Sauces, dressings and dips with spices
February 18, 2010


As I told in the post homemade five-spice powder, I prepared a special romantic dinner with chinese dishes for both Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year.
I cooked stuffed wonton, spring rolls, fried sesame croutons, ginger soup, cantonese rice, five spices omelette, pechinese spare ribs and two sauces.

Wonton with sweet and sour sauceThis is one of them: the sweet and sour sauce for steamed wonton, spring rolls and other chinese fried starters.

Yummy wontons! They look like they came out of Chinatown!
In regards to bulgur, I would love more info. It comes in bleached and unbleached (I think unbleached is better) also , what did you do with it? Usually, it is mixed with meat to make kibbeh. It also comes in several sizes; fine and coarse ranging from #1 ti #4. The coarse one is to make pilaf type dishes and it is heavenly, if cooked properly. I have a lot of recipes with bulgur in my blog because it is an essential grain in lebanese cuisine.
