Spring rolls are one of my favorite. I even got a order for 100 spring rolls for a function in my neighbourhood. Though it takes sometime to make, it is completely worth every second. It involves some steps to make spring rolls. The most important part is making of the sheets. It takes most of the time, but once you have made sheets and filling, then you are few minutes away from a crispy spring rolls. I have given couple of videos as well for this.I would advice you to double the quantity if you start making the rolls. So that you can freeze half of the spring rolls and fry them whenever you need. It stays pretty good in freezer and taste fresh. This sheets can be used to make samosas or any rolls as well. You can stuff this with any filling as you like. I hope you will love It and tell me if you tried it.
Makes : 150 sheets
All Purpose Flour / Maida- 1kg
Salt as needed
Oil - 5 tblspn + for spreading on the sheets while rolling
Water as needed
Take flour, salt and oil in a bowl. And mix them with your hands so that the oil is well distributed.
Add water slowly and make into a soft dough. Knead it for 5 mins. Cover and let it rest for 15 mins.
Now divide the dough into equal portions. I made it in the size of a small lime.
Take dough ball out and roll it a little. Take a tsp of oil and drizzle over both of the dough and spread it with your hands.
Now stick both the dough oiled side down. Roll this into a thin sheet.
Heat a tawa on high heat. Now place the roti over the tawa and cook for less than 10 sec on each side. The sheet should n't be overly cooked. The doughyness should be gone, that’s it. Don’t over cook the sheets.
Now remove the sheet and find a open part. Now pull that open part so that the sheet will be separated into two thin sheets.
Cover this with a towel so that it doesn't dry out.
Spring roll sheets are done.
How to store them:
Take the sheets and place parchment paper inbetween them and stack it high. Put them in a ziplock back and freeze it.
While you need to use them just warm them in microwave for few seconds so that they become soft and use them accordingly. These sheets gets dry easily so warm small portions as you need.
I would advice to make the springroll till the crumbing part and freeze them. This makes life easier. So whenever you want, you can take the springroll and fry them.
