Vegetarian Gold Coins

Dim Sum and Other Snack Foods

Vegetarian Gold Coins
Ingredients:
1 cup grated potatoes or Chinese taro
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots
1 egg, beaten
1 cup all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water chestnut powder or all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten well
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 cup corn oil
Preparation:
1. Squeeze out excess water from all the grated vegetables, one at a time, then combine them in a large bowl and mix well. Add one egg, cup of flour, tablespoon of sesame oil, and the sugar and mix again.
2. Shape this mixture into balls and put on a greased cookie sheet. Bake then twenty minutes in a pre-heated oven set to 375 degrees Fahrenheit; they will flatten into coins. (They can be frozen after this step and completed after partially defrosting them.)
3. Make batter with the water chestnut powder or a half cup of flour, the second beaten egg, and the teaspoon of sesame oil and set aside until needed. Stir just before using.
4. Heat corn oil and, one at a time, dip a flattened vegetable coin into the batter and into the oil. Do in batches of five to ten at a time. Turn and see that they get to be a light brown on both sides. Then remove and drain and do another batch until all are fried and drained. Serve immediately after frying them.
