A Good Appertizer For Holiday "Thai Spring Rolls (Paw Pia Thawt) Recipe"

Updated on December 11, 2010

Thai spring rolls (Pa pia thawt) are available and on the menu in any Thai restaurant. It is very popular appetizer in Thailand and also other countries. Surprisingly, this recipe is not difficult, so try and make it yourself to be as delicious as in a restaurant. This recipe can be made vegetarian with Tofu, or baby shrimp if you prefer.

I recommend this recipe, if you are looking for an appetizer for your next party. Why? Because I believe your guests will really appreciate the crunchy spring roll outside and the flavour of all the veggies and meat inside. You know, when you dip the spring roll in the chili sauce and put into your month, you will feel amazing!

So let's give it a try and you will find out that I am not lying you.


Serves 4

150 grams spring roll sheet (about 24 sheets)

100 grams mung bean noodle (already soaked)

100 grams minced pork or chicken

50 grams shredded cabbage

30 grams shredded carrot

50 grams dried ear mushroom, soaked until tender and finely sliced

1 egg

1 tbsp chopped garlic

1 tbsp chopped coriander root

1 tsp  ground black pepper

2 tbsp light soy sauce

1 tsp sugar

3 cups cooking oil, for deep-frying

Chili sauce

10 grams crushed red spur chili

120 grams sugar

1tsp salt

50 ml vinegar


1. Mix vinegar, sugar, salt and chilies together, simmer over medium heat until hot (if you don't want to make it, you can pick chili sauce from the asia market).

2. Soak the noodles for 15 minutes or until soft, drain and cut into short lengths. Mix the pork or chicken, egg, cabbage, carrot, mushrooms, ground black pepper light soy sauce and sugar together. Add 100 grams of noodle, and mix well.

3. Pound coriander roots and garlic finely to obtain a smooth paste. Saute' them in 3 tbsp of oil until golden and fragrant, add the pork and noodle mixture. Stir until it becomes fairy dry, remove and allow to cool.

How to fold spring rolls?

4. Spread a spring rool sheet on th flat surface, place 2 tbsp of the filling in the center, fold both sides of the sheet to cover the filling and roll tightly, seal the wrapper with the thick battter. Preheat the oil over medium-low heat until hot. Deep-fry spring rolls until crispy and golden brown. Remove and drain on absorbent paper.

Tip: The thick batter is made from 2 tbsp of wheat flour and 1/4 cup of water. Stir over low heat until the batter is done and clear, remove from the heat.

5. Arrange on a serving dish, garnish with red spur chili and sweet basil. Serve hot with chili sauce.

      Very nice app. BUT when my son (3.5 years) play it on my iphone his llttie hand always touch either the eraser or the arrow sign at the bottom since his finger is short. So the page always change and he could not write.. I think it will be better to move the arrow and eraser to top of screen.

      Now if it was like some of the festivals in Spain... they bring in tkrucs filled with peas, which the drunken young Pea Enthusiasts then proceed to throw at each other.Well, I'd all for that.The modern frozen baby peas are pretty popular in our house. Our kids will pour them cold into a bowl and snack on them.And a "Pie Floater" is popular here. A meat pie swimming in mushy canned peas. All your meat and vegetables in a convenient pre-chewed form.
