[Air Fryer Series] Spring Rolls

Spring rolls, also known as “Chun Juan,春卷” in Chinese, are eaten during the Chinese New Year as a symbol of wealth and prosperity. The auspicious saying for eating spring rolls is “Huang Jin Wan Liang, 黄金万两”, which translates to a ton of gold. The golden cylindrical-shaped rolls represent gold bars which symbolises wealth.
 
In Singapore, you can find this delicacy at dimsum stores filled with mostly turnip and carrots. In this version of our spring roll, we used shrimps, minced pork as well as mushrooms!
 
What’s better than enjoying this savoury snack without worrying for an oily kitchen! Hoho this Air Fryer version definitely hits that sweet spot.
 
From The Meatmen, wishing everybody an Advanced Happy Chinese New Year! 🙂
