Serves 4

In northern China they use a special kind of seaweed for this dish, but spring greens, shredded very finely, make a very good alternative. Serve either as a starter or as an accompaniment to a Chinese meal.

Cooking Tip :

Make sure that your deep frying pan is deep enough to allow the oil to bubble up during cooking. The pan should be less than half full.
