Spring Rolls – A Classic Chinese Appetizer

Spring rolls are a classic Chinese appetizer that is enjoyed all over the world. They are light, crispy, and packed with a variety of fresh vegetables and savory fillings. Spring rolls can be customized with a range of ingredients, including meat, seafood, tofu, and vegetables, making them a versatile and delicious dish for any occasion.

Here is a simple and easy recipe for making spring rolls at home:


  • 10 spring roll wrappers
  • 2 cups finely shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • Oil for frying


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded cabbage, grated carrots, bean sprouts, chopped mushrooms, green onions, garlic, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil. Mix well to combine.
  2. Take a spring roll wrapper and place it on a clean work surface. Spoon a small amount of the filling onto the bottom third of the wrapper.
  3. Fold the bottom of the wrapper over the filling, then fold in the sides to create an envelope shape. Roll the wrapper tightly towards the top, sealing the edges with a bit of water.
  4. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  5. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, carefully add the spring rolls to the pan and fry until they are golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes.
  6. Remove the spring rolls from the pan and place them on a paper towel to drain any excess oil.
  7. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce, such as sweet chili sauce, hoisin sauce, or soy sauce.

Enjoy your homemade spring rolls as a delicious and authentic Chinese appetizer. They are perfect for parties, gatherings, or a quick snack, and the leftover spring rolls can be stored in the refrigerator and reheated for a tasty meal option.
