Super quick and easy crispy rice roll (Cheung Fun) snack slathered with a spicy hoisin sauce drizzled with a toasted maple sesame sauce – Chinese street food style!
- 1 package pre-made rice noodle rolls (approximately 12 rolls)
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons sriracha hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for a spicier sauce)
Maple Sesame Paste
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup (can be substituted with honey)
- 2 tablespoons sesame paste (chinese)
- 1 tablespoon oil (light oils like vegetable, corn or canola oils)
Garnishes & Toppings (Optional)
Making the Sauces
- Make the spicy hoisin sauce by combining the ingredients in the list
- Make the maple sesame sauce by combining the ingredients in the list. If the sauce is too thick, add a flavourless oil (canola, vegetable, corn oil) 1/2 tablespoon at a time and mix until it is the right smooth and thin consistency you like.
Crisping the Rice Noodle Rolls (Cheung Fun)
- Remove the rolls from the packaging and separate them into individual sticks. Cut them into small 1 inch pieces.
- (Optional Step) Microwave them for 15-20 seconds to soften them up. This will shave off 1-2 minutes off the crisping time in the frying pan.
- Add a bit of oil into a frying pan or cast iron skillet and set the heat to medium heat
- When the pan is hot, add the rolls and toast them in a single layer so they don’t stick and clump together
- Make sure to flip them so they are crispy on both sides
- Every stove and heat setting will be different, you will know it’s done when it is soft when you press down on them and charred and crispy out the outside
- Drizzle (or drown) the rolls with sauce and enjoy! Save some sauce on the side for dipping!
- Try not to touch or flip them too often when they are toasting. It will give it a better chance to char and brown
- Do not substitute Chinese toasted sesame paste with tahini – it does not taste the same. You can substitute sesame paste with natural unsweetened peanut butter.
