Do you want to impress your guests tonight, cooking them something they don't expect? Try a menu all inspired by the Chinese cooking. Here is a complete menu from appetizer to dessert!
Chinese appetizer: spring rolls
Inevitable, they are one of the most loved dishes of this culinary tradition. For spring rolls, first of all, take care of the vegetable filling, which is nothing but onion, carrots and cabbage, finely chopped and sautéed in seed oil wok. When cooked, add a dash of soy sauce and bean sprouts, which give crispness. Cut the filo pastry into rectangles and garnish with the vegetables, taking care to seal the edges well. Then fry the bundles in hot seed oil and dry them in absorbent paper.
First course: soy spaghetti with seaweed and mushrooms
Soy noodles are a must in Chinese cuisine. These we offer are accompanied by Goma Wakame seaweed and shiitake mushrooms. Cut the latter into strips, pass them in sesame oil. Finally, add the previously boiled seaweed and spaghetti. Season with a dash of soy sauce. Here is a light dish suitable also for those who observe a vegetarian diet.
First course: Cantonese rice
Do you prefer rice to pasta? Serve Cantonese rice, of course. You need basmati rice, but you can also do it in the red rice variant. Boil the rice, and in the meantime, sauté peas in a pan with cooked ham cut into small cubes. Separately, prepare a thin omelette. Once the rice is ready, add it to the rest of the ingredients in a wok and sauté in a little oil. At the end, to add flavor, add a dash of soy sauce.
Second course: chicken with almonds
Hand polls, almond chicken is one of the Italian recipes that Italians like best. To prepare it, it is very simple: just cut the chicken into cubes and marinate it in a mixture of beaten egg, salt and wine. Then it should be sautéed in a wok with almonds and at the end of cooking, it should be flavored with soy sauce and sautéed in potato starch dissolved in water, to create the sticky effect.
Dessert: fried ice cream
When this recipe arrived in Italy, we all asked ourselves: but how does ice cream stay cold inside the hot batter? Now we reveal it to you. Take your favorite ice cream and prepare some balls, to put in the freezer for half a day. Now concentrate on the batter: prepare it by mixing 1 egg, 150 g of soft wheat flour and 50 g of starch and adding to the mixture of icy water, to thicken it. Dip the balls of ice cream in the batter and then refreeze them in the freezer for another 5 hours. Take them out and dip them in hot oil until golden. Dry them with absorbent paper and serve.
