We start sifting the flour and cornstarch in a bowl, then we insert two large pinches of salt and the flush water, moving until you have a batter without clots.
Let the mixture stand for at least half an hour reached. In the meantime, we start to prepare the filling: we wash the celery scanting it of the filaments; we cut it into very fine strips and about 6 cm long.
We do the same with the onions and carrots, we cut the cabbage into strips and incise the pork slices into very small cubes.
In a wok we heat a tablespoon peanut oil, insert the pig, and let cook for few minutes, add the carrots, celery, and onions. We dress with soy sauce and cook everything for a few minutes until the vegetables will be suitable for eating, but still fairly crunchy. Finally we combine the bean sprouts and cabbage into strips, which will jump only a few seconds and let the filling cool.
Let it fresh a non-stick pan for crepes, oil it with a little oil and dispense a ladle of batter, making sure to mix before using it. So prepare crepes as thin as possible and a diameter of about 18 cm, the crepes will be almost transparent. When we finish all the batter we start the preparation of the rolls.
We place a spoonful of filling in the lower half of each sheet, cover with the dough stuffing, fall back later on the left and right sides toward the middle rolling from bottom to top.
We seal the roll with a brush dipped in water and flour (1 tablespoon + 1 tablespoon) and proceed like this with all the crepes, until finishing the filling.
We heat a lot of peanut oil in wok and when it has reached a very high temperature, we will enjoy the rolls, making sure to brown them on both sides. When the spring rolls are golden brown, we extract them from the oil and we rest them on paper towels.
Once dry, we can serve them hot spring rolls accompanied with soy sauce or sweet and sour sauce.





I am not comfortable with cooking well, I can cook and also pretty good, tell me the witness, but it is not one of the arts that I like better. However, every so often I experience something new. And after watching the series I am going to present, I got an irresistible push for to spring rolls *. But if you are lazy and do not want to start cooking, take the number of the closer takeaway and order a lot of Chinese food, tidy the living room and get ready to drag you by Annalise Keating and her students, in one of the most intriguing TV series in recent years: How to get away with murder.


Born from the (perverse) mind of Shonda Rhimes, a famous serial killer, I mean screenwriter and producer of the Greys’ Anatomy, Private Practice and Scandal, and her brilliant collegue Peter Nowalk, it could only be a matchless success and a perfect fit of the dramas and mysteries.tumblr_inline_o4lksizlyi1rgo7l5_500

She is one of the few authors to have apposite fans and a whole day of her show on ABC[1], and after the affirmative triplet she is considered a bit the King Midas of the TV.


What immediately struck me was the assemblage of the scenes! Flashback and flashforward succeeding, stimulating curiosity, keeping alive the attention. Moreover, the characters are well designed, each of them with its share of secrets. But what really makes this must-see show is the protagonist, a masterful Viola Davis[2] that manages to be at once our heroine and the villain of this story.

The basic idea is that “made the law find the escape”, a good lawyer manipulates the truth and Annalise Keating is a great lawyer: severe yet fragile, she is a great character, wonderfully made by the Davis who has earned every conferred tribute .



And then it encourages appetite. The five students and two assistants of Keating seem to take up residence in her living room, and then because of takeaway food, especially the Chinese, in those charming cartoons that you only see in the show. No seriously, why do not they use them when we order Chinese food ??? Strictly eaten with chopsticks, you cannot miss that smell of fried which remains in the air for weeks, for a truly perfect view of the TV series that made the murder a main course!

As side dish we have dishonesty and for dessert sensual scenes for every taste.


So you can not but be satisfied with this menu.


So what are you waiting for, everyone at the table ... Murder is served.
