Teochew Vegetarian Rolls / Kwang Chian 潮州灌腸 /光煎

This was a vegetarian dish that I cooked during CNY. Usually we practise full day vegetarian meal on CNY day 1. And i always just cook Loh Hon Chai to enjoy through out the day. But this year, i cook an extra new dish, a Teochew traditional snack called Kwang Chian after i saw a recipe in Chinese newspaper. I have never had this snack before, after tasted it, i just simply like this snack, taro and Chinese five spices nice fragrance, crispy beancurd skin after deep fried, nice aroma of peanuts, yum yum.

Teochew Vegetarian Rolls /Kwang Chian 潮州灌腸 /光煎
*makes 5 rolls

1 large sheet of beancurd skin (for making Ngor Hiong type)

300g taro, shreds
300 yam bean, shreds
100g rice flour

150g cooked peanuts ( I use pressure to cook for 20mins)
3/4tsp salt
1/2tsp Chinese five spices powder
White pepper

  1. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl till combined.
  2. Cut beancurd skin into medium size (I didn’t use finish the whole sheet), spoon in some filling, roll and tuck in the sides, roll up then seal the end with flour batter (flour and water).
  3. Place on a steaming rack with the seam side down. Steam the rolls over medium heat for 20mins. Let the rolls cool down in room temperature. You can pack them in air tight bags and freeze it for later consumption.
  4. On the day of serving, slice the rolls, and deep fried till golden brown. Serve with chili sauce.
