Spring Rolls - Tempting vegan appetizer with Indian twist.

I love making those spring rolls. Sweetness of corn+green peas+carrot and hotness of ginger and green chillies give it zesty taste.Try those refreshing colorful crunchy spring rolls.

Ingredients :-

  1. One Medium size onion - finely chopped.
  2. 8 Big size cloves of Garlic - finely crushed.
  3. 2 inch piece of ginger - finely crushed.
  4. 6-7 Green chillies - finely chopped.
  5. 2 cups frozen Green peas. (preferably use petite peas).
  6. 2 cups frozen Corn.
  7. 1 cup grated carrot.
  8. 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro.
  9. 1 Tb.spoon cooking oil and little salt for making filling.
  10. half cup all purpose flour - Add some water and make thick paste.
  11. Oil to fry Spring Rolls.
  12. Packet of Spring roll sheets ( 50 count packet of medium size).

Method Of Preparation :- ( Spring roll filling)

  1. Heat 1 Tb.spoon oil and add chopped onions. Stir it for 4 minutes on high heat.
  2. Add crushed Garlic,Ginger and green chillies. Stir for 2 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Add grated Carrot and stir for 2 minutes.
  4. Add Green peas and corn. Add some salt. Stir for 5 minutes and high heat. Shut off the Gas.
  5. Let it cool for some time. Now add fresh chopped cilantro.

Method of Making/Frying Spring Rolls :-

  1. Keep Spring roll sheets out from freezer for One hour.
  2. At a time take 4-6 spring roll sheets and spread on counter. Fill One Tb.spoon of prepared filling. Fold the spring rolls as per instructions on the packet.
  3. At last fold stage apply little paste of all purpose flour at top corner and close the spring roll.
  4. Heat the oil and set gas at medium temperature. Gently drop the spring rolls and fry them for 3-4 minutes. Do turn them in between. After frying keep them on Paper towel.
  5. Enjoy them with sweet and sour tamrind chutney or Ranch.

Note :-

  1. If you find little water in filling then add 1 Tb.spoon potato spuds. Watery filling might break spring roll and crack while frying.
  2. As you fold spring roll be gentle and roll it tight.
  3. While frying take care that spring rolls are not broken. Broken spring roll will spoil oil and give stains on remaining spring rolls. Proper folding will avoid this mess.
