This is one of my all time favorites. Most of the times when Iorder it in any indian hotel I am disappointed with the spring rolls that get served as they would either be filled with bean sprouts, or stuffing is not just working for me or most of the times the spring rolls are very very oily!!!
A couple of days back my boss was telling how he made menasina bajji at home using soda water and how much his kids loved it... and best part being the bhajji was not at all oily...
So using the same principle here are my spring rolls
Maida - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tsp
For the stuffing
Noodles - 1 cup
Chopped vegetables - 1 cup (I used corn, capcisum, potatos, fresh peas and onion)
Oregano - 1 tsp
Pepper crushed -1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli sauce - 1 tbsp
Oil - 1 tsp
For closing the spring roll
1 tbsp corn flour mixed with 2 tbsp water
Mix the Maida, oil, salt and soda water to make a dough (consistency should be that of poori dough)
I dumped everything in a the processor and ran for 10 mins
Take the dough and keep covered
Cook the noodles as per instruction
In the mean time, Heat Oil in the pan
Add the potato and fry till almost cooked
Add the capcicum, onion, peas and corn and fry on medium flame for 2 - 3 mins
Add in the masala, salt and the sauce
Mix well. Add in the cooked noodles and cook covered on low flame for 5 mins
Take the dougn and make lemon sized balls
Roll the dough into a circle
Place the noodle stuffing and roll into the spring roll as shown below
Fold 2 on top of the stuffing
Cover the stuffing and the folds 1 & 2 with 3 and start rolling
wet the edges of the circle with cornflour mixture and close the spring roll
Fry in oil. Make sure that the oil is not very hot and you are frying in medium to high flame.
Serve hot with Sauce
Finally I had a visitor in the garden behind my house giving me beady eyes...
