How to cook… Noodle Rolls with Dried Shrimp

This is a simple side dish that you can do as an appetizer. In the ingredients pictured below, you can see wide noodles, a mixture of chicken, tofu and garlic, bean sprouts, dried shrimp and sliced egg in the middle.

Prepare the mixture first by finely grinding cilantro root, garlic and pepper. Heat some oil in a wok and when it is hot add the mixture and cook until the garlic is nearly golden brown. Add the minced chicken and stir-fry until cooked. Next add the tofu and dried shrimp. Season with equal amounts of soya bean sauce and sweet soya sauce. Blanch the bean sprouts in hot water until soft. Beat the eggs and then fry it in a wok so that it is very thin. Roll it up and then slice the egg thinly so that it looks shredded. Put a spoonful of the mixture, together with the bean sprouts and egg, onto the wide noodle and roll it up. Use a sharp knife to cut across the roll without going through to the other side.
