Hello everyone! I'm back with another Asian recipe to share to you. From the title of this post, you'd know that this dish is none other than the infamous spring rolls. Spring rolls are very popular in East Asia and Southeast Asia. Depending on which country you come from, this dish has several variations. From the name, the fillings, type of wrapper and the cooking method, it all largely depends on the region's culture.

It is believed that spring rolls may have originated from China. It was considered a seasonal dish back then, mainly consumed during spring (hence the name). It started as a pancake with fillings made from the season's spring vegetables as a welcome change from the preserved foods during the long winter months. And since then, it has become a popular snack across Asia.

*I used sweet chili sauce for the dip.
I believe  that cooking is a personal experience. I personally do not measure the ingredients most of the time and just rely on my taste when adding flavors. Therefore, you can follow these steps or you can be creative and use  ingredients you want.
