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.

It is one of the best Chinese recipe i have tasted. The spiciness of schezuan sauce makes it more yummy! It compliments the crispiness of the rolls.
