I am always in the search for something new to cook everyday especially now that I am running out of recipes that I know by heart (yes most of the old recipes here you see in this blog did not come from any cookbook but these are dishes that I learned and tried in the first 30+ years of my life). Every time we eat outside I always try to recreate them at home by deciphering or guessing what ingredients was present on what was served, every time we also we visit a supermarket I always read the ingredients that are present on a food item that I have an interest on. This post is one of those that I gained interest, it is fried, it looks easy and it is seafood, so I pulled one out of the freezer and read what it is composed of. After reading the contents, it looks like I have everything I needed at home so there’s no need to buy some extra ingredients which is good. After the grocery, the minute I stepped inside the house I made one and here is the result, and I loved it.
Had you tried imitating food items you see in the restaurant or the supermarket? Share your experiences and recipes.
500g prawns, roughly chopped
4 tbsp cornflour
1/4 cup chopped chives

- In a mixing bowl, combine prawns, cornflour, chives, sesame oil and salt.
- Place one tablespoon of the prawn mixture at the end of a spring roll wrapper, start rolling resembling a long cone until it reaches the other end, moisten the other end and fold to seal.
