Spring Rolls are something that we all like, but how many of us even know about its history? It was a seasonal cuisine, which marked the beginning of a new season- Spring, hence the name ‘Spring Roll’.
In a mixing bowl add all purpose flour, cornflour, salt and mix it well all the dry ingredients.
Now add water to knead the dough. Gradually add water and make a soft and smooth dough. Do not pour water at once otherwise, the dough will become watery.
Lastly, add oil and knead it again for few seconds to make it smooth.
Cover the dough and keep aside for 15-20 minutes to get set.
After 20 minutes uncovered the dough and divide the dough into big lemon size balls.
To roll the balls dust the rolling surface with some dry flour and dust the balls with dry flour and roll it with the help of rolling pin.
Roll one ball into a small disc. This way we roll three balls into the small disc at a time.
Now apply oil all over the 3 rolled small discs and sprinkle some dry flour over it. This way sheets will come out easily when cooked.
Now assemble all 3 of them, for this take one rolled small disc and put it on the rolled roti. Put the oiled side upward and stick the rolled disc. This way take another rolled disc and put the oiled side down and stick both the rolled circle. You can assemble more than 3 rolled disc as per your wish.
Dust some dry flour on the platform and roll 3 of them all together into a thin disc.
Repeat the same process for rest of the dough.
Heat tawa on medium flame, once the pan gets slightly hot put rolled disc onto the pan and cook for few seconds from downwards. Flip it over and again cook for few seconds. Do not overcook the sheets otherwise, it will become dry.
Take out the cooked sheet and immediately cut the edges with the help of a knife to make a square shape. You can also use round spring roll sheets to make spring rolls, in that case, no need to cut the edges.
Find an open part, pull it and separate all the layers. Repeat the same process to make rest of the spring roll sheets.
Store it in zip lock bag for 4-5 days so that it will not become dry.
Use these sheets to prepare your favourite spring roll recipe as required.
