  • 1 whole clove
  • 1 chicken bird organic or free range
  • 1 very small bunch coriander sprigs
  • About 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 5-8 tasp of fish sauce
  • 2 tasp of rock sugar
  • Pepper (optional)
  • Optional extras: Bean sprouts, mint sprigs, Thai basil, cilantro leaves, lime wedges, thinly-sliced chili




  • Toast the broth ingredients: In a 3- to 4-quart (3 to 4 l) pot, toast the coriander seeds and clove over medium heat until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the ginger and onions. Stir for about 30 seconds, until aromatic.
  • Prepare the chicken broth: Wash the chicken well and place it in a large pot that fit the chicken with plenty of water. Bring it to the boil then discard the first water.
  • Wash the chicken and pot. Fill the pot again with water and add the chicken in. Peel the ginger and smack with the flat side of a knife or meat mallet. Peel and cut the onions.
  • Bring the chicken pot to the boil. Skim and Simmer for 15 mins and turn off the pot and leave the chicken in for 20 mins to get it cooked.
  • Remove the chicken in ice bath and keep it cool so you can start to remove the meat from the birth. Add the bones in the stock and cook them for another 30 mins.
  • Turn off the stove and leave it for 30 mins to get the flavour out of the bones. Remove the bones and pass through a sieve. You can keep it in the fridge to get rid of the fat on top or eat them straight away.

  • 4 medium size dried shitake mushrooms - soak till soft and cut into small dices
  • 4 pieces dried wood ear mushrooms - soak till soft and cut into small dices
  • 1/4 cup dried shrimp - optional - soak till soft and cut into small dices
  • 1/2 small onion or whole med shallot - finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup of small jicama or kohlrabi, peeled, diced
  • ½ carrot, diced
  • 120 g minced pork - optional
  • 1 egg, beaten - optional
  • 1/2 tsp salt and ground black pepper
  • 10 sheets thin pastry
  • vegetable oil, for shallow-frying




  • Place all the dried mushrooms in a bowl and cover with hot water to soak and soften. Do the same for the dried shrimp. Once they are soft, drain and thinly slice the mushrooms and finely chop the shrimp.
  • Place the minced pork, mushrooms, shrimp, onions, spring onions, jicama and carrot in a big bowl and combine well. Add the beaten egg to hold everything together. Sprinkle in the salt, pepper. Set aside to combine the flavours until needed.
  • To make the dipping sauce, stir the fish sauce and sugar in a bowl until the sugar dissolves. Add 2 tasp vinegar, 2 tasp fishsauce, 1 tasp sugar, 4 tasp water, 1/2 lime juice, chilli and garlic.
  • To roll the spring rolls, lay a sheet of rice paper on a clean, dry surface.Place 2 tablespoons of filling and line the mixture up near the edge of the rice paper like a sausage. Fold over the short edge once to cover the filling, then fold in the rice paper from left and right to enclose the filling securely. Continue rolling towards the end of the rice paper and set aside until ready to cook. Repeat with the remaining rice paper and filling.
  • Fill a large frying pan with vegetable oil until 1.5 cm deep and heat over medium heat. In batches, gently place the spring rolls into the pan to prevent them sticking to each other and breaking the fragile wrapping. Fry for 4–5 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen towel to soak up the excess oil
  • To serve, provide everyone with their own dipping bowl and fill with a couple of tablespoons of nước mắm pha and some fresh coriander. Add some extra black pepper if you like and get dipping!
