Nowadays, most of the things are easily available in super markets. We just buy them, assemble them at home and enjoy! But, the gratification that we get when we make those things at home cannot be compared even a bit for things that are bought readymade. One such thing in the grocery list of most of our dear ladies are Spring Roll wrappers. Yes, even in my grocery list they always made their way couple of years back until I started making them at home. Trust me, it is very easy to make at home, only few pointers need to be kept in mind, but once you start making and get hold of it, it will become one of the easiest thing to do. And the best thing is you can make them in bulk at once and store it easily for a year, it won’t get spoilt at all. I have explained each step in detail with pictures as well as do’s and don’ts to be kept in mind while preparing the wrappers. Now, without wasting much time, let’s go through how to make best homemade spring roll wrappers.
2 cups, all-purpose flour(maida)
1 cup, cornflour
½ teaspoon salt
3 & ½ cup, water
Oil for greasing
In a large bowl, add flour, cornflour, salt and mix well
Add water and whisk well to make lump free batter
Now, take a flat non-stick griddle/pan and heat it on gas stove on very low heat.
Lightly grease the pan with oil. (I poured couple of drops of oil and spread it with tissue towel)
Now, start brushing the batter on the greased pan to make square shape as shown in the image below.
I brushed three thin coats to make wrapper. (Do not make too many coats to make a thick wrapper and make sure that wrappers are free of any pits)
Allow it to cook for few minutes, when wrapper is cooked well, it will start leaving the edges ensuring you to peel of the wrapper from the griddle or take them out using spatula. Carefully, take it off the pan and place on the tray, keep it covered with damp kitchen cloth, please do not allow the sheets to come in contact with air or the sheets will get dry.
Also, please do not increase the heat, maintain the hotness of the pan at low heat only.
Now, clean the griddle, grease it again and proceed with brushing the batter.
Repeat the process until done.
Once you are done with making all the wrappers, if you wish you can trim the edges and make it smooth square shaped wrappers.
Now, to store the wrappers in the freezer, brush each sheet with oil and stack them.
Cover with parchment paper and keep it in zip lock. Greasing of sheets will make it easier to separate after thawing. You can store the sheets in batches, this will allow you the easy access to the amount required in one go. Just thaw at room temperature and proceed with making of spring rolls.
How many sheets will this make?
Hi Brenda, this will make approx 15-17 sheets. It may be more or even less depending upon the size of the sheet you make.
