Homemade Spring Roll

Thursday, March 11, 2010




This is the first time that i have made spring roll from scratch, i had always bought frozen ready- made spring roll in the past. However, i had recently discovered that they were darn expensive, and feeling being cheated of money when i could have made them myself with only a fraction of the money spent, i decided to do it myself.

To be honest, i was wondering if  i was doing the right thing all the time while rolling the spring roll. I was so afraid that they won’t stay rolled or don’t taste good. If they turn out to be inedible, won’t i  be wasting all my time and effort? Hmm, no matter, here i am, already rolling them, what good would it do to worry now?

Well, after all the hassle, the spring rolls were done. Some of them split open while i was deep-frying them, probably because the oil is too hot. Nevertheless, the rest is quite pretty with the skin translucent, showing the ingredients inside. Little sis took a bite and pronounced them yummy.

Hahaha, i am happy and glad to say good-bye to frozen spring roll!
