Thai spring roll or “Po Pia Thod” in Thai. ( Spring roll is "Po Pia" in Thai and deep-fried is "Thod" in Thai. Typical, Po Pia Thod is deep-fried food and served with sweet chili sauce or spring roll sauce. Tonight I use sweet chili sauce from the bottle. I will show you how to make it next time. And I steamed the Thai spring roll because my husband and I don’t like to eat deep-fried food. Everything still the same that Thai spring roll is supposed to be but I have soft Thai spring roll instead of crunchy Thai spring roll because I steamed it instead deep-fried. It is depend on you how would you like to eat it. Either steaming or deep-fried. I have bean sprout in my refrigerator and I think I need to use it before I have to trough them away so here I made Thai spring roll tonight. It 's like appetizer. It’s Thai style with a filling of either pork or chicken. Here shrimps are used for my Thai spring roll tonight. Add shredded carrots, cabbage, bean sprouts, green onion, mung bean noodle and cilantro. Season mixture with thin soy sauce, black pepper and fresh garlic. Roll up in spring roll wrappers or fresh egg roll wrappers. I used frozen spring roll wrappers package of spring roll package 5”x5” 50 sheets. If you would like to steam like I did tonight. I recommend you to use fresh egg roll is better spring roll wrappers that I use tonight. Ihe wrapper that I used tonight is better with deep-fried.
