Spring rolls

Spring rolls makes a great appetizer and are very popular in several Asian countries especially China, Singapore and Indonesia. They are one of the most desired starter on any occassion and yes..Kids would love this snack anytime.

You can use just about anything you’d like as a filling for spring rolls. Vegetables should be either lightly steamed or sauteed and sliced into thin slivers.
