Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Vitenamese Spring Roll

Vietnamese spring rolls is a Vietnamese dish. This is a vegetarian version of the spring roll made with rice paper served with a dipping sauce. Vietnamese spring rolls are a healthy alternative to the deep-fried spring rolls. We once tried it in an Asian restaurant and I really want to try it at home. I didn’t find all the ingredients at one go and it was pending for a long time. This past weekend I got to try my hands on this spring roll and it came out so well. I tried to pair it with a dipping sauce. I actually tried replicating what we get at the restaurant and the dipping sauce taste was almost the same as we eat it the Asian restaurants. So here is my recipe for Spring rolls and Dipping sauce.

Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins | Makes: 8 Spring rolls

Ingredients

Carrots – 1 julienne
Mini Cucumber – 2 julienne
Purple Cabbage – 1/4 cup shredded
Yellow Sweet Peppers – 6 julienne
Coriander leaves – 1 tbsp chopped
Mint leaves – 1 tbsp chopped
Rice paper sheets – 8
Cooked Rice noodles/vermicelli – 100 g
Water – as needed

Method

  1. Julienne the vegetables and keep aside.
  2. Cook the rice noodles/vermicelli as per the instruction on the package. I soaked my noodles in boiling water for 8 mins.
  3. In a deep wide bowl/plate take some water to soak the rice paper sheets. Follow the instructions of the package. I soaked for 15 seconds for the sheets to become transparent and sticky.
  4. Carefully transfer the sheet to wooden chopping board or a plate and start layering the vegetables and noodles (your choice of order).
  5. Once done, fold the sides and start rolling it carefully. The spring rolls are ready to be served with a dipping sauce.

Note

  1. The rice paper sheets get extremely sticky and so you have to be careful transferring the sheets, layering and rolling it. Else it may tear and the filling might come out.
  2. You can use any vegetables of your choice.
  3. You can also fresh basil leaves along with coriander and mint leaves.
  4. You can add salt and pepper or even the dipping sauce while layering the vegetables. This is completely optional.
