Spring rolls (with vegetables) 春卷, Chinese cooking

Spring rolls

I love the spring rolls; and as always, you can say, I prefer prepararmeli on my own!

Already forty years ago, in Milan, I found myself occasionally with a friend, as a passionate me of cooking and oriental preparations and, for a day, we devoted ourselves to the preparation of spring rolls!

And we say that the time was not an easy ... first of all there were no handy Chinese grocery stores and so the sheets for spring rolls, available anywhere today, we were preparing the on our behalf (vn); to a hundred at a time.
And the filling was prepared in adequate quantity.

In any case the spring rolls are perhaps theappetizer China's best known. And like all the widespread preparations, there are many kinds, beginning with different stuffed with meat or vegetables.

I often prepare this vegetarian version made from soybeans, much appreciated by my guests; a filling very different from what is usually found in Chinese restaurants.

Whisk an egg salting just an idea with salt and soy sauce.
Distribute it very well in a large frying pan, already brushed with a little oil, reduce heat and cook a couple of minutes because it congeals.

Transfer it to a cutting board and just roll it up and cut into strips.

Slice the vegetables into thin strips (or as they write masters to julienne) Including Chinese mushrooms soaked and stem private.
Fry in a wok, at fairly high heat, the onion with the pepper and bamboo.
Then add the mushrooms.

Stirring constantly add the egg strips, carrot and, for the past, the bean sprouts.
Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with soy sauce and spent a minute remove from heat and keep aside to cool.

Open the pack of sheets to rolls and keep them covered with a damp cloth. Take the first sheet, covering again the rest with the cloth, and place it on another wet cloth.
Rest a little 'now cold filling in a couple of centimeters from the top edge of the sheet, placing it in a rather elongated.
Lift the upper end of the dough and fold to cover the filling.

Now fold the side edges, first one and then the other to enclose the dell'involtino sides; and conclude by rolling on itself on the rest of the pastry.
Repeat until all the filling and the pastry!

Fry the rolls, a few at a time, in hot oil but not hot, dipped from about half a minute after turning them.
CAUTION: better to avoid the deep fryer immersion: tend to heat up too quickly swelled to bursting.

Gradually the rolls are ready to put them to drain on a wire rack or on a kitchen paper to remove any excess oil.
serve them hot with a soya sauce and, for those who like a agropiccante sauce
