How to make spring roll sheets along with step by step pictures – Thin and translucent sheets of all-purpose flour used to make spring rolls and other snacks are the spring roll sheets. These are available at the grocer’s, but the same can easily be prepared at home too. Spring roll wrappers are made in many different ways. Not only the methods of making spring roll wrappers vary but also the ingredients used for the same differ from one recipe to another. Generally, corn flour is also used along with all-purpose flour to make spring roll wrappers. Other than this, the egg is also used to make the spring roll wrappers. However, I have not used cornflour and eggs. Further, I have used the brush method of making spring roll sheets. This technique gave perfect sheets which made absolutely perfect spring rolls.
All-Purpose Flour: Although a combination of all-purpose flour and cornflour is used to make the spring roll wrappers, I tried making these with only all-purpose flour, as at times we do not have access to corn flour. And I was pretty happy with the results and therefore I am sharing the recipe here.
Water: The ratio of all-purpose flour and water is very critical for perfect spring roll sheets. I have used all-purpose flour and water in the same proportion. And it worked for me. The quantity of water depends upon the age and quality of the flour used to make the sheets. You can start off with slightly less water and increase the same gradually.
Salt: Little salt is added to season the spring roll wrappers.
Nonstick pan: I would recommend using a nonstick pan to make the spring roll wrappers. No oil is required for making the spring roll sheets.
Spring Roll Sheets is one of the basic recipes. Other basic recipes include dough for paratha, tips for perfect samosa, etc. However, if you are looking for more Indo Chinese recipes you might like momos, fried rice, and Manchurian, veg chowmein, etc.
After preparing the sheets, you can use the same directly. Or just refrigerate or freeze them. And if you plan to do the latter, make sure to place parchment paper or butter paper or grease the sheets with some oil so that they won’t stick to each other.
You can use the spring roll sheets instantly. However, if you have refrigerated or frozen the same, make sure that you bring the same to the room temperature before use. In case, of frozen spring roll sheets, make sure to take the same out 45- 60 minutes prior.
