About this recipe: 'Mandu' means 'dumpling' in Korean and Yaki Mandu (also known as Gun Mandu) are the golden fried parcels filled with delicious east Asian ingredients like rice noodles, cabbage, tofu, eggs, toasted sesame oil, spring onion and seasoning. This recipe adds courgettes for an even richer flavour. You will love biting into these crisp-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside parcels of yummy goodness! Note: You can buy wonton wrappers at Asian and Chinese shops or markets.
I grew up on these and they are absolutely wonderful! Most eggroll recipes do not include the rice noodles but they should because it adds so much more texture to the eggrolls. Because our family is full of "hot heads" we usually serve this with a mixture of Korean hot red bean paste, sesame seed oil, and a little soy sauce. Kamsa hamnida!!! - 11 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were pretty good when paired with sauce. (i used a gyoza dipping sauce from this site) The zucchini makes them nice and moist on the inside and the tofu and egg help keep it together. The only thing i would do differently is pulse the rice noodles in a food processor a few times to get smaller pieces so that you dont get a long noodle piece in the middle of the roll. - 08 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
my family loved these! Beware- you will have a lot of filling but we just refridgerated it and had leftovers the next night. Definately will have again. - 13 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
