Ingredients
 

Spring Roll

  • 20 pcs Spring Roll Wrapper
  • 1 cup Pork Shredded
  • 1 cup Carrot Shredded
  • 1 cup Napa Cabbage – Chinese Cabbage – Wombok Whit part, shredded
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tbsp Oyster Sauce
  • 50 grams (1.76 oz) Bean Sprout
  • Vegetable Oil For deep frying

Slurry for Sealing

  • 1 tbsp Flour
  • 1 tbsp Water

Marinating

  • ¼ tsp Ground White Pepper Powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp White Sugar – Regular Sugar – Granulated Sugar
  • ½ tsp Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Chinese Cooking Wine – Shaoxing Wine – Shaosing Wine
  • 2 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Oil

Instructions
 

Preparation

  • Prepare all ingredients ahead of time and make sure to weigh each one properly.

Marinating

  • Start by marinating the shredded pork using all ingredients from the list of sauce.
  • Set it aside for about 15 minutes.

Cooking

  • Using a wok, heat the oil and shallow fry the marinated shredded pork until the pink flesh color disappeared.
  • Transfer the pork and let it cool down to avoid overcooking the meat since it will be deep-fried later on.

Slurry

  • Combine all ingredients for the slurry and mix until it becomes slightly sticky.

Assembly

  • Use a large round plate and put the wrapper on top.
  • Add the fillings (pork, carrots, Napa cabbage, and bean sprouts) about 3 cm (1.2 in) away from the corner facing you. Roll up and fold both sides of the wrapper.
  • Using the slurry, wet the two sides and the opposite side.
  • Continue to roll up the wrapper until it reaches the opposite side.

Deep Frying

  • Preheat the oil in a small pot or wok. Ensure that the oil is 160C (320F). You may test it by putting a small piece of the wrapper. When it floats and produces bubbles, it means that the oil is ready for deep frying.
  • Carefully slide each spring roll into the oil and deep fry in small batches. The right appearance is light brown.

Second Frying

  • Once all spring rolls are deep-fried, then do the second frying.
  • Heat the oil again for 3 minutes more, put all spring rolls, and continue frying for 10 seconds or until they become golden brown.
  • Drain the excess oil using a paper towel before serving.

NOTES

Pick fresh vegetables if you want the taste to be sweet, and the texture is crunchy.
COOKING TIPS:

Second frying is done for homemade spring rolls if you want to achieve a crispier and golden brown outside. The first frying is done in medium heat to cook all the filling. The second time frying at a high temperature is to ensure that everything is equally cooked from outside to inside.

SERVE WITH:

You may serve it with any dip that you want, but commonly it is served with sweet and sour ketchup.
