Spring Rolls

Mainly part of East Asian Cuisine like China, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Singapore, but now is famous worldwide :) This recipe tells you how to prepare the covering as well, so you don’t need spring roll sheets available in the market. You can experiment with the stuffing, though we’ve used an assortment of vegetables and sprouts.


For spring roll sheets:
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornflour
3/4 cup milk
2 tsp melted butter
a pinch salt

For The Stuffing
1 tbsp oil
chopped chicken breasts
1/2 cup chopped spring onions whites
1 1/2 cups mixed vegetables (french beans , carrots , cabbage) , cut into thin strips
3/4 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup boiled and roughly chopped noodles
1/2 cup chopped spring onion greens
2 tsp soy sauce
salt to taste

3 tbsp All purpose flour  dissolved in 1/4 cup water
oil for deep-frying

Method :

For the sheets:
1. Combine the plain flour, cornflour, milk, salt and ½ cup of water in a bowl and mix well till no lumps no remain.
2. Grease a non-stick pan with butter, pour 2 tbsp of the batter into the pan and tilt it around quickly to make a 4 inch diameter thin circle.
3. When the sides begin to peel off, turn the pancake and cook on the other side for 30 seconds.
4. Make others out of remaining mixture.

For the stuffing:
1. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan on a high heat till it smokes.
2. Add the spring onion whites, mixed vegetables, bean sprouts and sauté on a high for 3 to 4 minutes.
3. Add the noodles, spring onion greens, soya sauce and salt and chopped chicken breasts and sauté on a high flame for another 2 minutes.
4. Divide the stuffing into equal portions and keep aside.

Final assembling and frying:
1. Place a sheet on a flat, dry surface and place a portion of the stuffing on one of its edge
2. Apply a little flour paste along the edges of the pancake.
3. Fold the top edge over the mixture to seal it firmly.
4. Fold the left and the right side of the pancake in order to get a rectangle.
5. Roll the pancake downwards tightly sealing the ends securely with the flour paste.
6. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make more rolls.
7. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan and deep-fry in batches till they turn light brown in color.
8. Cut each roll into 2 equal portions and serve hot with schezuan sauce.
