Crispy Chinese Cruller with Sesame Seeds

Sometimes, you can spot a dish using Chinese crullers coated with honey or syrup and sesame seeds at the vegetarian stalls. Here is a simplified and super-fast recipe where you just need to buy some ready-made Chinese crullers around S$0.50-S$0.70 per piece. But remember, consuming too much of Chinese crullers is not that healthy as it is deep-fried. In this dish, you can limit the amount of Chinese cruller used and increase the portion of vegetables.

Preparation: 13 mins, Cooking time: 7 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 1 chinese cruller, halved and cut into 4 portions
° 150g-200g iceberg lettuce, finely shredded
° 50g carrot, peeled and finely shredded
° 40g maple syrup
° 4-5 tablespoons roasted sesame seeds
° 1 tablespoon vegetarian salad cream (optional), or to taste

Method

1. Dip the Chinese cruller in the maple syrup and then coat with sesame seeds. Repeat for the rest. Alternatively, brush the Chinese cruller with maple syrup and sprinkle sesame seeds on it.
2. Place the coated Chinese cruller in the over toaster and toast for 5-7 minutes.
3. To serve, place the shredded lettuce and carrot on a serving plate. Arrange the toasted Chinese cruller on top. Squeeze some vegetarian salad cream on top and around, if desired.

oh, it is called cruller. I don't know what their names are and called them Chinese fritters (as in like banana fritters but without the banana) hahahaha...

Btw, I asked MZS already. They dishes don't use eggs. So you can go try their yuan yang rice and "steal" their recipe lah.. hehee..

Hi VB

I love your recommendation. I tried MZS Stir-Fried Petai with Wing beans, okra, egg-plant plus sambal chilli. They had reduced the amount of oil used.

The petai dish that i had in Malaysia is nice but without so many veg plus there was a layer of oil on the plate.

Ok, i will like to go back them again, will try yuan yang rice.

Hmmm, i wonder how they make the salad cream - green and minty with tiny tiny chopped mint.

Adding mint syrup (like those used for Bubble tea) to the mayo? Must figure out, i love it very much. Even my little one finish up the salad, which he usually won't.

Thanks VB :)

Cheers

Crystal, you asked them to put less oil for your 4 heavenly God dish? Can meh? Hehe.. i dare not tell them how to cook scared they scold me coz I dunno how to cook.. :P

Hi VB

I didn't ask them and they didn't used that much oil, i am surprise as usually sambal chilli dishes will have a layer of oil at most of the eateries. :)

Sometimes, i would request whether eatereies can reduce the amount of oil if i had tried the dish/food few times before and is too oily.

Some are real professional and some would tell me that it is not nice without that much oil, then i will tell them i am on diet lor! :p

Cheers

Hi VB

I had it at MZS @ BB, item 602. They serves different sauces? I almost wanted to ask them do they sell the sauce alone.

I had the yuan yang rice you recommended. Tasty, good for the price but too much rice. Something new too.

I think the 'egg' is made from tofu, but their is a little bit different with little holes, not sure whether they frozen the tofu prior thawing and mashing. The flavour of the 'egg' comes from the vegetarian ham.

Thanks VB, very interesting :) BTW, if you have not mentioned, i won't be able to know all these dishes, i can't find them on their menu.

cheers :)
