Does frying pans dream of electric pancake machines?

I Springrolls (12)usually makes small crispy Thai springrolls, but this guy at work, Long made the most fantastic huge springrolls, with his own springroll wrappers and home made chili sauce, so I started experimenting to make them like his. I never succeeded even after quite a few attempts, so Long is still the Springroll Master, but mine didnt turn out that bad even so;)

Filling:First I prepared the filling with minced meat and other stuff – Long says meat and cabbage and stuff, for my first time ( on this picture) I just used meat and bamboo and onions,┬ásalt and pepper. Since then I have been using meat, spring onions, grated carrots, finely chopped white cabbage, garlic, a drop of sesame oil ( just to flavor), salt and pepper, and it’s good. Leave the filing to cool.

Mix eggs, salt and peber, water, flour, 2/3 regular wheat flour and 1/3 rice flour ( 1 egg to 300 gr of flour approx) into a nice smooth batter, not too thick …and leave it for a while. Bake the pancakes on a pan – on only one side! I brushed the pan with a tiny bit of oil when needed and poured the batter on and baked the pancakes on one side till they look like they were just baked, not browned yet- you know when it’s ready when the edges starts to curl up a bit. Peel it off the pan and proceeded to the next one. I left them to cool completely off before rolling them, cover with some cling film so they don’t dry up.

I deepfried the ones we wanted to eat and put the rest in the freezer. Very easy to take them out, thraw them and deepfry them if we feel like some warm crispy springrolls!
