Chinese Recipes


Chinese meals are generally based around two main elements: firstly, a starchy "main food" (Mandarin Chinese: Zhushi) dish such as noodles, rice or steamed buns ("mantou"), and secondly, accompanying meat, seafood or vegetables (Mandarin Chinese: Cŕi).

Chinese meals

It would wrong however to think of China as simply being home to a single cuisine. Each region of the country has developed its uniquely culinary style, and additionally overseas Chinese communities around the world have both adapted traditional Chinese dishes, and developed entirely new dishes.

Some popular Chinese dishes include:
  • Baozi (xiaolongbao) - Steamed buns usually containing meat soup (sometimes seafood or vegetables may be used instead). The buns are initially prepared using a meat gelatin filling, but when the bun is steamed, this melts and becomes soup.

  • Congee - A porridge, usually made from rice, although sometimes barley, cornmeal, millet or sorghum may be used instead.

    Baozi

  • Guotie - Fried dumplings containing ground (minced) meat and/or vegetables.

  • Jiaozi - Steamed dumplings containing ground (minced) meat and/or vegetables.

  • Shuijiao - Boiled dumplings containing ground (minced) meat and/or vegetables.

  • General Tso's chicken - Deep-fried chicken in a sweet-spicy sauce. This dish is very popular in Canada and the US, but is virtually unknown in China.

  • Kung Po chicken - Chicken cooked with Sichuan peppercorns, Shaoxing wine, and nuts (peanuts or cashew nuts). In Western countries, the dish has been adapted to local tastes and ingredients (for example, by using bell peppers), and additionally other meats, or seafood, may be used instead of chicken.

    Kung Po chicken (Westernized version)

  • Mantou - A steamed bun. One of the staple dishes of North China.

  • Peking duck - Originally from Beijing (which used to be known as "Peking"), Peking duck is one of the most famous Chinese dishes. A duck is glazed with a syrup and roasted, it is then carved in front of diners, and eaten by wrapping the duck meat, with scallions or cucumber, and plum sauce, into small steamed pancakes (Mandarin Chinese: pinyin). In the UK, the duck is generally prepared using more spices, fried instead of roasted, and known as "cripsy aromatic duck".

  • Soy egg - A hard-boiled egg in soy sauce, sugar and water, flavored with herbs and spices.

  • Tea egg - A hard-boiled egg, soaked or stewed in tea.

  • Zhajiang mian - Thick wehat noodles with ground pork, stired-fried with fermented soybean paste.


  • Zongzi - Bamboo leaves filled with glutinous rice and other fillings. Zongzi are boiled or steam before eating.

Enjoy Simple, Healthy Versions of Your Favorite Chinese Dishes with The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook

Chinese food is a favorite among many American families. But its harmonious fusion of sweet spice and tangy heat doesn’t have to go hand-in-hand with overly sugary sauces, extra salt, greasy meats, or undesired MSG.

When Charmaine Ferrara moved from Malaysia to America more than 15 years ago, she was struck by the difference between the American adaptation of Chinese food and the traditional Chinese fare she’d grown up on. Charmaine began experimenting with her wok, recalling how her mother and grandmother made dishes, to recreate the meals she was missing. Since then, she’s devoted herself to showing others how simple it is to create delicious Chinese recipes the way they were intended―fresh, flavorful, and light―and in her first Chinese cookbook, Charmaine does exactly that.

In The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook Charmaine has combined the flavors of her heritage with her passion and know-how. The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook makes it easy to enjoy healthy takes on classic Chinese food at home. From steaming to stir-fry, this Chinese cookbook will help you harness the simple power of your versatile wok to make more than 85 healthy, tasty dishes.

With The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook you will:

  • Quickly learn to make meals that swap out heavily battered ingredients and saturated fats for flavorful meats, fresh vegetables, and heart healthy oils
  • Enjoy the easy organization of chapters that follow the structure of a Chinese restaurant menu
  • Discover tips for buying and maintaining your wok so you can use it for years to come
  • Master a variety of techniques for cooking and stir-frying your favorite dishes

If you’re looking for a Chinese cookbook that offers healthy recipes with restaurant-quality taste, look no further than The Healthy Wok Chinese Cookbook.

A common misconception amongst the Western people regarding Chinese cuisine is that they often consider it to be of a completely distinct and unique breed!

While all of the ingredients use ginger, spring onions, garlic, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, vinegar and bean paste, they always tend to combine everything through a highly distinctive method which alters the flavor to a great degree.

Staple foods of Chinese cuisine include but are not limited to

  • Rice - Primarily grown in Southern China, Rice is eaten by Chinese people almost every day. This is considered to be one of the major staple food in China.
  • Noodles - Noodles are considered as the basic staple food in China and they adore these, particularly in the Northern regions.
  • Tofu - Alternatively known as Bean Curd. These are made from water, curdling agent and soy milk and are good sources of protein, iron and calcium while being low in fat. Tofu has been a staple of Asian and Chinese cuisine since the ancient times and has now become popular amongst other regions as well.
  • Meat - While Chinese people tend to eat all kinds of eats ranging from duck, chicken, pigeon, beef to pork and mutton. They primarily tend to lean much more towards pork.

Do you like to make sweet treats to share with friends and family as much as I do?

The Chinese cuisine has a lot of deliciousness to offer. When it comes to desserts though, the definition in China is a little different then what we're used to. We see dessert mainly as a sweet treat after dinner, whereas the Chinese don't reserve a separate part of a meal for eating dessert. In a way they eat dessert whenever they feel like it, either as part of a meal or as snack. Not bad, right?

I have shared some of the most popular and delicious desserts China has to offer. Go ahead and give them a try!
