Prawn and Banana Fried Spring Rolls

Prawn and banana fried spring rolls

This spring roll is one of the most popular choices at my workplace. See if you can make them at home.

Ingredients

Medium size prawns: 100g cut into half lengthwise
Ripe banana: 2 bananas cut into 8 pieces (first lengthwise then horizontally)
Sesame oil: 5 ml
Chicken powder: ¼ teaspoon
Cooking oil: 200 ml
Rice paper: 8 pieces

Nem tom chuoi

How to make:

Peel off the hard shell of the prawns; wash thoroughly then drain well
Pour a little cooking oil into a sauce pan; heat until hot; when the cooking oil reaches 80 degrees C, put prawns, sprinkle sesame, chicken powder in & stir in 5 minutes.
Place half a prawn and a piece of banana on a rice paper before rolling it into a roll.
Pour 200 ml cooking oil into a pan; heat until hot then put spring rolls in and fry until color of the “nem” turns brown. Serve hot

They look good, but what on earth is chicken powder??

junebee said...

Shrimp and bananas? I will have to try that.

Is chicken powder what we call boullion? Boullion is a hard, compressed cube that melts in water and makes chicken broth. You can also buy the loose powder.

hanoimark, chicken powder is what the western called bouillon..... Junebee is right. Over here we usually uses the powder type.

Very delicious post! I'll surely try doing this at home! By the way, I am going to go eating something!

Don't know about you guys, but I find posting your email address in blog comment areas results in piles of spam!

Thanks for the clarification on chicken powder. I'm kinda relieved it's just chicken soup powder. I was imaging some kind of pulverized chicken.

I didn't know that there are such things like Banana fried rolls. I didn't know that Asians have banana based dishes.
