  • 100 g Bean sprouts/ mung beans
  • Small bunch fresh coriander (cilantro) roughly chopped

Nahm Jim Dipping Sauce

  • 1.5 Red Thai Chillis (or a red chilli) Deseeded, rough chopped

  • ½ bunch Fresh coriander (Cilantro)
  • 2 Lemons Juice only
  • 1 tablespoon Palm sugar

Rice Paper Rolls

  • Prepare your filling ingredients.
  • To make the rice paper rolls, fill a large bowl with warm water.
  • Add 1 sheet of the rice paper to the bowl of water and allow it to soften, this will take 30 - 60 seconds. (See note 1)
  • Remove the sheet from the bowl and drain off any excess water, place onto a damp work surface.
  • Arrange the cut carrot, cucumber, avocado, bean sprouts and coriander along the edge of the sheet.
  • Fold the edge until the ingredients are covered, adjust enough to tuck the ingredients in with the edge of the sheet.
  • Fold in each side of the sheet.
  • Roll up, keeping it tight but work gently to avoid tearing the sheet.
  • Cut in half or leave whole to serve.

Nahm Jim Dipping Sauce

  • Grab your pestle and mortar and add the garlic, chilli, coriander and pound to a paste. (You can also use a mini chopper)
  • Add the sugar and pound into mix. Then add the lemon juice and mix well.
  • Use the fish sauce to season to taste. (See note 2)
  • Once finished store in an air tight container in the fridge, until ready to serve. It will stay fresh for up to 2 days.


Note 1 - Soak time may vary depending on the brand of rice paper rolls, so check the instructions.
Note 2 - You want to find a balance of sweet, sour, spicy and salty. Fish sauce can be quite overpowering so add slowly and taste as you go.
