Chinese new year celebrates Spring, so it’s no wonder that spring rolls (also known as egg rolls/春卷) are popularly served on the reunion dinner table. I love spring rolls any time of the year. I made extras to keep in the freezer, so that I can deep fry them whenever needed.

It’s great to make your own spring rolls because the oil is clean (we don’t re-use oil until it has turned dark), and you can use any filling you like (I dislike bean sprouts so I made a special batch without bean sprouts, just for me). Even though my version do not come with meat, you can add minced meat or chopped shrimp in the filling. The possibilities are endless. The ingredients are very accessible and cheap too.

Before you check out the recipe on the next page, here’s a step-by-step on how to fold the spring rolls.

    Thanks for the shout-out! I was already thinking of making them again when I posted about them earlier, but then the urge “died” . Now that I see yours, feel like making again…LOL!

    Maybe you can add more filling since your wrappers look quite big ?(you bought the larger ones, right?). I don’t know. Maybe they were just right.
    I used the smaller dimensions wrappers when I made mine.

      That’s what I thought initially, so I used two tbsp of filling. Spring roll wraps well but family complained that it’s too “fat” and “chunky”. So I reduced to a heaped tbsp and they said it’s much more presentable (fussy food critics at home!)

    I love fried spring rolls but always afraid they don’t stay crispy for long. Thanks for sharing your way, looks simple and easy. Will give it a try.
