Vegetable Spring Rolls Recipe (Fried & So Crispy)

A Chinese spring roll comes down to the type of roll that it is. A garden spring roll, let’s say, will be filled with a variety of fresh veggies such as carrots, bamboo shoots, fresh bell pepper, & cabbage.

More varieties of savory spring rolls tend to be filled with meat or chicken with vegetables – most likely pork, chicken, or shrimp. 

In this recipe I made the most popular and basic spring roll dish which is the vegetarian spring roll that you see in some Asian restaurants.. 

They are delicious, juicy and crispy. Fry them until golden (about 7 to 10 minutes for that extra crispiness).
