Method

00:15
 
Place all the ingredients except the cabbage leaves into a food processor and blend to an almost smooth mixture. Don’t blend until completely smooth; try to retain a little texture. Set aside to chill in the fridge.

Blanch the cabbage leaves in a large pot of boiling water for a couple of minutes – just to soften slightly, don’t overcook. Lay on a wooden board and cut ribbons of cabbage about 4 cm wide.

Roll the prawn and chicken mixture into about 4 cm (30 g) balls. Place each ball on a strip of blanched cabbage and roll up.

Place cabbage rolls into a bamboo steamer, but not so close that they touch. Place steamer over a pot of boiling water. Steam for about 10 minutes until prawn and chicken mix is cooked through.

Arrange on a serving platter. Serve immediately while still warm. Low-sodium soya sauce makes the perfect dip.
