Whenever I saw a plate of fresh Vietnamese spring rolls, I always imagined the process to be somewhat difficult but today, making these spring rolls myself proved that this was just as simple as 1-2-3 !
This was my first time making Vietnamese spring rolls and I promise you, it certainly is not going to be my last. These rolls are so easy to make and so so delicious, I just had to prepare another batch.
Here are the ingredients:
1. 1/2 packet of rice vermicelli.
2. 8-10 rice wrappers
3. 1 cup cooked shrimp – peeled and deveined
4. 1 cup boiled chicken or a thin omelette (See picture below)
5. few fresh mint leaves.
6. 1 cup shredded carrots , red cabbage, radish, 8-10 leaves lettuce,
Start by softening the rice papers. ( you can use water mist to moist the paper)
Arrange salad leaves at the bottom of the rice paper, then add the veggies as per your choice then about 4 shrimp halves or chicken.
Now the rolling part.:
Prepare the sauce:
Peanut sauce: First , heat the pan and then add 1 tsp oil. Next, add 1/2 of a Medium onion that is finely chopped. Sauté for 2-3 mins. Then, add 2tbs of Hosin sauce and mix with the onions. Next, stir it for around 2 mins. Add some water to this and boil for another 2 mins. Now, add 1tbs of peanut butter (creamy) and some crushed groundnuts. Your Sauce is now ready to be served.
Serve your homemade spring rolls with the sauce and enjoy!
