Fried Chilli Spring Rolls (Dynamite Rolls)

Sometime in the past few years, during the peak period of the ‘banchettos’, the Dynamite Rolls rose in popularity. People were lining up to buy these fried spring rolls. However, these are actually quite easy to make. These are actually similar to my previous post on Fried Tikoy Rolls – just with different ingredients. This recipe has been around even before their surge in popularity. I don’t know which food magazine first published the recipe (or if it has been around since forever). My mom, practical as ever, always removes the stem of the chilli peppers since these weren’t edible anyway.

Ingredients:

ground pork or beef

dash of salt and black pepper

long green chilli, sliced in half and opened

Fresh lumpia wrappers/popiah wrappers/ spring roll wrappers (large)

cheese, cut into 1/4 inch long rectangles (I used pasteurised cheese product, but you can use other cheeses such as cheddar or quickmelt)

water

oil for deep frying

 

Procedure:
