If you’re looking for a delicious spring roll recipe with loads of flavour then this easy step-by-step is perfect. Deep-fried spring rolls are usually dripping in fat so we’ve baked ours in the oven, to cut back on the calories without sacrificing any of the crunch. Using mango chutney might sound odd for the dipping sauce but it creates a really fab thick and sweet flavour, perfect for complimenting all the fresh veg. You can make these up ahead of time and bake just before serving for an easy but impressive Chinese starter to impress friends and family with.

  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 carrot, finely grated

    4. Beat together the egg and milk. Take one sheet of filo pastry and brush with the egg mixture. Using a sharp chopping knife, cut the pastry into 13cm (5in) strips.
    5. Place 2-3tsp of the mixture at one end, fold in 1cm (1/2in) on both sides of the strip, then roll up like a cigar. Brush with egg , place on a baking tray and dust lightly with paprika. Repeat this process until all the mixture has been used
    6. Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins until golden brown.
    7. Combine all the sauce ingredients, seasoning with salt and black pepper and place in a small bowl. Serve with mixed salad leaves and the dipping sauce.
