FAUX 'McD' APPLE HOT POCKETS
My hubby who gave this name to my new recipe. Actually, this recipe was found when I cleaned my refrigerator. I want to use all the ingredients that I had before I go to get our weekly groceries, so when I saw a pack of spring roll's wrapper laid alone in the freezer I told myself that I should use this wrapper before the wrapper getting hard and can not be use anymore. Then, I looked into my kitchen top drawer and there they are 3 apples are sitting nicely. Luckily the weather are super cold now so it made those fruits stay fresh.
This is a very very easy recipe, no fancy ingredients needed to make this faux hot pockets and it didn't take long time to prepare it. So, let's give a try ;)
Apple Hot Pockets
1/2 package of spring roll's wrapper
3 medium apples, peeled and diced
1 cup of sugar
200 ml water
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsps tapioca starch solution
1 liter of vegetable oil
Boil water and sugar in a saucepan over high heat until boiling and the sugar is dissolved. Add in apples and cinnamon, stir it well. Turn down the heat into medium heat. Cover the saucepan and keep stir it occasionally.
Once the apples are tender and the sauce are reduce to 1/3, add in tapioca solution. Keep stir it until the sauce are thick.
Cool it down before use.
Finisihing: lay one sheet of spring roll's wrapper on a flat surface. Scoope 1 spoonful apple mixture and put on the wrapper. Wrap it as you wrap spring rolls. Do it again until the wrappers and apple mixtures are finished.
Frying: heat the oil in a big frying pan over high heat. Once the oil is hot, fry the apple pockets until brown and crisp. Serve it immediately.
Also, I made banana hot pockets since we had 'the forgotten' small-fingersize banana ;)
