We have a Thai restaurant in town that has the most delicious spring rolls -- they're better than anything else on the menu. I could eat a plate of them. And the sweet/sour sauce served with them is perfection.
So (you guessed it) my adventurous husband decided to replicate said delicacies in our kitchen. He watched videos online (albeit from a Vietnamese chef) and then visited the local Asian market.
He started with chopped carrots, cabbage, and bean noodles, which you see here. To this, he also added chopped garlic, salt, and a little sesame oil.
He had fun with the rice wrappers. He soaked them in water to make them pliable,
Here's a nice-looking one. And they were scrumptuous, Truly Scrumptuous. We will have these again, and I don't care how they look, although he's already plotting how to keep them from bursting open in their enthusiasm to be cooked. He'll try to wrap them so as to eliminate all air inside, and make much skinnier ones, and fry them hotter to avoid the greasiness.
