Chinese Veg Spring Roll recipe


veg spring rollMy 77th Recipe, “Veg Spring Roll”, a Chinese New Year special. Wishing everyone who are celebrating, a Happy and prosperous New Year.

When I came to know that today is Chinese New Year, as usual I wanted to post a dish which goes with the theme. When I did some research on internet, I came to know some interesting facts which I never knew earlier.

The first day of Chinese New Year usually falls between January 21 and February 20. And looks like it is a tradition to eat certain dishes during the New Year. Especially on the New Year’s eve, Lucky Food is served, which is believed to bring good luck for the coming year. Though there are many Lucky Foods, the one which I am very familiar with and have eaten many times is this Spring Roll.

SONY DSCVeg Spring Roll is one appetizer I love to eat whenever I visit an Asian restaurant for dinner. But until today, I never knew that such a simple dish would have a huge significance. Since the Spring Rolls looks like bar of gold, the lucky saying for eating spring roll on New Year’s Eve is 黄金万两 (hwung-jin wan-lyang/) – ‘A ton of gold’ – a wish for prosperity. Even interesting to know was that the New Year is also known as Spring Festival and since the spring rolls are usually eaten during the Spring Festival in China, hence their name.

SONY DSCTaking just the inspiration from the Chinese cuisine, I adapted the taste of the spring roll fillings to suite my taste buds. They turned out super crispy at the outside and juicy n delicious in the inside. Perfect with a cup of Hot chai or as an appetizer with Asian dipping sauce 🙂 Refer to my video here on
