TEOCHEW TRADITIONAL SNACK KWANG CHIAN

These are pan-fried
Sometime during the Chinese New Year, a blogger friend was asking about this snack when he visited my earlier post. Recently, while browsing through this magazine, I chance upon this recipe which is slightly different from my recipe.
I gave this Kwang Chian recipe a go and it turned out well too.  The texture is soft, with lots of peanuts and it isn’t salty as I thought.   Since these rolls can be prepared and refrigerated until required, I made a double the portion of the original recipe and managed to make 8 rolls. 
I had deep fried and pan fried them.  Both ways, they are delicious and rather addictive eaten on its own or with a good chilli sauce.
The differences between my first recipe and this one are with the seasoning , flours used and method.  The first recipe can be for vegetarians while this one is not as it has  fish sauce and chicken stock granules in it.
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 95 with modifications

Hi Emily, I have 2 recipes for this snack in my blog. Do try and would appreciate if you could let me which one you prefer.

Hi Phong Hong, most people like me can't resist fried food. I can skip breakfast or lunch just for this. Yum Yum and rather addictive.

I have never tried a vegetarian version with peanuts before. Looks yummy!

Hi Joyce, both the vegetarian or non-vegetarian versions have peanuts in it. The difference is only on the seasoning. This one is with fish sauce which is a non-vegetarian ingredient for vegan.
