					Chinese Recipe Tips

Chinese recipes usually call for very specific ingredients and ways to
cook everything. There are many tips you can use to save time and money
and still have a top notch meal or add ingredients to make a good meal
great.

You can cut corners on rice, kinds of oil, even the kind of meats you
use. Many people take the meat out of a recipe and call it vegetarian.

A delicious alternative to regular cooking oil is sesame oil. Just a few
drops mixed with your normal oil or used by itself, sesame oil makes any
dish have a very unique flavor.

Shrimp cooked in vegetable oil tastes like greasy shrimp but shrimp
cooked in sesame oil taste like a Chinese treat. Sesame oil has a strong
and unique flavor that many people automatically associate with Chinese
food.

It is higher in fat so if you are on a diet, it might not be a good
choice.

Rice is common in all kinds of Chinese recipes. If you make a lot of
Chinese food, you can cook a lot more rice than you know you will use.

You can freeze this excess rice and use it later on for fried rice. This
will save you the trouble of cooking a whole new batch and it tastes just
as good.

Don t be afraid to change recipes. If you have a great recipe for
chicken, try using crab or shrimp next time or changing some vegetables
around.

You might have just created your own unique recipe! This can be a lot of
fun and the more familiar with Chinese recipes you get, the better your
creations will be.
