Spring rolls are the perfect way to start an authentic Thai meal, whether you’re at your favorite Thai restaurant or staying in and making them from scratch. If you’ve never had fresh spring rolls, check out Thailand Cuisine in Kihei and Kahului, HI. An order of their homemade spring rolls is just $8.95. It’s perfect for sharing between two people, but if there are any more members of your party, a single order of these tasty appetizers will disappear quickly!
Here are three tips from your favorite Thai restaurant for making fresh spring rolls at home:
- Start With High-Quality Ingredients: The freshest ingredients always make the best Thai cuisine. If you have a garden, don’t pick the vegetables for your spring rolls until the day you plan on making them. Otherwise, visit a local farmer’s market or check out the produce section of your favorite grocer the next time you go shopping, and pick sturdy-looking vegetables that are ripe or nearly ripe for your recipe.
- Use Only A Little Filling: When it comes to rolling spring rolls, you’re going to need a lot less filling than you think. A little goes a long way, so start with a small amount. If the rolls aren’t as full as you’d like them to be, you can always add more.
- Measure The Filling For Consistency: If you’re making spring rolls for a special event, you probably care about their visual appeal as much as you do about their taste. Once you find the perfect amount of filling to round off your rolls, measure it out, and use the same amount in each subsequent roll.
Thai spring rolls are perhaps one of the healthiest appetizers when it comes to Thai cuisine. Made with fresh vegetables that are packed with nutrients and encased in rice paper, these rolls are a much better alternative to their deep-fried counterparts if you’re trying to count calories.
