key01-yaaBean Curd Rolls Dimsum



Its cooking time again,
I have made some Bean curd Rolls dim sum,
Bean curd was made from boiling big pot soy milk,
when the soy milk heat up,
the very top layer will become a thin sheet,
they are dried in cool area for a couple hours before it gets strong enough to wrap things
which we don't need to do these complicate steps at home,
you can get the bean curd sheets in most Chinese grocery store (freezer section)
Bean curd is very healthy, contains lots of protein, calcium and iron
and the raw product is not fried
I have some pictures that go steps by steps for the following recipe,
have fun and enjoy cooking ^^


Bean curd sheets 30 small piece (cut each big sheet into quarters)
Grounded Pork or Chicken 1/2 lb
Cellophane noodles 1
Ginger 3 slices, chopped
Green Onion 1, chopped
Egg 1
Soy sauce 1 Tsp
White pepper 1 pinch
Sesame oil 1tsp
Pam spray oil
Sauce (1tsp sugar + 2Tsp soy sauce + 1/2 cup cold water + 1tsp corn starch)

1-Soak the cellophane noodles in water for 15min, cut into 2cm pieces with scissors
2-Mix grounded meat, ginger, onion, egg, soy sauce, pepper and sesame oil in a large bowl
3-Stack the bean curd sheets together and wet them with cold water, so its soften up and easier to wrap
4-Take about 1Tsp of filling, make a long shape horizontally, place it in the middle of the bean curd sheet
5-Fold 2 sides to the middle, and roll it to the end
6-Spray oil on a frying pan, pan fry the rolls with medium heat, put the open side down, so it get sealed, about 1min for each side, this step doesn't cook through the meat
7-Move all the rolls into a pot, add the sauce, cook in medium heat for 5-8 min
