Homemade Springrolls & how to make the Wrappers






Hi everyone!

Today, I´m posting my recipe for Springrolls I make at home including the
  selfmade springroll wrappers..It´s very easy to do once you´ve made the first one. 
The fillings vary according to your taste..meat, veggies,  or a mixture of both....
so here it is, I hope you will enjoy this blog. 




 Ingredients :

Wrapper

1 cup All-Purpose Flour
1 Cup Water
1 tbsp Corn Flour

Note: The 1 tbsp of corn flour will make the batter more elastic and the wrapper   
          would not break easily. Never use intense heat while drying the batter,
          otherwise the  wrappers would break...




 Preparations:

 
 1. Mix all ingredients to form a smooth batter. 


  



  2. Grease a non sticking pan using paper towel slightly moistened with
      cooking oil. Heat the pan under medium fire. 



 





 3.When pan becomes hot, remove the pan from fire and by using pastry brush, paint

    the batter briskly onto the pan covering its entire surface.  








4. Put the pan back but this time on low fire and slowly heat the batter

    til it gets dry, turning once.









  5. Place the wrappers on a platter and cover with plastic foil to prevent them from 

    drying til they are ready to use.

Cooking the fillings

Note:
There are many variations of fillings that could be used for your springrolls depending on your preference.. Here,  I used soya sprouts, crushed garlic, onions and cabbage plus the ground beef or 50/50 pork and beef.

Others prefer to use ground meat & cabbage strips only and some use vegetables only.



Ingredients:

150 grams ground beef or 50/50 ground beef and pork
2 cloves crushed garlic 
1 Onion - chopped
150 grams soya sprouts
1 1/2 Cups cabbage cut into strips of about 4-5 cm long
1 tbsp soya sauce (unsweetened)
salt & pepper

 1.  In a hot skillet or pan, fry the garlic, add the ground meat and stir fry til the meat
     becomes pale in color.
2. Add the chopped onions , soya sprouts, cabbage. sprinkle
    with 1 tbsp soya sauce. Continue frying & stirring until all vegetables become 
    tender. 
3. Season the fillings with salt & pepper, adjust seasoning according to your taste.
    Let stand to cool down a bit  before using..


  

  


Spread  the wrapper on the table  and put 2-3 tbsp of the fillings on it.

  

Fold the left & right side of the wrapper carefully towards the center 
as you see it in the pic above.

Fold the bottom edge carefully towards the center rolling 
it til it reaches the other edge. Simply tap the edge with a wet finger 
to seal the springroll.  



Use a large casserole for deep frying... fry the spring rolls  for around 5 minutes
 on each side or fry until golden Brown and crispy. Serve hot with Chili Sauce.



 Well guys, that´s just about a way to make your homemade Springroll wrappers 
and the fillings.  I hope you´ll try this because this is really a simple dish that is delicious.

Happy Cooking!

Wishing all a nice Sunday!
