Ingredients

  • 8 round rice paper wrappers for spring rolls 8.5” / 22cm
  • 10 oz | 300 g lean ground chicken
  • 2 tbsp butter or olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove with skin crushed (for infusing)
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • Big pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp mustard
  • 1 chili pepper seeds and membrane removed and minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or ghee
  • 1 medium carrot diced in small cubes
  • 1 small red bell pepper seeded and diced in small cubes
  • 1/2 cup | 15 gr. fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh mint chopped (optional)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  • In a medium sauce pan, infuse the crushed garlic with skin in the ghee (or olive oil) on a fairly low hear for 2 minutes. Remove the garlic clove.
  • Add ground chicken and saute for 8-10 min until chicken is dry and cooked through, stirring occasionally and breaking up lumps. Add ginger and salt and saute for 5 minutes more.
  • For the curry, start by adding the cumin seeds and sizzle them for 30 sec. Add in the turmeric, mustard and chili, give everything a good stir and reduce heat to medium-low.
  • In the meantime, warm olive oil (or ghee) in a deep non stick skillet set over medium-high heat.
  • Add in the diced carrot and bell pepper and sautée for 5-10 minutes, or until cooked and still crunchy.
  • Place the vegetables in the pan where the chicken has been cooking and mix until just combined.
  • Fold in fresh parsley, mint and lemon juice, stir and remove from heat.
  • Pour 2 inches/ 5 cm of warm water into a large shallow dish. One at a time, place a rice paper wrap in the water and let soften, just until it becomes pliable (this step is important! Do not let the paper become completely soggy or the rice paper will split. There should still be some pattern visible on the surface). Remove from water and place rice paper on a clean, flat surface. Using a very sharp knife or a pizza cutter, slice the rice paper circle in half. On each half, place a generous scoop of the filling. Carefully fold it, creating a triangle. Fold the top of the package to seal it, and flip it over. Repeat steps with the remaining rice paper and filling.
