Let’s check out this super easy recipe!

First, let’s get all the ingredients together. You will need:

  • 4 ounces of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 pint of warm water
  • 7 ounces of bean sprouts
  • 4 ounces of chicken
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of spring onion, minced
  • 2 small carrots, chopped
  • Salt
  • Dipping sauce, such as fish sauce or soy sauce

You can use any kind of ingredients you want for your filling. Some people swap out the chicken for pork, others use celery instead of carrots, or leave out the garlic altogether.

Adjust your filling mixture as you see fit. Once you are ready, it’s time to start the recipe!

First, let’s make the spring roll pastry mixture. Add your warm water, flour, and egg together in a bowl. You can also add a pinch of salt for extra flavor.

Mix the pastry up and leave to stand while you start assembling your filling.

Make sure your bean sprouts, chicken, garlix, spring onion, and carrots are all finely sliced and diced. In a pan over a medium heat, stir fry your chicken until it is cooked.

Drain off any excess oil before adding the rest of your filling ingredients. Mix and put aside while you make your spring roll pastry.

In another pan over a low medium heat, spread a little bit of vegetable oil and pour a thin layer of your spring roll batter and fry. Do not turn the roll over – once it’s cooked, transfer to another plate.

Once all of your spring roll wrappers have been made, take your filling mixture and divide it between your spring roll wrappers. Fill the middle of each wrapper with some filling mixture

Then, it’s time to get rolling. Fold the bottom of the wrapper up and the sides over the filling. Use a paste of flour and water from a small bowl to help seal the spring roll shut.

Then, deep fry your spring rolls for 10 minutes until they are crispy and golden brown.

Now your spring rolls are ready to eat, you can serve them as a side dish with some dipping sauce.

Some popular dipping sauce to try include sour sauce, fish sauce, or classic sweet and sour sauce. Whatever dip you choose, your spring rolls are sure to taste amazing!
