Spring rolls!

March = Noodle month! Plain noodles were some of the very first things I cooked with my coffee maker. Back in the days this was a great revolution for me (=an introvert student preferably locked in my dorm room). Now I didn’t have to be social with the other students that I shared the kitchen with. Such a relief! But that was many years ago, I’ve advanced my cooking skillz so today I’ll spice things up and show you how to cook Spring rolls with your coffee maker.

Time

  • About 3 ½ hours

Ingredients

  • Spring rolls (8 small ones)
  • Spring roll wrapper
  • 50 g of rice noodles
  • 1-1 ½ dl cabbage
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ red chili
  • 15 Haricots verts
  • 3 tbsp Mango Chutney
  • 2 tbsp peanuts
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Oil
  • 1 tbsp Maizena
  • 1 tbsp water
  • Sweet Chili Sauce
  • Peanuts

Instructions

Remove the thawed spring roll wrappers from the package and place them under a damp towel.

Put the rice noodles in the can and pour the water into the brewer. Start your coffeemaker and let the noodles cook for about fifteen minutes. Meantime chop cabbage, carrot, onion, chili, peanuts and haricots verts.

Drain and stir the noodles in a bowl along with the chopped ingredients. Press down the garlic and add mango chutney. Stir and season with salt and pepper.

Heat a dash of oil in the can and add the spring roll filling. Coffee maker can cook for about an hour.

When your spring roll filling is ready, it is the time to fold them into the wrappers. Carefully cut the wrapper into four equal parts. They will fit perfectly on the coffee maker heater! Do like this:

  • 1. Place the filling in the middle of the dough.
  • 2. Take one corner and fold it over the filling.
  • 3. Keep the nosey cat away from filling.
  • 4. Fold the edges.
  • 5. Roll the spring roll.
  • 6. Keep the nosey cat away from spring roll.
  • 7. Secure by dripping some of the maizena/water mixture on the ends.

Did you get that at all? Probably not. But you will once you’re at it.

Heat the oil directly on the coffee maker heater. Fry the spring rolls (it fits about 4 spring rolls at a time) on all sides for a total of half an hour, or until they get a nice golden color. Turn off your coffee maker.

Serve with lots and lots of sweet chili sauce (if you like sweet chili sauce as much as I do).

Keep the wrappers damp.

I used rice noodles but other types of noodles will probably work just as fine.
