Try’em throughout Asia
These fried favorites originate from China as part of the traditional Dim Sum roster of “little dishes.” So spring rolls have a lengthy history. Look for variant renditions throughout Asia and Southeast Asia. Historically, this food item is a staple during China’s annual Spring Festival, which is how they garnered their name. The main components include a thin wrap, usually made from rice flour, that’s stuffed with meat or seafood. Then the stuffed rolls are traditionally deep fried or pan-fried to a golden-brown crisp. The weight of the wrap also varies from one region to another. The Mixed Stew likes to serve these with a sweet chili dipping sauce.
