Some say Chinese cuisine is 400,000 years old going back to the Peking Man and his use of fire. Some other accounts of the history of Chinese cuisine takes the beginning to the Chinese stone age. However today Chinese cuisine enjoys the distinction of being the most popular in the world.
All this furore about Chinese food can make one wonder what is so special about this cuisine.  To put it in one word it is wholesome.  It has the characteristics of being nutritious, economical, balanced and delicious. It cannot be gainsaid that Chinese food is popular the world over and it can be adapted into our modern lifestyles as the strong link between diet and health of body, mind and spirit is epitomized in Chinese cookery. We all desire harmony in our lives and this works on the ancient Taoist principle of Yin and Yang in which balance and contrast are the key. Each Chinese dish reflects a balance of taste, texture, aroma and colour. Be it sweet, sour, pungent, hot, salty or spicy – all the six basic flavours are incorporated deftly in all Chinese dishes.

Ingredients for Dragon Seafood Rolls Recipe

  • Refined flour (maida) Pancakes 1/2 cup

  • Cornflour/ corn starch 1/4 cup

  • Salt a pinch

  • Eggs 2

  • Oil to cook

  • Filling

  • Crabmeat roughly chopped 1 cup

  • Shrimps peeled, deveined and chopped 8-12

  • Fish fillet chopped 100 grams

  • Oil 1 tablespoon + for deep-frying

  • Garlic cloves finely chopped 2

  • Ginger finely chopped 1/2 inch piece

  • Green chilli seeded and finely chopped 1

  • Red chilli paste 1/2 teaspoon

  • Spring onion chopped 1

  • Salt to taste

  • Soy sauce 1/2 tablespoon

  • Vinegar 1 tablespoon

  • Egg whisked 1

Method

Step 1

Whisk refined flour, cornflour, salt and eggs together with enough water in a bowl to make a smooth batter. Strain into another bowl and rest for half an hour.

Step 2

To make the filling, heat one tablespoon oil in a non-stick pan, add garlic, ginger and green chilli and saute for half a minute. Add red chilli paste and spring onion and sauté for a minute. Add crabmeat, shrimps and fish.

Step 3

Add salt, soy sauce and vinegar and mix well. Cook till the mixture dries up and starts sizzling. Remove, cool and blend coarsely.

Step 4

Heat a non-stick pan and brush a little oil on it. Mix the batter well and pour a ladle full into the pan, rotate the pan to coat it entirely and pour back the excess batter. Cook on medium to low heat, till it starts leaving the sides of the pan.

Step 5

Remove the pancake carefully and cool. Repeat to make twelve pancakes.

Step 6

Divide the filling into twelve equal portions. Place a portion of the filling at lower end of each pancake and roll, folding the sides while rolling. Brush the edges with egg and seal tightly. Repeat with all the pancakes and keep the rolls ready.

Step 7

Heat sufficient oil in a wok and deep-fry the rolls in moderately hot oil, turning them frequently, until crisp and golden. Drain on absorbent paper.

Step 8

Arrange them on a serving plate and serve hot with a dipping sauce of your choice.
