Rice Paper Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

These rice paper spring rolls are also called as Vietnamese spring rolls. These taste amazing with the peanut sauce. I make these spring rolls all the time as my family loves them. Usually we can add any filling of our choice. These spring rolls are a refreshing change from the regular fried ones. They are a perfect appetizer for any occasion and will be a hit among family and friend. These are so delicious, easy to make and healthy.

These spring rolls are so easy to make that you just have to gather all the ingredients and there is no need of cooking except the shrimp that you can cook long before making these rolls. We can fry these spring rolls in oil but it wont be healthy.

I highly recommend to consume these spring rolls within several hours of making them. If they are refrigerated they will become hard and difficult to chew. Try this recipe and let me know.


  1. Rice Paper- 12 numbers
  2. Shrimp- 20-25
  3. Pickled Carrots - 1 Cup
  4. Lettuce Leaves- 2 Cups
  5. Rice Noodles- 2 ounces
  6. Red Chilli Powder- 1 tbsp
  7. Turmeric Powder- 1/2 tsp
  8. salt- as required
  9. Oil- 1 tbsp

Method for marinated shrimp:

  • Mix the shrimp along with salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and fry in the 1 tbsp of oil till done. Remove on a kitchen towel and keep it aside.

  1. Meanwhile boil water and cook the rice noodles till al dente. Drain, rinse them under cool water and drain again.
  2. Heat water in a pan and when it becomes warm switch off the flame and place the rice paper in the warm water and let it rest for 20 sec. Wait till the rice paper is pliable but not super floppy. Carefully lay it flat on a towel.
  3. Place a few pieces of sliced carrots, lettuce, rice noodles one on top of the other and fold it tightly, now line the shrimp about 1 1/2 inches below the toip edge of the rice paper. By leaving a gap between the shrimp and the vegetables, the shrimp will look vibrant in the final roll. 
  4. Grab the lower edge of the rice paper with thumb and pointer finger, lift and roll up the spring roll. Use the other fingers to hold the filling. Fold the left and right edge and finish the rolling. It now looks like a rolled envelope.
  5. Repeat the same with the remaining.

Peanut sauce

  1. Peanut Butter- 1/2 Cup
  2. Soy sauce- 2 tbsp
  3. Vinegar- 2 tbsp
  4. Sesame oil- 1 tbsp
  5. Garlic- 2 tbsp
  6. Water- as needed


  • Mix all the ingredients except water in a small bowl till combined and if the dip is too thick add 1 tbsp of water. The sauce should be creamy and dip-able.
  • Enjoy the spring rolls with peanut sauce.
