Bec’s Chicken and Prawn Spring roll

Bec's Spring Rolls |

Have you ever made a Spring Roll at home? They’re easy and this recipe is delicious.

I chop everything by hand for this recipe.  I like to chop when I have the time, but you could just blitz everything in batches then mix.  Just don’t over-blitz, or you’ll find you have firm clumps in your spring rolls and that’s not so nice.

Spring Rolls


  • 1 handful 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 green prawns peeled, deveined and chopped into very small bits
  • 2 Chicken thigh fillets no skin and tendons removed and chopped into very small bits
  • 1 cup carrot grated loosely packed
  • 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


  • 1 pack of spring roll wrappers (you can get these at some supermarkets these days or from Asian food outlets)
  • 1 heaped tsp rice flour (tapioca or corn flour mixed with a little water to use as glue)
  1. Mix everything in a bowl, (except the wrappers and flour), till very well combined.

  2. Using my photo’s as a guide do not overfill.

  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 it 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.


Ta Da!  Easy hey?
