Vegetable Spring Rolls

Ingredients
 
Dough - 250gms flour {Maida}
1 cup Oil
1 cup flour for dusting
Water
Filling
100 gms Spring Onions
100 gms Beans
100 gms Carrot
100 gms Capsicum
100 gms Peas( optional)
1 table spoon Ajinomoto
1 tsp Pepper powder
2 Green chilli (optional)
1 table spoon oil
Salt to taste

Method

Sieve the flour and add water to make a semi hard dough, and cover it with a cloth and keep it aside for some time. Make 30 equal portions out of the dough.

To make the filling - First of all cut all the vegetables thin and length wise. Heat oil in a pan and add the onions to fry till pink and then add the vegetables, Ajinomoto, salt and pepper and fry till the water is dry. Keep it aside till cool.
 
Flour paste - Mix 1 cup Maida with water to make a thick paste for the sticking the rolls.
 
For the wrappers - Spring roll wrappers are available ready in market but for those who would like to make them at home, first of all take a portion of dough on a floured surface and flatten each with a rolling pin into a circle approx 9 inch diameter. Apply some oil allover, sprinkle flour allover and keep another circle on top. Make 5 at a time one after the other. Heat Tava (hot plate) and just heat the flour circle (Don't fully cook) on both the sides and you will see the flour circles separate. Repeat the process to make into 30 wrappers.
 
For the rolls
 
Take a wrapper and arrange it so that it faces you and place a spoonful of the filling just below the centre, then fold up the bottom part over the filling. Then fold on each side and then roll up tightly with the help of flour paste and seal. Repeat until all the filling has been used. Half fill a Kadai with oil and deep fry the rolls for 3-4 minutes until golden till crisp in slow flame. Drain in kitchen paper and serve hot with Chilli sauce.
