Method

  1. Finely chop the prawns and put into a large bowl and add all the other filling ingredients up to the pastry wrappers. Mix really well with your hands to combine. Divide the mixture into 24 and put on a tray.
  2. Peel off 3 spring roll wrappers at a time and lay some mixture  at an angle across a corner and roll once, bring in the sides of the wrapper and roll completely (not to tightly) brush the point of the square with a little egg mixture and secure. Repeat with the rest putting them on a tray and cover with a clean tea towel as you go.
  3. Heat the oil either in a large wok. Fry 4 at a time, first on a low heat (this ensures they are cooked through) for 2 minutes without browning. Increase the heat to 175°C and fry until golden and crisp, drain on kitchen paper.
  4. To make the dip mix the apple into the chilli sauce and serve with the hot spring rolls. Scatter over the coriander springs.
