At times when you run out of ideas to come up with a new dish. That’s when I dig into the locker I have in my head, where I store ideas that pop up magically at weird times. This idea was kept undisturbed for a very long time. So put it to use having my boy home for his holidays who loves his prawns any ways. I had my doubts about the Spring roll sheets coming apart when deep frying as I didn’t use any paste to stick them. So tried with one and the prawn when cooked gets bigger which helps the spring roll sheet to hold it with out going apart. A rocking dish where myself and my foodie boy gobbled up most of the fatty culprit snack. It’s pointless to resist such food with nuances of texture and flavor. This simple yet impressive dish sure is a must try for all home ministers around the world..
