Spring Rolls

Made spring rolls last evening and here is the recipe...will upload the pics too. I didn't forget to take pictures this time..

For the filling
You would need 1/2 cup of each of these chopped finely.
Ginger Garlic paste- 1/2 tsps
Pepper - 1/2 tsps
Red chilly flakes-1/2tsps
Ajinomoto-1/2 tsps
Soy Sauce(optional) - 1/2tsps
Salt as per taste

For the dough
Maida/Refined flour - 1 cup
Oil- 2tsps
A pinch of salt
Knead together all of the above into a tight dough.

Boil water and add the chopped vegetables to it along with salt.
Remove from heat immediately after adding the vegetables
Drain excess water using a strainer
In a pan heat 3tsps oil and add the ginger garlic paste to it
Add vegetables and saute for sometime
Add salt,chilly powder, pepper powder and ajinomoto
Add the vinegar and salt to the vegetables
Mix together and let it cook for sometime
This should take approximately 10 mins to cook

To make the rolls
Take small portions of the dough
Flatten to make thin round puris
Place one/two spoonful of the vegetable filling in the centre of the puri
Roll the puri lenghthwise and fold at the ends/ (see pic below)

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan/kadahi
Keep theflame on high while heating the oil then bring to medium
Deep Fry the rolls on medium/low heat
Remove the rolls from oil and place on paper towel
Serve hot with sauce of your choice.

Note: The best is to keep the flame high initially, moving it to medium after you add the rolls and then altering between medium and low so that the rolls turn crispy.
