6spring roll wrapperspackage might read “egg roll wrappers”
1cupeach carrot onion, bell pepper, jalapeno pepper – all julienned
⅓cupfresh basil leaveschopped or whole
3tablespoonscornstarch mixed with equal part cold water
oil for frying
Place spring roll wrappers on a work surface. Place equal amounts of cooked meat on the center of each in a rectangle. Arrange equal amounts of julienned carrot, onion, bell pepper and jalapeno pepper on top of the meat.
Using a finger or brush, “paint” the outside edges of each wrapper with the cornstarch mixture. Fold in the outside edges, pressing down to seal with the cornstarch “glue”. Roll firmly like a burrito while sealing all edges.
Place in 350 to 360 degree oil and fry until golden brown.
I like to use this recipe with ground thigh meat, but ground wild turkey breasts work well, too.
