Homemade Asian spring rolls
I am doing more and more homemade food. I never buy ready made frozen food or powdered stuff like soups or sauces. So, not much I buy, but still some things I do buy I should make myself, like ketchup. That is on my to do list to start making myself.
There is so much you learn about food when you do it yourself. You learn that it is usually rather easy to make things yourself, a little bit time consuming sometimes, but so worth it when it comes to taste and knowing what you are eating.
It´s really easy to do the dough for spring rolls. They are delicious, so homemady, so real : )
With this you have to make the homemade Sweet Thai Chili Sauce.
Give yourself some time to roll out the dough. If you have a pasta machine that would help.
Spring rolls (for 4)
- Flour, as much as you need to get a soft dough
- 1.5 dl water (1 cup is 2.4 dl)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2-3 carrots
- 3-4 spring onions
- 1 red pepper
- 2-3 garlic cloves
- 2-3 tablespoons fresh shredded ginger
- 1 handful mushrooms
- 1/4 head Chinese lettuce
- Fresh coriander, handful
- Dash of soya
- 1-2 msk Thai sweet chili sauce
Cut the vegetable and chop the lettuce. Shred the ginger and slice the garlic. Fry everything in a little bit of oil on a wok.
When ready, set a side.
Roll out the dough thinly and cut into 10×10 cm squares. Put 1-2 tablespoons of the vegetable on the dough. Here is a good demonstration on how to roll upp the dough and good advises in making spring rolls.
Fry the spring rolls in lots of veggie or sunflower oil on both sides for about a minute each side, use wok or a good pot. Make sure the oil is very hot. You can also deep fry them.
I served rice with the spring rolls. I did fry some red pepper I cut small with some spring onion, then added the boiled rice, cashew nuts, fresh coriander and little bit of salt, as well as 2-3 tablespoons of the homemade Thai sweet chili sauce.
It is also good to serve this with chili mayo. Mix together Sriracha sauce and sour cream or mayo, homemade mayo of course 😀
