Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are a rolled-stuffed wrapper filled with minced vegetables, fish, and meats. Through the years spring rolls and egg rolls have become synonymous but they are two distinctly different dishes. Spring rolls are wrapped in a thin light wrapper made of rice flour and sometimes tapioca or wheat flour and served fresh. Egg rolls are made with a thicker pastry wrapper and typically fried. There are some steamed and baked versions as well.

Originally an invention of the Chinese, Spring Rolls "chun juan" were made from the early spring vegetable crop, wrapped in thin crepe-like sheets and fried. This basic dish has been since adapted by other Asian and Western cultures including Thailand, Japan and Vietnam.
