Chinese Crispy Spring Rolls
Shred vegetables to the same size and shape as bean sprouts.
Heat 2 tbsp. oil in wok and stir-fry vegetables for 1 minute. Add salt, sugar, light soy sauce, and rice wine. Stir-fry 2 minutes more; drain and cool.
To make a spring roll, cut the wrapper in half diagonally. Place 1 tbsp of veggie mixture one-third of the way down the wrapper, then turn the wrapper so the small tip of the diagonal is pointing away from you. Fold the wide edge of the wrapper over the filling and roll over one time. Fold in the sides, and roll the wrapper away from you one time more.
Brush the upper edge of the wrapper with cornstarch paste (to make cornstarch paste, simply mix 4 parts cornstarch to 5 parts cold water, and stir till dissolved). Finish rolling the springroll, keeping it a bit tight.
Sprinkle some flour on a baking sheet (to keep spring rolls from sticking), and rest the spring rolls there, flap side down, while you finish making the other rolls.
To cook, heat the oil in a wok or fryer until hot, then reduce the heat to low. Fry the spring rolls in batches, making sure not to crowd, cooking until they are golden and crispy, about 2-3 minutes.
Remove rolls from oil and drain on paper toweling. Serve hot with soy sauce, or sweet and sour and hot mustard, if desired.
