     Are you in search of an appetizer that strikes perfect balance between taste and health ,well then your search ends here. These spring roll turned out so tasty that once out of oven vanished  in no time .  I bought  sheets for spring rolls about a month ago for  preparing"samosa",but that day never came and the idea of it faded ,so decided to do something much lighter ,and eureka!

makes 8 rolls

onions           : 1/2 medium size
greens (can be any, i used curled mustard):1 cup
mushroom     : 1/2 cup
carrots          : 1/4 cup
sweet corn    : 1/4 cup

green peas    : 1/4 cup
soy sauce     :  2 tbs
oil                : 1 tbs + 1tbs for brushing the sheets         
Thai chili paste :can be adjusted to taste 
salt to taste 
spring rolls sheet :8 


1.chop and dice veggies except peas and corn
2.heat a pan on medium add the onions and saute for a few minutes 
3.add 1 tbs of the soy sauce ,it helps tenderize the onions add the carrots ,peas and corn saute for few more minutes 
5.add the greens,mushroom and remaining soy sauce reduce heat ,season with salt and Thai chili paste .
6.turn off the heat when greens start to shrink up.
7. divide this mixture into 8 parts and roll up in sheets
8.brush the rolls with 1 tsp oil and line up on a baking tray ,i use foil on tray to avoid cleaning up later .
9.bake in a preheated oven at 350 F ,or until golden brown,mine took about 20 min,take care and turn the rolls every 10 min or so ,to avoid burnt rolls .
10.Best serve hot with ketchup and green sauce 

One can even add meat but should make sure that the meat is either minced or shredded properly to cook through out  .Enjoy these very crispy and light rolls with steaming hot cup of tea or with any of your Favorite drink,go on give these babies a try!

 Wishing  all
