An excited YES comes out of my mouth when I saw that Mr Stingy found frozen cheong fun (flat rice noodles with fillings) were available in the bigger Chinese supermarkets - basically not in China Town but have yet to go there to see if there's any.
My trip to Hoo Hing was worth it just to find these. They are expensive. More expensive than eating these at a restaurant. Sigh. The prawn cheong fun is £3.99 and the beef cheong fun is £3.30, whereas restaurants would sell them for less than £3.
Well, it's worth a try since this is the first brand I have come across to make this available in frozen format. A packet of sweet soy sauce is available, which I suggest you should defrost using a bowl of warm water (just don't open the packet).
Instead of using a pan, I used another way of steaming... a big massive rice cooker. The easiest style of steaming. ^_^
Post steaming of around 20 minutes (just to make sure everything is cooked) this is what it turned out to look like,
You add the soy sauce on top and voila!
Unfortunately, this happened when taking it out,,, they split easily. It always happens especially in restaurants. So don't worry, it does happen to us Chinese peeps too!
The taste was ok, just the prawns weren't extremely the freshest type. The soy sauce on the other hand is the bit I like the most about this dim sum. ^_^
Next, I tried the beef one, did exactly the same as the prawn one above.
This has some crunchy water chestnut inside and some sort of peppery spice probably to get rid of any bad tastes and smells. I like this one! Surprisingly there were loads of the beef one in the freezer. The prawn ones were almost gone and the char siu cheong fun was completely gone!!
Well the pork one is the only one I have to try... if you like these, hope you can them!!
