Baked Chinese bread
Something that we love to accompany Asian recipes is with its famous Chinese bread, this time we want to teach you how to prepare Chinese bread in a different way than what we commonly know here in Spain, although it is true that the preparation of this Chinese bread in restaurants in Venezuela is very different from what we know in Spain, in my opinion it is just as simple to prepare and I could dare to say that more delicious.
As we know, the Chinese bread that we order at lunchtime in these Asian restaurants, is fried, but the Chinese bread that today we show you how to prepare, we will make it in the oven, this way it is much healthier and also looks spectacular! once you try it, it will become an addiction!
This Chinese baked bread can not miss when eating a Chinese meal, such as a sweet and sour chicken, sweet and sour pork, Asian beef, chicken in oyster sauce, etc. is a perfect companion! And to make this meal even more complete and delicious, we can also accompany it with their popular spring rolls!!!
