We have a serious issue here. It is out of control. If my husband isn't eating Chinese out, he is requesting I make it at home. WHEN WILL THE MADNESS STOP?!!? I love it too but can't we just have spaghetti again?!!?
So I decided to make spring rolls. Who doesn't love spring rolls? Well, I do and I wanted to create the magic at home! I am convinced I can invent a way to fry stuff without oil. I will get back to you on it.....
Here is what you will need for my version of the spring roll folks...
1/2 lbs ground chicken
2 green onions, minced
1/4 cup carrots, grated
1 cup bok choy, shredded
1/4 tsp white pepper (or black)
1 clove of garlic, grated
1/8 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp soy sauce
Spring roll wrappers
peanut oil for frying
Brown your chicken, season with salt pepper, garlic salt, and ginger. I felt like I needed both garlic and regular salt, yes, I know, cut one out if you choose or use garlic powder instead. When it is done transfer to a bowl, you will add the bok choy, carrots, soy sauce and green onions. Combine thoroughly. Open your spring roll wrappers and keep them covered with a damp paper towel so they don't dry out. Here is what you do next!
Here they are, I got 7 spring rolls but I would just shoot for 6 next time!
Heat 2-3 cups of peanut oil to 350 degrees. Fry approximate 2 minutes on each side or until they have reached the color you want. Remember everything inside is already cooked!
