  • 1 onion
  • 1 large carrot

Method

Thinly slice the onion and carrot. Crush the garlic and peel and grate the ginger.

Stir fry the vegetables adding the soy sauce and lemon juice to season. Leave to cool.

Dip one pancake wrapper in a bowl of water then lay out onto a worktop.

Place a large spoonful of the filling onto the centre of a pancake. Fold over one edge of the pancake then the two sides, brush the edges with the cornflour mix then roll up the pancake. The cornflour mix will seal the spring roll.

Deep fry at 180°c / 350°f for five minutes.
