Ingredients :

100 g chicken breast meat

125 g lean pork

150 g shrimps, uncooked and shell removed

1/4 cup onions

1 tablespoon rice wine

2 teaspoons salt

5 tablespoons cornstarch

2 eggs

1 tablespoon sesame seed oil

Freshly ground Szechwan pepper

A large sheet of cellophane paper

Method :

Chop the lean pork, shrimps, chicken and onions coarsely. Mix in the salt, rice wine and pepper before dividing it into 10 portions. Beat the eggs in a bowl and mix in 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Cut the cellophane paper into 10 pieces of about 10 x 5 cm. On the middle of each paper place a portion of the filling. Rub some egg and cornstarch mixture all around it. Then wrap the sheet round the filling to make the shape of a chicken leg, making 10 'legs' in all. Put them on a plate and steam for about 10 minutes, then take them out and place on a cold plate. Mix the remaining 3 tablespoons 3 tablespoons cornstarch with 3 tablespoons water to make a batter. Heat the oil in a wok or deep-fryer, deep fry each of the 'legs' in the batter until golden and serve hot.
