Treat everyone to a popular street food from northern China made with crispy wonton wrappers. A great idea for a snack, an easy lunch or a simple but nutritious dinner. Wonton wrappers are readily available in supermarkets or specialty food stores.
- 8 wonton wrappers
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 3 tbsp black bean sauce
- 1 tbsp Chinese hot sauce
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
- 2 chopped spring onions
Preheat oven to 200°C. Arrange wonton wrappers on a sheet of baking paper on an oven tray. Coat with non-stick cooking spray. Bake until golden, about 7 minutes.
Whisk milk with flour and oil until smooth. Place black bean sauce and Chinese hot sauce in two bowls; add 2 tsp water to each bowl; set aside.
Set medium non-stick pan over high heat; coat well with cooking spray or oil. Pour a quarter of flour mixture into pan and spread into thin, even layer. Beat 1 egg in small bowl and pour over crêpe; spread into thin layer.
Cook for 1 minute or until almost completely set. Carefully flip crêpe and brush with some black bean sauce and hot sauce. Scatter some coriander and spring onion over the crêpe.
Slide crêpe onto flat surface and place 2 crisp wonton wrappers down the centre. Fold crepe over wonton wrappers to enclose and cut in half. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
