How To Make Spring Rolls – Recipe By Chef Ranveer Brar:
- Sesame oil – 1 tablespoon
- Ginger (finely chopped) – 1 inch
- Garlic (finely chopped) – 1 tablespoon
- Carrot (half cup) – shredded
- Cabbage (half cup) – shredded
- Onion (medium-sized – sliced) – 1
- Capsicum (julienne) – half cup
- Green chilli (finely chopped) – 1
- Dark soy sauce – half tablespoon
- Sugar – half tablespoon
- Salt to taste
- White pepper powder – half tablespoon
- Spring onion (chopped) – 2-3 tablespoons
- Corn starch – half tablespoon
- Spring roll sheets
- For binding and water slurry
- Refined flour (maida) – 2 tablespoons
- Water – 1 tablespoon
First, heat oil in a pan or kadhai on a medium flame. Put ginger, and garlic and saute until the raw smell wears off.
Gradually, add the chopped vegetables one by one and saute slightly. After that, add dark soy sauce, sugar, salt and white pepper powder. Mix well until the vegetables are half done. Try not to overcook the vegetables.
Add Spring onion and corn starch and cook for a few more seconds. Remove from heat and keep aside.
Meanwhile, remember that you need to defrost the spring roll sheets beforehand and keep them in a damp cloth.
It’s time to make the spring rolls. For this, place a spoonful of filling in the centre, fold the sides and roll it. You must seal the end using a slurry of flour and water.
Make all the rolls in the same manner and heat the oil in a frying pan. Collectively, you can fry the spring rolls prepared. Deep fry them on medium-high heat until they turn golden brown.
Once done, place the rolls on absorbent paper so that it soaks all the excess oil.
Serve the spring rolls hot along with some portion of chilli sauce and soy sauce on the side.
