  4. Hi dear, you don't need to oil the pan when making the spring roll wrappers. After making the wrap, put in the filling and wet th edges with water(just as you do with the ones yu buy at the store), then fold and seal.. it will stick.

  11. Nice 1 lily. You av done very well to share this, God bless u. I'm a carterer & I'm popularly known for making exceptional dishes. I bless God for this. The thing is I don't believe my springrolls are perfect. The sheets always come out too thick. I even tried this method of urs but it came out still too thick. Although I didn't add tapioca or corn flour, I used just flour. Do u think adding tapioca would make any difference?

    1. Thanks for the compliment dear.
      I think the tapioca or corn flour makes a lot of difference.
      Even though they look irrelevant in the recipe, the corn flour adds starch to the mixture and makes the spring roll wrappers light and crispier.
      Try again and add either tapioca or corn flour and you'll see a difference.

    ReplyDelete

    1. It is a pan that is made with materials that prevent food from sticking to it. It is very common in the markets today and makes the spring roll wrappers preparation very easy , but you can use a normal pan if you don't have that :)

    1. Hi dear, don't be sad. It happens to the best of us :)
      The pan must have been very hot. ALWAYS DO A TEST, BEFORE RUBBING BATTER ON THE PAN. To do this test, heat up the pan on low heat, then dip a finger into the batter and tap the center of the Hot pan.If the small batter dries out and cracks,that means the pan is TOO HOT; but if the small batter sticks to the pan and then starts to lift up slowly by the sides, that means the pan is ready. Try again dear, you'll get it this time.

  32. I tried it and it works but i don't know what went wrong on my second attempt. the dough is not lifting from the pan . what could be responsible for this what can I do to still correct the situation . could it be that some of my mixture are not right ? please I need response on this ASAP.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi dear,When this occurs its usually due to the pan not being heated well. The pan has to be hot enough...I usually tell people that before they start, take a tiny batter and rub it inside the pan...if it leaves a smear on the pan(a tiny circle that looks like it is lifting up from the pan).. then your pan is ready.
      If you did it well before, you'll surely get it right this time.Try it out and let me know how it goes.
