       Ingredients How to?

  • Boneless chicken breasts - 300 grams
  • Dried red chillies - 2-3
  • Five spice powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Dry sherry (optional)- 2 tablespoons
  • Ginger, finely chopped - 1 inch piece
  • Soy sauce - 2 tablespoons
  • Sugar - 1 teaspoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Spring onions, finely chopped - 8-10
  • Egg - 1
  • Butter paper as required
  • Oil to deep fry

  1. Clean, trim and cut chicken breasts into half-inch pieces. Soak red chillies in half a cup of hot water for ten minutes. Drain, remove stems and cut into thin strips.
  2.  Mix chicken pieces with five spice powder, dry sherry, ginger, red chilli strips, soy sauce, sugar, salt and spring onions. Rest the marinated chicken for an hour, preferably in a refrigerator. Whisk egg with a pinch of salt and keep.
  3. Cut sixteen pieces of rice paper/butter paper measuring six-inch by six-inch. Brush each piece of paper lightly with the whisked egg mixture and place two tablespoons of marinated chicken on one side of the paper.
  4.  Drizzle some marinade on the chicken and roll tightly. Finally press or twist the two ends to seal.
  5. Heat sufficient oil in a wok or a deep pan and deep-fry the paper wrapped chicken for two to three minutes.
  6. Drain well and serve immediately, with a spicy sauce of your choice.

    Recipe Tip:
