Risk It All – Rice Spring Roll

Karipap Filling

I still have a full container of karipap filling I made the other day. I wanted to finish it before it has to go straight to the garbage.. oh food to the garbage? it will never happen , insyaAllah.. but what am I going to make with it? I asked silently. Spiral karipap? samosa? steam bun? spring roll? I was too lazy for any of these but spring roll sounded great.

Off I went to my personal ‘lab’ and tried making rice spring roll. Rice spring roll? oh no!! one of food experiments that I have given up for years since my college years back in Minnesota. I made this sort of steamy -looking- Vietnamese Chinese style roll and has never turned out ‘edible’ . And now risking myself again? why not, right?

Alhamdulillah.. unexpectedly I made it! My food tester even liked it and wanted more. I somehow forgot to measure the amount exactly ( biting finger) . Thus, it would be a good reasoning to hopefully have fun making rice spring roll again.. insyaAllah. Next time, I want to try with different filling… may be the one I made while ago with my ‘sister’ in Minnesota. I love that one better!! 🙂

Let me summarize the recipe – this is an allergy free kinda roll except for those who cannot use rice. It contains rice flour, cornstarch ( can be replaced with potato starch) , tapioca starch and just water. InsyaAllah, I will post the recipe and probably step-by-step photos.

And as for the karipap filling.. alhamdulillah, half  more to go!
