Heat oil in a pot.

Place vegetables, garlic and ginger and seasonings into a pot and combine through and stir-fry quickly. Leave to cool.
Meanwhile, place a sheet of pastry on greaseproof paper and cut pastry into 15cm squares.
Keep pastry covered with a damp cloth.
Place one tablespoon of filling horizontally across pastry.
Now fold the front towards filling, then fold sides, then close up like a spring roll.
Smear the edge with a little flour paste to seal.
Keep covered with a damp cloth until all spring rolls have been completed.
Fry in moderately warm oil for a few minutes till golden.
Serve hot with soya sauce or green chutney.

For a healthy alternative: Use three sheets of phyllo pastry (as per method above) to make spring rolls and fill till completed. Bake in oven for 10mins.

NB: Both pastry spring rolls are suitable for freezing.
