Chinese Style Lettuce Wraps With Nutty Sauce

I just love chinese foods, whenever i taste anything different and new in this famous cuisine i will try out immediately and most of my trials through this cuisine turns out awesome and delicious..I had this no cook lettuce wraps recently at my friend's place and i have completely fallen in love with this fresh, crunchy and nutty lettuce wraps where she used carrots, cabbage leaves,beans sprouts, cucumber,roasted peanuts and cooked rice noodles tossed everything in light soya sauce, sugar and rice vinegar,rolled and served with crunchy lettuce leaves also we loved her sauce which she served along with these crunchy lettuce wraps ..I prepared both together yesterday for our dinner, needless to say that this crunchy lettuce wraps vanished within few minutes and finally i took a picture of two lettuce wraps left for me..My H loved it much and my lil ones too..



9nos Lettuce leaves
1no Carrot (chopped as long strips)
5nos Cabbage leaves (chopped as long strips)

1/4nos Cucumber (chopped as long strips)
1/4cup Cooked rice noodles
3tbsp Peanuts (chopped roughly)
2tbsp Light soya sauce

1/2tsp Sugar

Combine together the carrots,cabbage leaves, beans sprouts, cooked rice noodles, cucumber pieces and peanuts in a large bowl also mix together the soya sauce, rice vinegar and sugar in an another bowl, add gradually the sauces to the veggies and toss gently..


Place a lettuce leaves in a plate, arrange sauced veggies over the leaves and roll them as we do to roll the spring rolls, serve immediately..u can tie the lettuce wraps either with a garlic chives or pick with a tooth pick..
