My partner requested some fresh spring rolls. These were a favourite in my family’s household, as well, but I have never like them. The reason is super weird – you can see why at the BOTTOM of this post! But only if you’re a weirdo like me!
The beauty of these rolls, is that you can make them fairly easily
and just throw in whatever you have in the fridge.
My rolls contain:
Soy-soaked tofu strips
To make the tofu, I just marinated in some soy sauce and then fried up for a few minutes.
Wrap it all together, and you can serve with a nice satay dipping sauce.
Satay sauce takes a long time to make, so try and find a nice one.
If not, the recipe follows:
recipe from justasdelish.com
100g Peanut – roasted
2 cloves Garlic
25g palm sugar
2-5 chillis, deseeded
½ tsp tamarind
soaked in 1 tablespoon of warm water to get the juice
½ Lime, juiced
½ TB Light Soy Sauce
1 cup hot water
Salt to taste
1. Roast peanuts in oven at 170C for 5mins.
2. Place peanut, garlic, palm sugar and chillis in a food processor.
Grind until everything is well mixed.
Pour into a mixing bowl.
3. Add tamarind juice, lime juice, sweet soy sauce and half cup of water.
4. Stir well and add more water to get to the consistency of peanut sauce that you like.
Spring roll confession – I can’t stand fresh rolls because the texture of the wrapper reminds me of how “the skin of a long-dead drowned person” would feel. Not sure why!
