9g lemon juice
6g cornstarch

10. Red Bean Pancake


frozen prata recipes - red bean pancake

Red bean pancake is a sweet item I always reach out to at dim sum restaurants. Recreate this at home using frozen prata and store-bought red bean paste.

This is definitely my favourite recipe on the list—it’s more generously portioned than the red bean pancake you get at Chinese restaurants, and you’re free to stuff the pancake with as much filling as you want. The sesame seeds on top bring a nuttiness that helps cut through the sweetness of the red bean paste too.

Yield: 2 to 3 servings

Time needed: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

4 tbsp red bean paste
2 pieces of frozen prata
Black sesame seeds
White sesame seeds
1 tbsp oil

Directions:

  1. Spread red bean paste on a piece of prata.
  2. Top with another piece of prata, black sesame seeds, and white sesame seeds.
  3. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat, and fry the prata, with the sesame-seed-face down till golden brown, then flip and repeat. Serve warm.
