Delicious Ethnic Fried Spring Roll With Shiitake Powder

Crispy on the surface, chewy in texture, rice paper makes for a different kind of spring roll! Rice paper is used to wrap pork stew with Shiitake powder and deep-fry these juicy, Umami-filled spring rolls. The Vietnamese seasoning fish sauce and uniquely fragrant coriander will leave you wanting more.

When making fried spring rolls with rice paper, ensure there is no air in the roll to prevent it from bursting during frying.
If you wet the rice paper too much, it will become too soft and not roll properly. Only moisten it briefly.
It may be tough at first, but as you roll it up, it will soften with the ingredients' moisture inside.

Add the Shiitake powder, vermicelli, minced meat, onion, and B, to a bowl and mix thoroughly. Once mixed, separate into 12 equal parts.
Lightly wet the rice paper with some water.
While the rice paper is still hard, place a portion of 4. on top of it, then fold it on the left and right and roll it in front. Finally, dab some water on the edge before reaching the end to secure the roll.
Repeat this 12 times.
Insert the spring rolls into the frying pan and add cold oil so that about 1/3 of the spring rolls is covered, then turn on the heat.
Slowly fry them while turning them over regularly, and once the insides are cooked, put on high heat to make the skin crispy.
Once cooked, plate it up together with your favorite vegetables.
Wrap the spring rolls in red leaf lettuce, add any vegetables you like, then dip it in the sauce and enjoy.
