spring-rolls-recipe
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!!

Spring-roll-step-by-step


Vegetarian Spring rolls

Recipe Cuisine: Oriental  |  Recipe Category: Snack
Prep Time:25 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins     Makes: 20

Ingredients


Cabbage&carrot,finely chopped - 2 cups

Pepper (black/white) - 1 tsp

Soya sauce - 1/2 tsp

Salt - As needed

Olive oil - 2 tsp

Spring roll sheets - Frozen, shop brought

Maida/ APF - 1 tblsp

Oil - To deep fry

Method

  1. To julienne carrot, the easy way is to thinly slice it diagonally and then stacking the slices and cut into strips. You need sharp knife for better results. 
  2. 1-step
  3. For cabbage julienne, just slice it, you will have fine julienne. Heat a pan with olive oil and add the carrots first and fry for a minute.Then add the cabbage and fry for one more minute in high flame.
  4. 2-step
  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.That’s all,our stuffing is ready.
  6. 3-step
  7. To make the spring roll, 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. Take one sheet carefully and keep as shown in the picture. Keep the stuffing a little above one corner.
  8. 4-step
  9. Take that corner and roll in such a way to cover the stuffing until half way.
  10. 5-step
  11. Make a paste of maida with little water and use that to line the corners of the pastry sheets as shown in the picture. 
  12. 6-step
  13. Roll till half way as shown. Fold the corners both the sides towards the center shown in the picture. Again roll tightly to make it completely sealed.
  14. 7-step
  15. Repeat the process to finish the stuffing. Keep covered until cooking,to avoid drying. 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. Or deep fry in hot oil. Oil should be hot while you drop and cook in low flame until it is golden in colour. Keep turning for even cooking.
  16. 8-step

Notes

    • Until step 8 before deep frying, you can finish and cling wrap it in a plate, keep it refrigerated to fry later part of the day. Or freeze it and can be used upto a week or 10 days.
    • To get crispy spring rolls, you must cook in low or medium flame.

CARROT JUICE

   I am very bad in eating vegetables. Applies to healthy juices too. When I saw this eye appealing and attractive title Carrot juice – The natural Fanta 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

Ingredients


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

Method

  1. Chop the carrots after cleaning them and the ginger as well.Grind them in the juicer jar with enough water.Strain it using a double strainer or a tea strainer(cloth).Squeeze the lemon and add sugar,mix well.

    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.
