everyday that we make deep fried food, but the day we do, its a welcome
indulgence. Given that the mercury has dipped in the past couple of weeks, we
all enjoyed this rather scrumptious veg spring rolls filled with lots of
veggies. Both the kids enjoyed and we had just a few left for the snaps.
Highlight of this dish was the elder girl helped me in making these and she
rather enjoyed rolling the wraps.
This is a
popular appetizer, and the fillings are pretty much endless : Tofu, bean
sprouts, cabbage etc. Non vegetarians, I am told, enjoy theirs with shrimp,
chicken or even bacon. Enjoy these with a steaming cup of tea or as an
appetizer to add more zest to your party / get together.
