We’ve got certain tips and tricks that may help you roll the perfect spring rolls right inside your kitchen. No more spilling of overloaded filling or soggy rolls to serve. Making spring rolls at home might sound like a tedious task, but you'll be surprised at how easily you can toss some up. These four tips will definitely come handy:
1. Experiment With Veggies
The filling of the vegetable spring rolls should be full of veggies, but opt for seasonal vegetables. The taste of the rolls can be enhanced by simply making it juicier and crispier and the easiest way is to use veggies like carrot which gets the crunch. One can also go for soy sauce, lime juice and coriander leaves to bring in the juicy element.
2. Steer Away From Moisture In The Filling
The excess moisture in the filling can make the spring rolls soggy sooner than usual. One way to keep it away is to grate the veggies slow and by hand instead of a machine since rigorous grating can make the veggies release more water.
3. Check Salt
While sauteeing the veggies for stuffing, keep a check on salt. In case you are adding soy sauce to the stuffing, keep the salt in veggies low since the sauce too contains a good amount of salt.
4. Do Not Overstuff
Make sure to not fill the rolls with excess stuffing since the roll can break during the deep-frying process. Too little or too much of the filling doesn’t end up crispy.
