Jicama Beancurd Rolls

 
This is my jicama beancurd rolls.  I made some of these to bring to my friend's party and save two for ourselves.  The filling is my mung kuan char or stir-fried jicama.  This mung kuan char consisted of jicama, carrot, woodear, garlic and dried shrimps, season with salt, sugar and chicken granules, very simple.  Then, I wrapped it with the beancurd sheet.  I made a mistake as I dipped the beancurd sheet in water, you are only supposed to soften it with wet fingers.  So, the end result was not as crispy.  Also funny looking skin texture.



















It changed the beancurd skin texture and when deep-fried, it was not as crispy.



















One of the roll burst opened when frying.  So lesson learned, never to immerse your beancurd sheet in water to soften before rolling, just wet it with your fingers.  I knew that but still decided to try it out because my beancurd sheet won't seal with cornstarch mixture.  Alas!  now really learned my lesson.  I made lots of mistakes in the kitchen too, I made mistake and learned from it, only then I can improve myself.  :-)

Ching, I usually wipe the beancurd sheets with a wet towel and it works as well. I too made a lot of mistake especially in the kitchen but we learned from it :) Happy Chap Goh Meh to you and your family.

You can used a not too wet towel to wipe your sheets before rolling and to seal it you can made your cornstarch thicker. Just thru trials and error we get a better result. I learn a new word 'Jicama' too here..hehe

Hi, you have a great blog. I have two little girls and I'm very conscious about feeding them healthy nutritious food.

I love jicama and recently made rice paper rolls with rice paper (a traditional vietnamese dish). I have some beancurd sheets that I forgotten about; you have given me some idea what to do with it.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Haha BBOven, because it was served a lot during CNY yeah. ;)

Thanks Erica.

Yen, welcome to my blog. I loved serving nutritious food for my family. Eating healthy has to start young and getting use to. I just switch to serving brown rice for my family.
