Dim Sum Style Chee Chong Fun!!!
recipe from Imperial Kitchen Forum http://lovefood.14.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=656
Ingredients : 150g Rice Flour 1 ½ Tbsp Wheat starch flour 2 Tbsp Corn flour 1 Tbsp Oil 2 cups Water ½ tsp Salt
Method : 1. Sift the 3 types of flours together. 2. Slowly add the water, mixing as you add. 3. Add the oil and salt and mix thoroughly. Set batter aside for at least an hour. 4. Prepare your steamer. Grease a swiss roll pan or any aluminium tray with oil and pour the batter directly on the pan and steam for 5 mins. 5. After steaming, using a plastic scrapper roll the ccf up. If you are using ingredients like char siew or prawns, you can sprinkle it over the steamed ccf and then proceed to roll it up. 6. Place in a plate brushed with a little oil. Continue with the rest of the batter.
Sauce: Ingredients 1 tbsp oil 2 tbsp sugar a few slices of ginger ½ cup water 4 tbsp mushroom flavoured soy sauce or normal light soy sauce ½ to 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1. Place ginger with oil and sugar in a pot. Cook over small fire until sugar turns brown. 2. When sugar is brown, add in the rest of the ingredients. Cook over medium fire for about 5 mins. Taste the sauce and adjust taste accordingly. If you find the sauce too sweet, you can add in a bit of salt.
Modifications: I added sliced chinese shitake mushrooms in the sauce too. (To prep: Soak in hot water with 1 tsp of sugar for 20 mins). For filling, we added crabsticks, the mushrooms, spring onions.
Comments: HEAVEN!!!! It's really the thin and soft type ccf...very yummy!!! Quite time consuming though....Qin and I took nearly 1 hour 15 mins to make 6 rolls....eat and make, eat and make...so by the end of it, we were both very full cos the meal took so long!!! hahaa...
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
