Traditional Thai Spring Rolls

No party platter is complete without a batch of freshly made spring rolls – they’re perfect when entertaining, and are even awesome as appetisers or for the kids’ lunchboxes! My top tip? Ensure the filling has cooled down fully before you start rolling to keep the wrappers intact.


Traditional Thai Spring Rolls

10 minutes
25 minutes + cooling time
Makes about 20

20 large spring roll wrappers

dipping sauces to serve e.g. Marion’s Kitchen Coconut Sweet ChilliMarion’s Kitchen Sweet Chilli and Marion’s Kitchen Coconut Sriracha (use my store locator to find out where to buy)

vegetable oil for deep frying



100g bean thread (cellophane/glass) noodles

3 garlic cloves

1 tsp black peppercorns

2 coriander roots, chopped

1 tbsp vegetable oil

200g (7 oz) pork mince

1 cup grated carrot

2 cups finely sliced cabbage

2 tbsp fish sauce


Spring roll glue:

3 tbsp plain flour (all-purpose flour)

3 tbsp water

  • Step 1

    For the filling, soak noodles in warm water for 5 minutes to soften. Drain, then use scissors or a knife to cut noodles into short lengths. Use a mortar and pestle to pound the garlic, peppercorns and coriander root to a fine paste. Heat vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the garlic paste and cook for about a minute. Add the pork and cook until just cooked through. Then add the noodles, carrot, cabbage and fish sauce. Cook for about 3 minutes or until vegetables have softened. Taste and season with more fish sauce if needed.  Set aside to cool completely.

  • Step 2

    Make the spring roll glue by mixing the flour and water together to form a thick paste.

  • Step 3

    Place about a heaped tablespoon of filling onto a wrapper. Fold like an envelope and roll up, sealing with the spring roll glue. Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers.

  • Step 4

    Heat enough vegetable oil in a saucepan for deep frying. When the oil is hot, cook spring rolls in batches for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and drain. Serve with the dipping sauce.

Awesome Spring Rolls

I’ve made these 4 times and will make some more today. They’re such a hit at parties and are always the first gone as people just love them. They’re also easy to freeze so you can have a good supply ready if needed. I’ve also made them with lean pork mince and finely chopped green prawns and they’re lovely too.

Thanks Mama Noi and Marion 😀
