Thai Spring Rolls (Po Piah Tort)


2 oz vermicelli noodles
3 cloves garlic
2 coriander (cilantro) roots
6 white peppercorns
1 Tbs safflower oil (for frying paste)
2 oz shrimp meat, minced
2 oz lean pork, minced
1 Tabs minced scallions
1-2 Thai Chiles minced (optional)
2 Tabs fish sauce
1 Tab palm sugar
4 oz bean sprouts root removed
2 Tabs fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves
2 Tabs sliced shallots
1 packet spring roll wrappers (about 50 sheets)
4 Tabs plain (all-purpose) flour mixed with
2 Tabs water to make a paste
6 cups safflower oil for deep-frying

Preparation:

Place the vermicelli noodles in a bowl of warm water for 15 minutes to soften. Then remove from water and cut into 3” lengths. Set aside
Place the coriander roots, garlic, chiles, and peppercorns in a mortar and pound with pestle until a fine paste is made.
Add the paste to the hot oil and stir fry until fragrant. Then add the prawns and pork and stir fry until done, about 2 or 3 minutes. Now add the noodles, fish sauce and date palm sugar stirring to incorporate.
Place mixture in a bowl to cool. Add the coriander leaves, scallions, shallots, and bean spouts and mix together.
Set up your work station: plastic cutting board or work surface, bowl with meat mixture, bowl with flour and water mixture, plate with wrappers (covered with a slightly damp cloth to prevent drying out if it is a hot day.
Place a wrapper on the work surface, place 1 Tbs of meat mixture along the bottom third of the wrapper covering within ¾” of the two side edges. Tightly roll up the bottom edge of the wrapper, then fold over the right and left sides, continue rolling tightly up to almost the top edge, apply a little flour water slurry with your finger tips to aid in sealing the roll.. This should be done one hour prior to frying and serving. This allows the “glue” to dry. Repeat this process until the meat filling is gone.

When ready to fry: pour oil into pan, heat to 350 deg F. Place several egg rolls (6 or 7) in the oil to fry, turning them to evenly brown all around.. Place fried egg rolls on paper towels to drain.
Serve at once with Hot Sweet Spicy Dipping Sauce or Cucumber Relish
