This is my favorite snack of all times. It's a little bit time consuming to make, but I usually make a big batch and freeze them. They can be deep-fried frozen. Serve them with spring roll sauce or sweet chile sauce and Thai ajad, pickled cucumber salad.

Instructions Checklist
  • Cover mung bean noodles with warm water and soak until soft, about 30 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

  • Combine pork, bean sprouts, cabbage, mung bean noodles, egg, light soy sauce, sugar, and white pepper in a bowl. Mix well.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add pork mixture and stir-fry until pork is cooked through and looks somewhat dry, about 3 minutes. Add more soy sauce, sugar, or pepper to taste. Set aside to cool.

  • Stir 1 tablespoon flour with some water to make a sticky paste for sealing the spring rolls.

  • Lay 1 spring roll wrapper on a flat work surface with one of the corners facing you. Place a scant teaspoon of the cooled filling right below the middle of the wrap. Fold the corner facing you over the filling. Roll the filling up about a half turn. Fold the left and right sides in to create an envelope shape. Finish rolling up the spring roll tightly, sealing the top corner with a dab of the flour paste. Store unused wrappers and finished spring rolls under a moistened kitchen towel, to prevent them from drying out.

  • Heat oil in a heavy pot over medium-low heat. Fry spring rolls in batches until cooked through and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
