Thai Fresh Spring Rolls, 'Pa Pia Sod'
Fresh rolls are healthy and delicious, and the fruity tamarind sauce adds super flavor character. Thai-style fresh rolls are called po pia which is a Chinese word, so this is Chinese style which became popular in Thailand. Vietnamese fresh spring rolls are more commonly enjoyed in America, so you might be more familiar with them. This version is typically what you find in Thailand. Don't be afraid to pop them in the microwave and serve warm. Vegetarians can easily leave out the pork and shrimp, and use shiitake or other mushroom.
Though we did not use them in this recipe, often are added to fresh spring rolls. Just soak for 5-7 minutes, and add a small amount to the mix. Also see: recipe for fried spring rolls.
