How to make My Curried Vegetables Roll

 curried vegetable rolls for their lunch boxes

Dear Diary,
 I left out sardines because the girls didn't want anything to do with fish.

For fish lovers like me, crushing and adding sardines to the chopped vegetables  is great!
One thing I haven't told you diary, is that I can do a lot of things
 in my kitchen with just cabbage, carrots and onion.

 Do you know, just adding salad dressing to these vegetables
will create my simple cole slaw?
Adding them to my indomie noodles will give me my
curried vegetable indomie noodles. You see! That is why I make sure
 that these are always available in the refrigerator.
They provide quick fixes in my kitchen almost every day.
 grated carrots, chopped cabbage, chopped onion, this was before adding curry

 rolling flour for my curried vegetable rolls
 vegetables in oil before turning on the heat

  1. flour
  2. milk
  3. sugar
  4. salt
  5. cabbage
  6. carrots
  7. onion
  8. knorr or maggi seasoning
  9. vegetable oil

 cabbage overpowers carrots here, well, depends on what is available at the time

  • I stir fried the chopped vegetables in oil with some curry and seasoning
  • The flour is mixed with a drop of vegetable oil, milk, sugar and a pinch of salt to tone down the sugar. These are added to taste, 'cos I actually tasted some flour with the tip of my tongue.
  • It is rolled into tiny  flat circle shapes, the stir fried vegetables are dropped in the circles and gradually folded up, with the ends pressed down to prevent frying oil from seeping in
  • The folded rolls are then fried till brown
  • The oil automatically dries up as soon as the rolls are brought out of the pan.

I actually enjoyed this along with the kids because it is yummy, 
and I made sure that the sugar wasn't much.

 chopped cabbage and onion, no carrots, lol!
 no carrots, making do with what is available
 fried rolls waiting to be packed
This is very easy to make, and it doesn't take much time!
Lovers of fish rolls will really enjoy this vegetable rolls. Just a drop of oil in the flour before mixing and rolling. Adding too much oil makes them soft and unlikable.

Anyway diary, I am neither a chef nor a food expert, just trying to share my little cooking skills with other ladies and even men! Trying to show that cooking doesn't have to be that serious.

  5. Hi weldone on d various dishes u've always prepared.I definitely wil try dem out esp now dat am weaning my 2year old son.pls wat is d right measured amount of ingredients I need 2 prepare my rolls?thank u.

    1. Thanks! I am a very lazy woman when it comes to measurement. You won't believe that I bake my cakes without measurements. Lol!
      I just weigh things out with my eyes and graaa I'm cooking. What helps me is the fact that I always check and add what is not enough.

      For this vegetable rolls here, I used:
      2 cups of flour
      1 dessert spoonful of milk
      1/2 a dessert spoonful of sugar
      A pinch of salt
      For the vegetables, I made so much, used only as much as I wanted on each roll, and stored some in the fridge. I hope this helps?
