The Spring Roll is a Chinese dish that has become so popular that it is now available in bakeries, roadside eateries and posh restaurants too! In fact, frozen Spring Rolls are also readily available in most supermarkets. However, nothing can beat the impact of creating this all-time favourite in your own kitchen, perfectly customised to your taste and enjoyed right off the frying pan! Here, a scrumptious filling of sautéed veggies and noodles perked up with tangy sauces is packed inside readymade spring roll wrappers and deep-fried till crisp. It is always better to cut the Spring Rolls before serving because it helps the insides cool and avoids the spilling of shredded veggies when you bite into it. Nothing matches this treat as aptly as Schezuan sauce, so remember to serve it along with the Spring Rolls.
