  • 1 packet of spring roll wrappers
  • 2 cups of shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup of julienned carrots
  • 1 bell pepper finely sliced
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • Start by heating a pan over medium heat. Add the sesame oil, once hot, toss in the spring onions, followed by other vegetables.
  • Sauté until they become slightly soft.
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and soy sauce, then set aside to cool.
  • On a clean surface, place a spring roll wrapper diagonally.
  • Spoon a small amount of the cooled vegetable mixture onto the lower corner of the wrapper.
  • Begin to tightly roll up from the bottom, fold in the sides, and continue rolling.
  • Moisten the top corner with a little water to seal the roll.
  • Repeat this process with remaining wrappers and filling.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a deep pan.
  • Once hot, carefully add the rolls a few at a time, frying until they turn golden brown.
  • Drain on a paper towel.


  1. Vegetable Prep: Julienned or thinly sliced vegetables will provide the best texture and flavour in your spring rolls.
  2. Rolling the Rolls: Be careful not to overstuff your rolls; it might cause them to burst while frying.
  3. Frying Temperature: The oil should be moderately hot for frying. If it’s too cool, the rolls will absorb too much oil. If it’s too hot, the rolls will burn on the outside before the inside is fully heated.
  4. Variations: Feel free to experiment with the fillings. You could add mushrooms, bean sprouts, or even a bit of shredded chicken or tofu for a protein boost.
Healthier Option: For a healthier version, these rolls can be baked in the oven at 200C (392F) for 20-25 minutes, or until they are golden and crispy.
