Golden-fried Crunchy, Meaty Spring Rolls

Serving: 10-12
Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

Spring roll pastry or Chinese egg roll wrapper (one pack of 25-30 sheets)



For Filling

1 pound of Lean Grounded Meat of Choice (Beef, Chicken, Prawn, Turkey, Pork)
2 tablespoons of finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 tablespoons of soya sauce
1 tablespoon of fish sauce
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
Some freshly grounded pepper
Glass noodles (2 small packets)
1 cup of dried shredded cloud ear fungus (soaked in water for 10 minutes)
3 cups of shred carrots
3 cups of vegetable oil for frying

For the Dip

1/3 cup of vinegar
¼ cup of sugar
¼ cup of corn syrup
1 teaspoon of salt

Procedure

Begin by gently peeling off the pastry sheets one-by-one and case them in a damp cloth so that they retain their moisture. To prepare the filling, mix all its ingredients properly till a meat ball like consistency is achieved.

On every sheet add two heaped tablespoons of stuffing in a longish, lean manner and begin folding from one corner going diagonally and tightly (avoiding air bubbles) till you reach the middle of the sheet. You must then fold both the side ends inwards and continue folding athwart till the sheet’s end is reached and then dab on some egg white for sealing the end.

You can make the whole bunch in advance and place in a single layer inside freezer bags to be used for an upcoming party. Next pour the vegetable oil in a wok and once temperature is medium hot gently place the stuffed wrappers in the oil and deep fry till they turn faint brown in colour and then place them inside the oven at medium setting to keep them warm.

For the dip, combine all the ingredients in a pan on medium-low heat for five minutes till sugar and salt dissolves and mixture thickens and turns syrupy. Empty in a bowl and for a spicy punch add one teaspoon of chopped jalapeno peppers.
