"Vietnamese Spring Rolls" most of you sure refer to the one using Vietnamese rice paper , fresh vege and prawn. I called it Fresh Vietnamese Spring Roll.
This is the 'fried' version of Vietnamese Spring Rolls (Cha Gio), it suppose using the rice paper to wrap and fried but i couldn't found it at my nearby store so use normal spring rolls wrappers. 1st trial this type of spring rolls at a French man house , we all love it, eat a lot, the combination of the lettuce, mint leave and chillies with the spring rolls are so 'perfect'!!! 2nd trial, i learn it......and i'm sure "my buddy "...u all miss it is it??? ya..since 2011 our gathering , i didn't do it!!!
