How to Make Chinese Cigar

  • Mix flour and salt in a bowl and knead it into a soft dough using lukewarm water.
  • Once done, apply oil and knead it for a minute again.
  • Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add all vegetables along with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Toss well for a few seconds and turn off the heat.
  • Transfer it to another bowl and cool it down to room temperature.
  • Divide the dough into 10-12 small balls. Take one of them and roll it out to make a puri.
  • Put a spoonful of the stuffing mixture on it and fold the two sides vertically.
  • Now, roll it from top to bottom tightly. Apply corn flour slurry on the edge to seal the side.
  • While preparing these rolls, heat oil in a deep-frying pan.
  • Once all the rolls are done, slide 3-4 each time carefully into the pan and deep fry it to a golden brown and crunchy crust.
  • Serve hot with garlic-tomato sauce.
