So much excitement in one small package! This Chinese delicacy is named Dragon Roll because it is as spicy as a dragon’s fiery breath. Assorted veggies, sautéed on a high flame to retain the crunch, are flavoured with pungent Schezuan sauce, rolled in maida wrappers, and deep-fried till perfectly crisp. Made in a convenient, handy size, this snack is perfect for cocktail parties.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the garlic and sauté on a medium flame for few seconds.
- Add all the remaining ingredients, except the schezuan sauce, and sauté on a high flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the schezuan sauce, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute. Keep aside to cool slightly.
- Combine the plain flour with 1 tbsp of water in a bowl, mix well and keep aside.
- Divide the wonton wrapper dough into 12 equal portions and roll each portion into a 100 mm. (4”) diameter circle using a little plain flour for rolling.
- Place one wonton wrapper on a flat, dry surface and place 1 tbsp of filling at the top edge of the wrapper.
- Apply a little plain flour paste along the edges of the wonton wrapper.
- Fold the topmost edge of the wrapper over the filling and seal it tightly.
- Fold the left and the right sides of the wonton wrapper.
- Roll the wrapper downwards tightly, sealing the end securely with flour paste.
- Repeat the steps 3 to 6 to make the 11 more rolls.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep-fry the rolls, a few at a time, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
- Serve immediately with schezuan sauce.
