiang recipe  for details.

5. Spread some meat fillings on the bottom edge of the bean curd skin. 



6. Roll up and transfer to a plate. Repeat for the rest. 




Can be keep in the freezer for later use. 


How to pan fry Crispy Prawn Rolls:

1. Heat about 1 tbsp oil in a non stick pan. Add in prawn rolls (room temperature).




2. Pan fry the prawn rolls with medium heat for about 1-2 minutes both sides or until golden brown and crisp. 









Tips: When the prawn roll is 'harden' means it's cooked!

Plain Sweet Loaf - The bread that stay soft for days 甜面包






Lately, I'm experimenting the widely used method in my bread - Flour Gelatinised Method which adapted to Alex Goh, a famous Malaysian baker. 

The trick to convert normal bread recipe to flour gelatinised method is to take out 1/4 portion of the original bread flour recipe, then add 70% boiling water to this 1/4 portion.



This was the first loaf I made, small one.

Day 2, still very soft, as good as day 1.

Day 3, still soft. No need to steam/ toast/ warm the bread on day 3.
Love this!!


I had baked 2 loaves of bread using this method before I share this recipe. The first one was a small loaf and the second one was bigger. Both turned out very soft and super fragrant! and they stay as soft for at least 3 days. Even on day 3, I don't need to steam/ toast/ warm the bread. I can't tell if they'll  still stay soft on day 4 because my bread normally finished on day 3. Otherwise, it'll be kept in the fridge or turn them into Crouton!


Never ask a 6yo which one he likes, his answer is always the crunchy one!

Garlicious Buttery Crouton. One of my son's favourite snack!
Once he started one, he can't stop munching lol..
