Imagine this: Bite down on a freshly-friend, wonderfully crisp spring roll with a juicy vegetable and mushroom filling. Sounds good? Are you salivating?

Us too – so we’ve got a flaky, juicy, and easy spring roll tutorial for you right here. Spring rolls are a very popular appetizer at restaurants, but they can cost quite a bit, considering the relatively simple ingredients that go into making them. Why not make your own at a fraction of the cost? The best part is that, you can add anything you want into these delicious little bites. This recipe is more of the classic vegetarian variant, but you can absolutely add your own.

These are some of our favourite additions:

  • Turnip, for that extra crunch
  • Minced meat (if you want it more filling)

And let’s not forget to pair these with your favourite sauce. We say, go for a Thai sweet chili.


This recipe makes 12 spring rolls.

  • 50 g Garlic, chopped
  • 50 g Shallots (small red onions), chopped
  • 90 g Carrot
  • 110 g Leeks
  • 250 g Bok Choy
  • 20 g Shiitake Mushrooms, soaked in water for 20 mins, drained and sliced
  • 4 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
  • 12 pcs Spring Roll Skin (This is also known as Spring Roll Wrappers at your local supermarket!)
  • 1 Egg Yolk, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • White Pepper, to taste
  • Sesame Oil, to taste



  1. Using Kenwood Food Processor with the julienne disc attachment, julienne carrots, leeks and bok choy together.
  2. In a pan on medium-high heat, heat vegetable oil. Sauté garlic and shallots until fragrant. Add in your thinly sliced vegetables and fry for 2 to 3 minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
  3. Add shiitake mushrooms and fry for another 2 to 3 minutes. Add oyster sauce and season to taste with salt, white pepper and sesame oil. Remove from heat to cool.
  4. On your flat tabletop, place spring roll skin in a diamond shape. Add the cooled filling in centre. It’s important for the filling to cool to a lukewarm temperature, otherwise your spring rolls might burst open! We suggest spreading it out on a tray and cooling it in the fridge.
  5. Start by folding both sides over the filling, then fold the edge clothes to you over the filling and roll it away from you to form a nice little package.
  6. Seal spring roll by brushing egg yolk on the sides of the skin. Repeat with remaining skin and filling.
  7. In a pot of hot oil, deep fry spring rolls for 4 to 5 minutes until golden brown. Drain excess oil on a paper towel lined plate. Serve hot with your favourite sauce on the side!

Everyone’s Making This: Basque Burnt Cheesecake

Classic cheesecake as we know it has a firm, cheese top with a press-in cookie base. But this basque – or sometimes known as burnt – cheesecake is a crust-less cheesecake, and its filling tastes like a cross between the American cheesecake and the Japanese souffle-type of cheesecake. You will notice that basque or burnt cheesecake recipes generally call for less flour – don’t be alarmed! Less flour means less structure, which is what we’re trying to achieve to get …
