They are not too hard to make, quite simple really, (once you get the hang of it). I made these from large spring roll wrappers for lunch, however just buy the mini spring roll wrappers for parties, or cut the large sheets into 4 squares, fiddily to do, but you can. They are also great for parties as they can be made in advance and frozen, ready to fry straight from the freezer when needed.
I say in the ingredients 2 cups of cabbage, I don't actually measure, If you add say 1 cup shredded cabbage you have a stronger saucy flavoured spring roll, my family find it too strong. I tend to buy 1/2 a Chinese cabbage and shred say 3/4 of it, I leave about 3cm of the very thick core. This gives a lighter flavoured spring roll.
The chilli is optional as I like to serve it with sweet chilli sauce, so if you know your family doesn't like spicy spring rolls, don't add the chilli in the roll.
When adding the filling to the pastry, try not to add too much of the liquid, it wets the pastry and makes it difficult to roll without tearing.
This could also be a lovely Sang Choy Bow filling, just top with some bean sprouts.
