Spring Rolls


Ingredients:
1/2 lb ground chicken
1 small pack cole slaw mix
1/2 pack of bean sprouts
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
Green onions (chopped)
1 small bulb onions (chopped)
1 pack spring roll wrappers (25 count)
1 egg (beaten - to seal the roll)
Maggi, Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for deep frying

Directions:
Add some oil to a pan and then add the onions. Add the chicken and cook till well done. Be sure to break the chicken apart while it's cooking. Season with maggi, salt and pepper.

Turn the chicken out into a plate and then add the vegetables and sauté for about 2 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Return the chicken to the pan. Add the soy sauce and oyster sauce and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Spread the filling out on a tray and let it cool down well.

After the chicken/veggie mixture has cooled down, start filling and rolling. Here's a quick tutorial on how to roll.
Picture from: www.alaskasprouts.com

Brush the side labeled 4 in the diagram above with egg to seal

Fill and roll all 25 wrappers.

Fry the spring rolls in batches. Do not over crowd the pan.

Dry out on a paper towel after frying. It's still very hot so resist every temptation to start eating them.

Enjoy with your friends and loved ones :)

Some people like spring rolls with sweet and sour sauce, I like mine without…whatever floats your boat.


Note: If you can't find a pack of cole slaw mix in stores, simply shred some carrots and cabbage.

    1. Karis, I have never attempted making the pastry myself cos i have seen it being made before and man, it's a tedious process for someone like me who would go for the readily available alternative of store-bought wrappers. But maybe i shud brave it out one day and put the recipe on how to make the wrappers. The recipe calls for just 3 ingredients (flour, salt and water) but it's the slapping (for elasticity) and waiting process that just tires me.

    1. Hi, you can actually make the spring rolls and freeze them till you're ready to fry. Just pop out of the freezer and fry. If u have to stack them on top of eachother, be sure to put a thin clear film between each layer.
