Ingredients for Spring Roll Wrapper/Sheets
  • 200g of all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 300ml of water, 20ml extra if necessary.
Ingredients for Spring Roll Filling:
  • 1 lbs of ground turkey/beef/chicken
  • ½ of a medium onion, sliced

  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 1½ tablespoons of cooking oil

How To Make Spring roll wrappers/sheets
  1. 1
    Measure your flour and salt into a bowl and mix together. Add water gradually and mix well to prevent any lumps formation. Additionally, you can strain your batter to remove lumps not seen (optional).
  2. 2
    Get your non-stick pan and place on the lowest heat. With the aid of a pastry brush, brush the batter on the pan to form a circular shape or till it covers the entire pan. Adjust the heat slightly higher, allow to dry and/or till the wrapper becomes easy to remove from the pan.
  3. 3
    Place the wrapper on a damp kitchen towel and cover so it doesn’t dry out. Clean the pan with a wet cloth and repeat the process till all the batter is finished.
Directions: How To Make Spring roll

  3. 3
    Add your shredded cabbage and carrot and stir-fry for about a minute then remove from heat. Set aside to cool.
  4. 4
    Mix a tablespoon of flour with a tablespoon of water and set aside to be used as the sealing paste.
  5. 5
    On your spring roll wrapper/sheet, add about 1 tablespoon of your filling (Don’t overfill so it doesn’t burst out while frying). Roll it towards the end and seal with the sealing paste in step 4. Repeat this process till all your sheets are exhausted.
  6. 6
    Fry each in your preheated oil of about 350F till golden brown.
  7. 7
    Serve in small chops or alone.
