Heat oil in a pan, fry ginger garlic paste, green chillies and spring onion for a minute.
Add all the vegetables and cook uncovered for 3-4 minutes, stirring them frequently. The texture should be crunchy and not soft hence dont cover the pan while cooking.
When its all done, add soy sauce and vinegar and seasoning. Mix well and now add Egg Noodles, give a gentle stir and turn off the flame.
Keep aside this stuffing till gets at room temperature, cold enough to be handled by bare hands.
Once its OK to touch, heat the oil in a wok and keep it ready for frying
While the oil is getting hot, fill in the spring roll sheets with the stuffing, fold it well and keep in a plate
Deep fry each roll on a medium flame, careful not to burn them, serve immediately
I served these Spring rolls with Thai Peanut Sauce, sweet chili sauce and Mint sauce will also go well with this Chinese snack.
When chopping the vegetables, keep the size even and lengthwise. This will help in keeping the right texture and even cooking
If folding the wrappers seems too difficult a task, simply fold the sheets in a Samosa shape for Chinese Samosas
I have chosen the cheats way and used ready made frozen sheets for the snack, you may go ahead and prepare the cover from scratch. The recipe is available on Nivedita's blog here.
Selection of vegetables totally depends on your choice, I havent stuffed in sweet corn. You may omit Egg noodles as well if you want, but I like the presence since it goes well with the crunch of the outer shell.
