Spring Rolls

Where the heck have I been?  Well, took a little break from blogging! This doesn't mean that I stopped cooking and making new dishes. So here's another one.
Spring rolls! As popular as pizza and much so universal. We love to have spring rolls any time, with any meal. You can say that my family is a sucker for spring rolls as much as we are for pizza! And you might thing of making spring rolls as a daunting task but seriously, it isn't! It's quite the opposite. Making spring rolls is just so easy with storebought sheets, coleslaw mix(!) and a few spices of your choice. I am not kidding! Don't believe me? Just read on!

Spring Rolls

12 sheets of storebought spring roll pastry, thawed, covered with a wet kitchen towel
2 cups coleslaw mix
1/2 cup bean sprouts
1 tbsp Sriracha sauce
salt and pepper to taste
2 green onions, white stalks only, julienned
1 green chili, julienned
1 tbsp ginger, grated
oil for frying
slurry of all purpose flour and water(equal parts)

How to:
Heat oil in a wok.
Saute ginger and green chili till fragrant.
Add coleslaw mix, green onion stalks, hot sauce, salt and pepper and stir till veggies are crisp tender.
Now add bean sprouts and take the wok off the heat.
Let it cool down completely.
Take one sheet, place about 2 tbsp of filling on the sheet, about 1" from the bottom side.
Now, roll from the bottom into a cylinder.
After a couple of rolls, start tucking in the sides and then keep on rolling tightly to form a log.
Make rolls using all the sheets.
Heat the oil in a sauce pot to 375 degrees. 
Fry the rolls till golden brown and enjoy with the sweet and sour plum sauce or even better, Maggie Chili Garlic sauce!
