Story Behind this Recipe

Great for when you need another dish, or to pack in your bento lunch boxes. It's convenient to use frozen pre-made spring rolls, but I wanted to eat ones stuffed with lots of ingredients, just like the ones I ate ages ago. So I made these from scratch. They're great freshly fried, and also cooled.
