Crunchy Spring Rolls

Family is very important in my life. Having a big family in the Philippines, we do share almost everything. It´s just like being married to a family, "in poorness and in wealth, until death do us part". Well, that´s in my family. There´s argument and misunderstanding sometimes but in times of problems and sicknesses in life, we still have a heart to help each other.

The best thing that we do appreciate, is family bonding by having a picnic at the beach with those delicious Filipino foods that my late mother used to cook. It was always fun organizing the picnic and cooking together in our kitchen. One of the recipes that my mother taught me was making her crunchy spring rolls. I call this recipe Pedia´s Crunchy Spring Rolls as my tribute to my late beloved mother.

This is my mothers´ family recipe that I kept to myself for many years but now I will share it to you as a friend. Take note that if you have a lot of helping hands, the time you spend for making this finger food will be lesser than 2 1/2 hours.

How To CooK?

  1. First thing to do is to wash, peel, seeds remove from bell peppers, slice and chop all the vegetables. Chop the garlic and onion. Slice the carrots, chayote, bell peppers and chinese cabbage into thin stripes. Cut the spring onion into small pieces.
  2. Heat the wok. Saute the garlic and onion into the heated wok. Add the pre-wash ground pork meat and stir it well. Leave for a few minutes. Stir every now and then until it gets a bit brown.
  3. Add the carrots and stir. Add the chayote, bell peppers, chinese cabbage and the soybean sprouts. Mix them well. Then add the chopped spring onions. Stir into the vegetables. Taste with salt, pepper and soy sauce. Set aside and let it cool for ca.10 minutes to be ready for rolling. Note: The vegetable should be half done as it will still be fried in a friteuse or frying pan.
  4. Put 1 piece of spring roll pastry on a plate. Put 2 tablespoon of the filling in the pastry. See the photos on the left side. Roll the pastry with filling against you, then fold the right and left sides of the pastry inside the roll. Roll again and then sealed the end of the roll by making it a bit wet with water. Put the spring roll on a big plate as more rolls will follow.
  5. Make another spring roll one after the other and put them neatly on the plate. In this recipe, it will be 30 pieces big crunchy spring roll you can make.
  6. Now, we will do the final frying. Heat the friteuse to medium heat. Fry the spring rolls until they are golden brown. Put the fried spring rolls on a bowl with kitchen paper so that the remaining oil will come out. Let them stand on the bowl or a deep plate. When they are all fried, they are ready for eating.
  7. Serve the crunchy spring rolls with sweet and sour sauce bought from Asian shop.
