Expert tips

To demo the seasoning of the filling, take a small spoonful & cook it in a frying pan (or microwave it) until fully cooked. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your preference.

Don"t be tempted to overfill the spring rolls or they may explode during frying.

Use a high-smoke point vegetable oil such as peanut oil or grapeseed oil for best frying results. (Don"t use olive oil).

Every once in a while, địa chỉ new frying oil lớn replenish & ensure it comes back up lớn frying temperature before resuming frying.

If you don"t have a thermometer, use a wooden or bamboo chopstick và stick it in the hot oil -- if little bubbles appear, the oil is hot enough.

Be sure to lớn fry in batches & do not overcrowd the pot, which can lower the overall frying temperature.

Ensure your filling isn"t too wet -- if you wrap the rolls và liquid seeps out, it"s too wet. Add additional cornstarch khổng lồ the filling mixture & proceed.

If you prefer a drier filling, you can use the same method of salting the jicama và taro along with the cabbage & carrot, which will draw out excess moisture -- but personally, I thought the moisture level was just fine leaving the jicama và taro as is.
