Harumaki (Spring Rolls)/春巻き

Harumaki (spring rolls) are not a traditional Japanese dish, but are popular in Japan. My wife made harumaki for supper tonight.
Typical ingredients include shiitake mushrooms and bamboo shoots, but this time, she used cabbage, harusame noodles, and ground pork only.
春巻きは伝統的な和食ではありませんが、日本でも人気があります。今日の夕飯に妻が春巻きを作りました。
典型的な具材としてシイタケやタケノコがありますが、今回はキャベツと春雨と豚のひき肉だけを使いました。



Nothing like home-made, crispy, and very stuffed harumaki!
自家製のサクサクした、中身の詰まった春巻きほどいいものはないですよ!

pink: Thanks! For some reason, my wife likes making harumaki, but the problem is that making them is rather time-consuming, and harumaki were virtually the only dish she made for supper last night!
