Finally its time to reveal this month's International Food Challenge's recipes! As mention in my earlier post the event was introduced by Saraswathy Tharagaram of Saras Yummy Bites and Shobana of Kitchen Secret And Snippets . The chosen theme for this month is Chinese Cuisine ~ Cantonese Region Recipes.
I have chosen two from a number of recipe choices given.Recipes being Cantonese Wonton Noodle Soup followed by Chinese Scallion Pancake.
Chinese Scallion Pancake
Divide dough into 5 or 6 pieces of equal size. Roll the pieces into balls.
Place a ball of dough on a well-floured work surface and roll out into a thin circle (about 1/16th inch thickness).Spread a teaspoon of oil evenly over the pancake (use more if needed). Sprinkle salt evenly over the pancake.Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of scallions over the pancake.
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until oil is shimmering. Cook pancakes, flipping once, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side (add oil as necessary). Drain on paper towels. Season with salt. Cut into wedges, and serve with dipping sauce.
Mix all the dipping ingredients and serve with the pancake.
Preparation time: 20 min
blender/mixie to have a homogenous mixture.
