Spring rolls are indeed one of the best representations of Vietnamese cuisine. A popular appetizer with a crunchy texture and intense flavor.
Spices, noodles, vegetables, and great herbs all play big roles in Vietnamese cuisine. Vietnamese cuisine is about balancing different flavors, spicy, sour, bitter, salty, and sweet. Vietnamese food has become popular around the world especially in the United States.
If you can’t find decent Vietnamese rice paper, you can use wonton wrappers. Another substitute is a Filipino-style spring roll wrapper — which is made from flour and water.
You can also add grated potatoes or sweet yams for a tastier filling. A great tip to perfect the cooking process for this recipe is to control the heat. If the oil is too hot, it will cook the spring rolls faster — leaving the filling raw. However, the spring rolls will become soggy if the oil is not hot enough.
If you are having an Asian-inspired food tasting, then this recipe can be a great starter. You may try this Cucumber dip for a change to your regular vinegar-based dip.
Light red wines would be a top choice for pairing this wine. They tend to create a great balance between savory and tartness, which leaves your palate open for new flavors in the succeeding courses.
