“Just the sauce alone from this recipe is so good! These are so easy to make no pre-cooking just mix, fill the wrapppers then roll and fry and no cooking the sauce either! This recipe should make about 14-15 spring rolls, I strongly suggest to double the recipe, these are very good! To save time prepare the filling up to a day in advance and refrigerate.”
