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.

Method

Step 1

Whisk all the ingredients for the pancake together with enough water to make a smooth batter. Strain and set aside for half an hour. To make the filling, heat one tablespoon oil in a pan, add the ginger, garlic and green chilli stir-fry for half a minute.

Step 2

Add the red chilli paste and spring onion. Sauté for a minute and add the crabmeat, shrimps and fish fillet. Sprinkle the MSG, soy sauce, vinegar and salt.

Step 3

Mix well and cook till the filling dries up and starts sizzling. Remove, cool and mix in the bean sprouts. Heat a non-stick pan and brush a little oil. Mix the batter well and pour a ladle full, swirl the pan to coat and pour back the excess batter.

Step 4

Cook on medium to low heat, till it starts leaving the sides of the pan. Remove the pancake carefully and cool. Repeat and make twelve pancakes. Divide the filling into twelve equal portions.

Step 5

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

Step 6

Heat sufficient oil in a wok and deep-fry the prepared rolls in moderately hot oil, turning the rolls frequently until crisp and golden brown in color. Drain on absorbent paper. Serve hot with a dipping sauce of your choice.
