Dynamite - my version of a tasty Filipino treat

Dynamite is a Filipino treat commonly served as bar chow, but can also be served as a snack or part of the main meal.

I love cooking this for my family because we all love its spicy kick. I am sharing my own personal version of the recipe.

You will need:
  • 400 grams ground lean pork
  • 20 pieces finger chili
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 whole head of garlic, finely chopped
  • a few sprigs of coriander (kinchay), finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • rice paper 20 pieces (large)
  • cheese
  • oil for frying
  • Make the filling by mixing together the pork, carrots, onions, garlic and coriander. Break 2 eggs over it and add the bread crumbs to act as a binder. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well until the mix is thoroughly blended. Set aside.

  • Prepare the finger chilies. Make a cut along the whole length and remove the seeds. Wash thoroughly and set aside.

  • Prepare the cheese by slicing it into 2 inch sticks.
  • To assemble:
    • Place one piece rice paper on a large plate.
    • Put one finger chili. Stuff it with a cheese stick and one heaping tablespoon of the meat mixture.
    • Fold up the edges and roll.

  • Deep fry in enough oil until golden brown
  • Drain excess oil on paper towels 

Serve with Honey-Mustard dipping sauce.

To make the dipping sauce:
  • Mix 2 parts mayonnaise, 2 parts honey and 1 part mustard. Add finely chopped garlic (optional). Chill for a few minutes.

My yummy Dynamite. Enjoy!!!
