Hot and Sour Soup, Spring Rolls and Crispy Chicken Hoisin Wraps

May 23, 2018

I have often expressed my love for Chinese Food and today’s iftaar was of an oriental flair. We had the hot and sour soup, air fried spring rolls and air fried chicken strips. My family made their own wraps by placing the hoisin dipping sauce for the base, topping it with slithered spring onions, cucumber strips and shredded iceberg lettuce, the crispy chicken and then finally the with sweet chili sauce. It was just the perfect ensemble for the #thesavouryrevolution
