Not the usual Chinese filling but a Mediterranean one instead. A little time consuming to make but easily frozen for later use.

Makes: 8 to 10 pancakes
60g egg noodles
2 teaspoons oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped and crushed
75g cherry tomatoes, diced
50g button mushrooms, diced
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons tomato puree
125g plain flour
oil for deep frying
Directions Preparation:25min › Cook:20min › Extra time:1hour › Ready in:1hour45min
Put noodles into a pan of boiling salted water. Remove from the heat and allow to slowly absorb the water.
In a little oil lightly fry the onion and the garlic until softened.
Add the tomatoes and the mushrooms then a little salt and pepper and fry gently for about 5 minutes before adding the tomato puree. Stir well and then add the drained noodles. Mix well until the noodles are fully covered. Set aside to cool.
In a bowl or food processor whisk the eggs and then add the milk. While still whisking slowly add the flour until you have a nice, smooth consistency.
Heat a frying pan with as little oil as possible. When it is nearly smoking turn the heat down a little and then add a ladle of pancake mix. Fry lightly on both sides and then remove from the pan. Repeat until almost all the pancake mix has gone but save a little to use as "adhesive". You should have 8-10 pancakes depending on the size of your frying pan.
When everything has cooled place a line of noodle mix along the centre of one of the pancakes. Brush the side edges with the saved pancake mix and then fold in the sides. Fold over the top and start to roll the pancake. Brush more pancake mix along the bottom and then complete the roll. Put to one side with the end of the roll underneath. Repeat for the rest of the pancakes. Leave for at least 1 hour.
If you have a deep fryer then please use it. If not add 5cm of oil to a large saucepan. Heat the oil to 160-170 degrees C. Fry the pancakes two at a time until crispy and brown.
Obviously the filling can be varied to suit your own tastes or the contents of your cupboards.
