I chopped everything by hand for this recipe. I have actually learned to like chopping, when I have the time, but you could just blitz everything in batches then mix together.
What went in them.
1 Vermicelli noodles (Soak these for at least an hour in cold water then cut them into small lengths around 2 – 3 cm and drain very well)
1 handful of green prawns peeled and deveined and chopped into very small bits
1 full Maryland chicken fillet no skin tendons removed and chopped into very small bits
1 whole carrot grated
1 Cup of very finely shredded wombok or cabbage of some sort.
1 Hand full of coriander chopped fine
1 spring onion chopped fine
1 onion chopped very fine
1 – 2 tsp of grated palm sugar
pinch of pepper
Splash of Soy Sauce
What went on the outside of them
1 pack of spring wrappers
1 heaped tsp rice flour, tapioca or corn flour mixed with a little water to use as glue
What I did
1 Mix everything together into a bowl except wrappers and flour, till very well combined.
2 Using my photo’s as a guide do not over fill.
3 Get your oil hot. You can test with a piece of wrapper. When you drop the wrapper in the oil it will fizz and bubble like crazy when ready. I used a deep, frypan and did about 12 at a time. Easy
4 Take one wrapper and set down in front of you, showing a diamond rather than a square.
5 Add a small amount of mix closest to you, then roll into the centre
6 Tuck in the sides and paint a little glue (flour/water mix) on the tip of the diamond and continue to roll.
Voila. For those who know me personally I am trying to learn French. Gosh that is one of the words I remember. Dam I know that before the lessons. 😉
