Instructions

  1. Prepare veggie shreds

    • Julienne all veggies into long shreds. 
    • Soak carrot and radish shreds in ice water for 3-5min. 
    • Remove and pat dry with kitchen towel or cloth.

    Try to keep the veggie shreds at least 5cm in length so it is easier to toss them with chopsticks.

    Ice water makes carrot and radish shreds hold the curled shape, keep the texture crunchy as well as the freshness.

  2. Prepare Pok Chui (crunchies)

    • Cut wanton wrappers into strips.
    • Deep fry until golden brown.
    • Remove and drain

    Make sure the cooking oil is hot enough before deep-frying wanton wrapper, so the crunchies are crunchy.

    • Remove and toss in a serving bowl.
