Vegetable Spring Rolls Recipe, a quick and easy snack if you have pre-made spring roll wrappers. The filling is a breeze to make and highly customisable.
- Mixed vegetables – 2 cups
- Onions – 1/2 cup, sliced
- Ginger garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
- Soya sauce – 1 tablespoon
- Chopped green chillies – 1
- Salt and pepper – to taste
- Oil – 1 tablespoon
- A fistful of coriander leaves (cilantro)
- Slice the vegetables into long pieces. I used carrots, beans, cabbage, peas, corn and capsicum
- Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions until transparent and pink.
- Add the ginger garlic paste and fry for a few more seconds
- Next, add the vegetables and green chillies, sprinkle some water and cook closed until soft yet crunchy.
- Turn heat to high and add the soya sauce.
- Mix well for a minute on high.
- Lower heat. Mix in salt and pepper.
- Garnish with chopped coriander leaves (cilantro)
- Remove from heat and set aside to cool
- Thaw your pastry sheets per package instructions
- Add 2-3 tablespoons of the filling per sheet and roll them (see pictures below)
- Deep fry until golden brown
- Serve hot with ketchup or chilli sauce
- Make sure the vegetables don’t get overcooked and soggy. They should still be crunchy
- Don’t add too much water to the vegetables, this will make the mixture too watery and soggy making it harder to roll
- You can use any mix of vegetables for the filling you want. However, cabbage and capsicum really enhance the taste
- TO MAKE BAKED SPRING ROLLS: if you are using store-bought spring roll pastry, this will get you results that are almost identical to deep frying. You do have to eat them hot and fresh though. I usually bake them for about 15-20 mins on a baking tray lined with aluminium foil at 180C. Just keep an eye on them and remove from oven when golden brown
