Char Leong





What in the world is 'char leong'? It was unknown to me until a friend asked if i knew how to make them. This dish is a match made in heaven. The rice rolls which are soft married so well with the crispy 'yau char kway'. Eaten with a sweet sauce which has sesame paste in it and chilly sauce to bring it to another level.


How to make the chee cheong fun is here http://lilyng2000.blogspot.com/2007/04/chee-cheong-fun.html and http://lilyng2000.blogspot.com/2008/07/chee-cheong-fun-iii.html
To assemble:
Make the yau char kway ahead and then make the chee cheong fun.
Place 1/2 of the yau char kway(trim the length to fit the chee cheong fun) in a cooked chee cheong fun and wrap it like you would for a spring roll.
Serve with a sweet sauce and also chilly sauce.
Bon appetit
