8 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups vegetable oil
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons thin soy sauce
3 Tablespoons vegetable or mushroom stock
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1. Sift flour, add salt and two cups of warm water. Knead until smooth, rinse this dough under cold water and remove the starch. Repeat until water is no longer cloudy. Then knead and stretch, and repeat five times or more until all starch is removed and only the protein remains. Tear gluten into small pieces.
2. Heat oil and fry gluten pieces for four minutes, or until golden. Then remove and drain them.
3. Reheat oil, add gluten sugar, soy sauce, and the gluten. Then add stock and simmer until almost all liquid has evaporated.
4. Sprinkle with the sesame oil, and serve hot, warm, or cold.
