Chinese onion cakes
These delicious pure vegetarian cakes are a delight in most chinese restaurants in Hongkong and China. I dont think there are many restaurants in Spain that serve them …if anyone does know of any do let me know… They are excellent to serve in a party as a starter or even in your main meal instead of rice or noodles…
I am writing down the ingredients you need but since they need a bit of art to make i will give you the link of the video on youtube so you can watch it and then get the knack of making them!!
Do enjoy and as i say kneading a dough is soo anti stressful!!
white flour, washed towed dried and finely chopped spring onions, salt, cooking oil, a splash of sesame oil (mix both the oils together)
knead a dough out of the white flour and the water with a nice big pinch of salt and knead it for at least 5-6 minutes so you get a nice elastic smooth dough. Make the dough into small balls and roll into a thin round. Spread a bit of the mixed oils on the round and then sprinkle with finely chopped spring onions. Roll it into a roll and seal the edges. Then fold it into a spiral and flatten it and roll it out again. Deep fry it on medium heat till golden brown and please watch the video to understand it better.
METHOD ON VIDEO:
can be also made in this shape
To make it this shape just roll the dough into a round, spread the spring onions over it and then roll it up , press slightly and bring the edges together and seal…It will resemble a round ring..Deep fry them and then cut into half…
