Recipe's preparation

    Prepare your filling
  1. Grate carrots, 5 seconds, speed 5 (repeat if necessary).  Set aside in a small bowl.


    Add garlic, shallot and coriander roots to the Thermomix bowl and chop 3 seconds, speed 5.  Scrape down sides of bowl and repeat. 


    Add oil and saute 4 minutes, 100 degrees, speed 1, MC OFF.


    Add fish sauce, white pepper and palm sugar and cook 30 seconds, 100 degrees, speed 1 until sugar is dissolved, MC OFF. 


    Add pork mince to bowl and cook 20 minutes, 100 degrees, reverse, spoon speed, MC OFF.


    Meanwhile, soak vermicelli noodles in a large bowl of water until softened (you can use boiling water for about 5 minutes to speed up the process).  Drain the noodles and cut into short lengths using scissors (see photo).  Set aside. 


    Once the mince mixture has finished cooking, taste to see if extra fish sauce, pepper or sugar is needed. 


    Add grated carrots and cooked prawn meat to the Thermomix bowl and mix, 5 seconds, speed 5.


     Add filling mixture to the bowl of prepared vermicelli noodles and stir to combine.  Sprinkle with spring onions then leave to cool. 

  2. Assemble spring rolls
  3. Use a damp tea towel to keep the spring roll pastry sheets moist.  Lay out one pastry sheet diagonally and place about a tablespoon of filling at one end, roll and fold in the two sides and continue rolling till it forms a spring roll.  Seal the end with water. 

    Fry the spring rolls in about an inch of oil in a fry pan.  Once browned, remove from oil and set on paper towel to cool.






** Serve with your choice of dipping sauce (sweet chilli, hot chilli, soy sauce etc).

**The spring rolls can be frozen uncooked - use baking paper in between layers to prevent them sticking.  They can then be cooked from frozen.

** The spring rolls can be cooked in an air fryer if you wish.  You will just need to give them a light spray of oil so that they brown in the air fryer.  They can otherwise be deep fried or shallow fried as described above.

** Prawns can be left out.  You can also substitute pork mince with either chicken or beef mince if you prefer.

** Increase the amount of garlic and coriander roots, or add extra coriander leaves and stems if you want to give it extra flavour.

** Add cut fresh chilli or some chilli flakes to the mixture if you would like a spicy filling.
