It's basically meat and three veg , , , , well as many veg as you like, rolled up in a spring roll sheet. They are a meal in themselves. Like a stir fry (only sliced finer) that is placed on a bed of rice, in these Spring Rolls, I put rice in, so it is effectively a meal all rolled up, easy to shove in our anxiously awaiting gobs.
Veg , , , , anything really, I try to get as many colours in there. Red & Yellow capsicum. (not green caps). Broccoli for green. Cabbage for white. Carrot for orange. Peas for green , , , , hey, we got green but who doesn't love peas
After I have sliced the veg into thin pieces, I "steam blanch" the veg.
Rice vermicelli, cut short. Just place in water , , , , voila.
Rice , , , , as per "to make rice".
Today I am making Chicken Spring Rolls and Prawn ones too.
Fry mince , , , , as per "fry mince" (season to taste, I use a chicken seasoning). A little trick is, when frying the mince and breaking it up with a wooden spoon and once the minced chicken (or any other meat you choose) has lost it's raw look, then use a potato masher in a repeated down & twist push. This helps separate the mince.
With the Prawns, I use already cooked SA King Prawns, and dice them up.
Combine all ingredients and if need be, season again.
This is the Prawn Spring Roll mix. The Chicken mix looks the same but , , , , yep, you guested it , , , , with chicken in it instead of Prawns.
Kids love helping out , , , , which saves me having to trick them into Child Labor .
This is the Chicken mix being used first.
Here's the very simple method of rolling up the Spring Rolls.
Start rolling to halfway.
Fold in the corners.
Once both corners are folded in, continue rolling.
Rub an egg wash (a beaten egg , , , , eggs are tough, they like being beaten), so place an egg wash dob on the last corner to stick it to the roll when it is fully rolled up.
Then deep-Fry the Spring Rolls in hot oil.
