For the spring rolls:

  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic


  • 2 cups (5 oz) shredded green cabbage
  • 1 medium carrot


  • 1 green onion

    thinly sliced

  • 8 oz ground pork
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 12
  • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil

For the sweet chili sauce:

  • ½ cup (4 fl oz) sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp soy sauce


  • 1Heat the sesame oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the ginger and garlic and cook stirring for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add the cabbage, carrot and onion and cook, for 3 minutes, or until soft.
  • 2Add the pork and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, breaking up the lumps, until just cooked. Add the soy and oyster sauce.
  • 3Spread the filling in a shallow dish and refrigerate for 30 minutes. A cold filling will stop the wrappers going soggy.
  • 4Mix the cornstarch and water together.
  • 5Cover the wrappers with a damp towel to prevent them from drying out. Working with one wrapper at a time, spoon 3 tablespoons of the filling on the wrapper, just below the halfway line. Fold in the bottom then sides and roll to enclose the filling. Brush a little cornstarch mixture along the top edge and roll up tightly to seal.
  • 6Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling. Keep the spring rolls covered to prevent them from drying out.
  • 7The oven will preheat. Meanwhile, continue to the next step.
  • 8Generously brush the spring rolls all over with the oil so they can crisp. Place them evenly spaced apart in the air fry basket.
  • 9Once preheated, place the basket in rack position 3 and start the timer. When the Rotate Remind signals, rotate the basket. Meanwhile, make the sauce.
  • 10Combine all the sauce ingredients listed below.
  • 11The spring rolls should be golden and crisp. If not, give it a bit more.
  • 12Serve with the sauce.
