Spring rolls originated in China and became the most famous snack during the Spring festivals. During the cold season, everyone had to endure preserved and canned food without much taste. Spring rolls were a curious and fun way to add again veggies in your day to day.
How to prepare spring rolls?
You eat with your eyes first. I have to admit that it took me some time before I figured out how to make a perfect roll. Sometimes I added too many ingredients, sometimes the rice paper would break (yes, it is a bit delicate). I will share with you the best practices down here. Don´t get discouraged and experiment with it! It can also couple activity. You will have fun!
1)Make sure you have rice paper. Make it soft by adding some water on top and under. But don´t use too much water because it is very fragile. You have to make a few experiments before you get the right consistency, so don´t get discouraged. [wink]
2) Add the ingredients you want to have under on the left side, while the main ingredient should be added on the right side.
3) Start from the top. Take carefully the rice paper and cover the ingredients. Do the same with the bottom part.
4) Now it is the turn of the left side. Take the rice paper and cover the ingredients. Roll everything slowly in the right direction till the end! There you! Now you can also make spring rolls!
