Recipe for Canadian style Sweet and Sour Chicken Balls and Egg Rolls

Ghotiman | Jun 20, 201912:57 PM    

I miss Canadian style Chinese food I grew up with. I have been in the southern US for the last 20 years and while they have great BBQ the Chinese food here is quite different from my favorites back home. I've been searching for recipe for an egg roll that uses predominantly beans sprouts rather than the cabbage which we get here in the South. I've have also been searching for a great recipe that will give a thick battered moist chicken ball. Over 30 years ago I asked a friend who owned my local Chinese restaurant how they got the chickens balls so moist and with a thick batter. He shared that he used Brodie Flour (self-rising) and also par cooked the chicken. I wish I had asked a few more questions about his process. I would appreciate it if there is anyone willing to share their proven recipes for either Egg Rolls or S&S Chicken Balls.
