How to make the recipe?
  1. Sift the flour, corn flour, salt and baking powder.
  2. Make a small well in the center and pour hot water.
  3. With the help of spatula bring them together. The dough has to be slightly sticky.
  4. Add oil towards the end and mix well.
  5. Place them in a greased bowl and allow to rest for 30 mins. Cover the dough else it might get dry.
  6. Meanwhile let's make the stuffing. Take oil in a pan once heated saute ginger and garlic for 30 secs.
  7. Now add all the chopped veggies, keep tossing them on high heat.
  8. The idea is to fry and cook them om high heat so that the veggies taste crunchy. But don't burn them if you are not able to fry them on high heat then cook on low heat.
  9. Keep stirring the veggies you would see the color and texture has changed.
  10. Now add pepper powder, salt and sichuan pepper if using.
  11. Finally add vinegar and soy sauce towards the end. Mix all nicely and switch off the gas. Lastly add the boiled noodles and the bean sprout. Combine all nicely and place aside.
  12. Allow the stuffing to cool.
  13. Check the dough if it's too wet add little flour. Sprinkle flour on the surface area where you would roll them. Make small balls from the dough.
  14. With the help of roller roll them into thin oval rounds, shape doesn't matter. But roll into thin, even sheets also keep dusting flour time to time so that they don' stick. Now with the help of knife or pizza cutter slice the edges shaping into square shape.
  15. Repeat the same with the rest of dough. Heat a pan preferably a non stick pan. Just place these sheets over them until you see bubbles. Flip over other side when you see light specks. Remove them don't cook them as chapatis just a gentle cook over low-medium heat. Follow the same process with the rest of sheets.
  16. Heat a shallow or deep pan with oil.
  17. Keep the maida gummy paste ready. Spread the gummy paste towards parallel sides of the sheet. Fold them neatly as shown in the pic. Place a spoonful of stuffing towards the center.
  18. Again spread some gummy paste towards the center and the periphery of the sheet. Fold the roll towards the center.
  19. Now roll them towards the end sealing the edges properly and firmly. Repeat with the rest of sheets and place them aside.
  20. Once the oil is hot shallow fry or deep fry these rolls.
  21. Fry until crisp and golden brown from both sides. Place them on absorbent napkins.
  22. Similar fashion fry the rest of rolls.
  23. Serve your vegetable spring rolls hot with schezwan sauce. You could slice them diagonally or into squares.
Notes
1. I have used maida and wheat flour 1:1 proportion. But you could use 1 cup maida instead.
2. You could roast all the sheets apply some oil and freeze them or place them one by one over parchment sheets. Thaw them then use or making spring rolls.
3. You could use any stuffing you like with these sheets.
4. If you wish you could deep fry, shallow fry or even bake these rolls. For baking spray or brush some oil and bake at 180 degree Celcius for 12-14 mins or until they are evenly browned or baked in a preheated oven.
5. Please don't over cook the sheets for better result.
