   This is also one of the thing I learnt from my SIL here in Singapore. This is the first snack I learnt to make of my own,that too a different cuisine,when I came newly to Singapore. I proudly make this when our relatives visit us…Whistling Very simple to make starter and can make pre preparations and  do in a jiffy after the guest comes. All you need is patience and free time!!

Ingredients:

For stuffing:

Cabbage&carrot,finely chopped 2 cups
Pepper (black/white) 1 tsp
Soya sauce 1/2 tsp
Salt As needed
Olive oil 2 tsp

And Spring roll pastry sheets,ready made.

TJY spring roll pastry

And a teaspoon of maida/all purpose flour for sealing purpose.

Spring rolls

Method:

  1. Heat a pan with olive oil and add the carrots first and fry for a minute.
  2. DSC_0724
  3. Then add the cabbage and fry for one more minute in high flame.
  4. DSC_0728
  5. Add the soy sauce,salt and pepper powder and fry in medium flame for one more minute. or until the cabbage is just done. Retain its crunchiness don’t over cook to make it soggy.

To make the spring roll:
  1. As per the instructions given in the cover of the pastry sheets,thaw the pastry sheets(keep out for 45 mins). Cover with a wet kitchen towel to avoid drying.
  2. DSC_0741
  3. Take one sheet carefully and keep as shown in the picture.
  4. DSC_0742
  5. Keep the stuffing a little above one corner.
  6. DSC_0743
  7. Take that corner and roll in such a way to cover the stuffing until half way.Make a paste of maida with little water and use that to line the corners of the pastry sheets as shown in the picture.

  15. Repeat the process to finish the stuffing. Keep covered until cooking,to avoid drying.
  16. Spring rolls
  17. We can either deep fry or shallow fry these spring rolls. I just used 2 tsps of olive oil to fry in a shallow pan.
  18. Fry in Tawa
  19. Taste wise no compromise,so you can try this way. Fry carefully in medium flame with constant turning over to ensure even cooking and avoid burning!

CARROT JUICE

   I am very bad in eating vegetablesGhost. Applies to healthy juices too. When I saw this eye appealing and attractive title ‘Carrot juice – The natural FantaMartini glass’ in Sharmis blog, I decided to give it a try for myself and my kid. Today I tried it and it tasted awesome. I made without lemon for my kid as he is allergic to citrus and made with lemon for me. It was so refreshing and I am so happy that I consumed carrot,a veggie I hate the most.

Carrot Juice

Recipe Source : Sharmis Passions.

Carrots 2 nos.
Ginger a small piece
Lemon juice from half of a lemon
Sugar or honey 2 tsp
Salt A pinch
Water As needed

Carrot Juice

Method:

  1. Chop the carrots after cleaning them and the ginger as well.
  2. DSC_0775
  3. Grind them in the juicer jar with enough water.
  4. DSC_0777
  5. Strain it using a double strainer or a tea strainer(cloth).Squeeze the lemon and add sugar,mix well.
  6. DSC_0780
  7. Enjoy as such or chilled.

  57. How to freeze the stuffed spring rolls to fry later for z party ? Pls let me know ASAP. Thanks in advance.

    Also while seperating the pastry sheets for puff I have issues. Will spring roll sheets are also difficult to seperate ?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hi Shan,

    I just freeze it in a zip lock arranged in rows. When you need to fry, take out and keep at room temperature for sometime, and you will sure be able to separate it easily without sticking.

    Same applies for separating the sheets. Keep at least half hour and thaw it. Cover the sheet with a wet towel, which makes it easier to remove the top one.

    Hope I helped you a bit.

  64. hi raks, when deep frying the rolls, the inner layer of the rolls is raw...i kept in low flame...how to get the inner layer cooked?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you buy the large sheet, and roll too small (thick with many layers) this would happen. So you can make a large roll and later cut them into 3 or 4. Hope this helps.
