I have an issue here, there are so many items queuing to be upload, while I have so little time to work on it. So, I will try to be more straight from now on, several new upload will probably photo heavy and might not have too many stories, etc.
Basically you can use lotsa ingredients for the filling. You can use chicken chunks or prawn. But this time I use only 3 simple ingredients. Stir fry daikon and carrot, plus cilantro. Simple, yet satisfying. By the way, I'm using store-bought Spring Roll wrapper, easily find at frozen food section.
1 daikon, sorry I forgot to measure the weight. It is quite big, appx 150-200 gr, julienne cut
2 small-medium size carrot, julienne cut
4 onion, thinly slice
2 garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp cooking oil
50 ml water
sweet soy sauce 2-3 tbsp
light soy sauce 1 tbsp
oyster sauce 1 tbsp
salt and pepper
some cilantro leaves, or you can substitute it with chopped fresh scallion
More cooking oil for deep frying
To seal the spring roll, mix together :
1 tsp cornstarch
1. Heat your pan/wok with cooking oil, saute the sliced onion, chopped garlic until fragrant.
2. Add the daikon n carrot, stir fry until the vegetable are soften. Add the water.
3. Add in the sweet soy sauce, light soy sauce, oyster sauce and salt pepper. Have a taste. Add in the chopped cilantro
4. Turn off the heat when the water has absorb and the vegetable texture is a bit soft. Set aside
Assembling the spring roll :
Place wrapper like diamond, on a clean and dry surface. Place 1 tablespoon of filling near the corner. No more than that! Make sure the wrapper is damp, if its dry it will break.
TIP: Less filling, the better. Overstuffed spring rolls break apart in the oil.
Roll and then fold the sides, make sure you don't make air pocket, it will trap the oil, means you will have oily spring roll. Paint the edges with water+cornstarch
Pre-heat your pan, pour enough cooking oil for deep frying. Do not over crowd the spring roll in the pan. They wont cook evenly.
Carefully slide in the egg rolls, a few at a time, to the oil to fry. Turn the spring rolls occassionally to make it brown evenly and fry for about 3 minutes. Let cool.
