Kids In The Kitchen: Spring Roll With Minced Pork and Prawn

Fun Fun Fun
I like to cultivate the love for cooking for my kids. Preparing their own meals help them to eat better and is also a time for me to bond with them. 

Today I am going to share how I prepare the easy Spring Roll With Minced Pork and Prawn. 

You can tweak the fillings to your like. The fun part about this dish is that the children can roll the beancurd skin into any shape they want. I do not like to be too strict with the children because it spoils their fun.

I could also hide the greens which I want my children to eat in the fillings.

The seasoning for the minced pork is the same as that in the minced pork noodles with baby spinach.

Tips for cooking:
  1. Try out different greens such as spinach or cabbage for variety.
  2. For chopping the water chestnuts and carrots, a grater or grinder could be helpful.
  3. As necessary, add salt to the prawns if you want to adjust the taste to suit adults better.
  4. If you do not finish using up the egg, fry the left over as a side dish.

Have fun with your cooking!
