Vegetable Spring Rolls / Chinese Spring Rolls
Vegetable Spring Rolls is a great starter/ fried snack that is a classic popular dish in East and South East Asia. During our visits to Chinese restaurants, I always look forward to having deep fried Spring rolls – Chicken, Prawns or Vegetable Spring Rolls! And would relish the crunchy, beautifully seasoned spring rolls devotedly. Earlier we used to make Vegetable spring rolls at home with thick homemade wrappers made of Maida, which is dipped in beaten egg and again in Bread crumbs; it was huge, but tasted good at that time. Now we get ready made Spring roll sheets that are more thin and crispy and tastes super delicious. I think the crunchiness is what adds to the appeal.
Kids love finger food all the time. Making them eat healthy vegetables is a herculean task; hence I try to make vegetables more tempting. Beetroot cutlets, vegetable sandwiches, Spinach fritters, fried Idli snack, Vegetable Au gratin, Paneer Pizza, Corn chaat all are devoured without any fuss. Vegetable Spring roll is another way to make them eat vegetables.
There is nothing more perfect than making this favorite snack at home and enjoying it hot and straight out of the pan. The filling is also important, the vegetables should be just tender and crispy and not overcooked and properly seasoned. Even for American Chop suey, Noodles and fried rice, the vegetables should not be overcooked. Filling choice can be sprouts or noodles with some added vegetables or even chicken or prawns. This Vegetable Spring Roll is deliciously crispy and finger licking good. It is a great starter if you are planning a Chinese dinner. You should also try my other Indo Chinese recipes like Sweet Corn chicken soup, Crispy Honey Chilli Potatoes, Calamari/ Squid fritters, Chili Fish, Szechuan Chilli Chicken, Momos, Vegetable Fried Rice, Honey chilli Chicken, Gobi Manchurian, Chili Paneer, Soya Manchurian, Chicken Noodles, Chili Pork , Manchow soup etc. I can’t wait to start. Are you game?
