- 2 cups vegetable oil
- 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 3 cups finely shredded wombok (Chinese cabbage)
- 2 medium carrots, peeled, grated
- 1 tablespoon cornflour
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 cup beansprouts, trimmed
- 10 frozen spring roll wrappers, thawed
- Sweet and sour sauce, to serve
Part one, what we did
We got all the ingredients and placed them down. Then we cut the wombok (chinese cabbage) into tiny pieces and in the mean while my bro (brother) was shaving the carrots into small pieces we crushed the garlic that was it, the rest is done.
Part two, what we did
We put the wok on high heat and put in a little bit of oil, then my brother put in the carrot & cabbage while I steered. Then after 2 minutes we put in the rest of the ingredients and steered for 1 more minute. Then we put it in a bowl and we got out a tray and put on baking paper and then we used spring roll wrapping to wrap it. To finish we fry the spring rolls in the wok (with 2 cups of oil) over medium heat until they got golden brown.

My Vietnam experience
In 2014 yep you guessed it went to Vietnam, the most memorable place ever. Vietnam is well known for their street food and the war, the country is more poor we had to be careful for bad ingredients in your drink but the reason why I am telling you all this is because of my lifetime experience there and that is why we kids made this well, it is fun. At Vietnam we got to make our own spring rolls and it was fun seeing how it was cooked and I think some of had to do with why I love cooking so much other then my dad and his great cooking.
My Brother’s experience
Going to Vietnam was such a great experience, all the great street food it’s so much more fresh than in Australia. When you walk through the markets you smell all different kind of vietnamese food. In Vietnam we stayed at someone’s house and that was the first ever time we made spring rolls.
