2 chicken fillets (cut into thin long strips)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
2 full hand-size japanese choy sam leaves or any green leafy vegetable (blanched)
1 bowl white rice or sushi rice
1 sheet seaweed
½ medium size carrots (cut into long strips)
1 small Japanese cucumber (cut into long strips)
1 tsp roasted sesame
accompaniments & garnish:
2 Grade B eggs
1 tsp tapioca starch
1 tsp light soy sauce
3 cherry tomatoes
3 salad leaves
Cut vegetables into long strips.
In a clean non-stick frying pan, brown chicken strips over low medium heat, approximately 5 minute per side or until the chicken is cooked through.
Place a sheet of seaweed on bamboo mat. Lay the fillings (veggie and chicken strips) across but not the centre of seaweed. Sprinkle some roasted sesame on the fillings.
Hold the bottom/closest edge of the mat and seaweed up and begin to roll it up. Tuck in and squeeze the roll inside the mat gently but firmly as rolling it to the end of the mat.
Spread a dab of water along the top seam to hold the roll together.
Lay flat blanched Choy Sam leaves on a sheet of cling wrap, spread out a layer of approx. 5mm thick of rice across the Choy Sam leaves but leave a gap of approx. 1 inch on the edge farther edge.
Place the fillings roll across the rice and begin to tuck in and roll it up.
