  • Preparation Time60 mins
  • Cooking Time30 mins
  • Serves12
  • DifficultyMedium
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
60g finely minced red onion
30g finely minced red peppers
2 tbsp minced ginger
1 tbsp minced garlic
25g sliced bamboo shoots
25g finely chopped celery
300g chopped chicken breast
60ml soy sauce
125g julienned green cabbage
60g shredded carrots
1L rice bran oil or vegetable oil
12 spring roll wrappers
2 avocados, sliced into 24 pieces
1 egg mixed with 1 tbsp milk
Jarred sweet chilli sauce, for dipping
1) Put the rapeseed oil in a saute pan over a high heat. Saute the red onions and peppers until translucent. Add the ginger, garlic, bamboo shoots, celery and chicken and cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat. Deglaze the pan with the soy sauce and then cool the mixture.

2) In a large bowl combine the cabbage, carrots and chicken mixture.

3) In medium saucepan, heat the rice bran oil to 180C; the oil needs to be deep enough to keep the spring roll from touching the bottom of the pan. Add more oil, if needed.

4) To roll, lay out a spring roll wrapper with one corner facing you. Place approximately 1/12 of the mixture on the wrapper and place 2 pieces of avocado on top. Fold the front corner over the mixture, and then fold the outside corners over the mixture, making a roll, 10 to 12cm wide. Roll firmly, being careful not to tear the wrapper, and seal the final edge with egg wash.

5) Dredge the spring roll in the egg wash, allow the excess to drain off. Submerge the spring roll in oil and fry until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on a sheet tray fitted with a cooling rack.

6) Roll and cook the remaining spring rolls. Serve immediately with sweet chilli sauce.
