Scallion rolls. Chinese flower rolls Hua Juan. (花卷）。 These little crispy, fluffy, chewy pillows of scallion-y deliciousness were a must-order at the Chinese grocery store we used to frequent in the vast wild blue yonder of suburban NJ (as opposed to the vast, wild gray setting we find ourselves in now. Harumph).
Indo-Chinese Food: Chicken Manchurian. The secret to a flavorful Chicken Manchurian is the use of chicken stock. Marinated boneless chicken is deep-fried and the golden balls are tossed with a cornflour based ginger-garlic concoction and garnished with a generous amount of spring onion greens. Serve hot to savor the true flavor of this Indo Chinese starter. Click on the image for Recipe.
Spicy Peanut Eggplant And Shallot Stew by IsaChandra Serves 6 – 8 "This soup is very rich and comforting. Just imagine a tawny bowl brimming with eggplant, tomato bits and green bean goodness. I made it for my boyfriend/husband guy, since his favorite soup place stopped carrying his beloved chicken peanut soup. I’ve never had it but I suspect mine is even better, without the bird to boot"
