Chinese Vinaigrette (TM)
This recipe needs advance preparation!
This is a translation of a recipe in Salsas y Aliños con Thermomix (Susaeta Ediciones).
- 200g rice vinegar
- 225g sugar
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons water
- Put the water, vinegar and sugar in the TM and beat 2 minutes / Speed 5.
- Next, add the oil, salt and lemon and beat 5 minutes / Speed 6, then increase to Speed 7 for 10 seconds and stop the machine.
- So that the sauce can acquire a suitable consistency, leave to rest for a few hours.
This is a very simple recipe, which allows you to enjoy the sauce which accompanies salads in Chinese restaurants. The original recipe contains aji-no-moto in place of the lemon. This quirky ingredient can be found in some oriental food shops. In this case you can substitute the lemon for 3 tsps aji-no-moto.
