Make sure you defrost your spring roll pastry ahead of time according to instructions on packet.Peel, wash and dice potatoes and carrots and place them in a microwave steamer and place in microwave on high for 8 minutes. If you do not have a steamer, place them in a freezer bag in microwave. Take care not to burn your hands when you get it out. Rinse frozen broad-beans and cover with warm water until soft. This should be about 5 minutes, drain and put aside.

Put oil in frying pan, add the spices and lightly fry. Then add the diced coriander and shallots. stir for a minute then add potatoes and carrots and stir until well coated with spices, add broad-beans. Stir gently and cook for a couple of more minutes then turn heat off.

Place one sheet of pastry on a flat work surface area, and cover the rest with a dampened tea-towel so they don’t dry up. Dampen the sides of the sheet with water using a brush. Place two table-spoons of filling on top as per photo below. Cover the filling with the pastry from sides and then from top and roll until it resembles a flat rectangle. place aside and continue until all filling is used.

Place 1 tea-spoon of grape-seed oil in fry pan and pan-fry a few at a time on medium heat until golden on one side then flip and cook on the other side. Remove and set aside and continue until all rolls are pan-fried, adding a drizzle of oil each time you add a new batch.
