onto one paper and roll across to end of facing paper, tucking in the ends.
Deep fry in hot oil about 10-15 minutes until dark golden brown. To eat,
place a spring roll in a lettuce-leaf lined with a couple of mint leaves,
roll up and dip in fish sauce, below.

sugar to taste) 2 cloves crushed garlic 1 Tbsp or more (to taste) of
bottled fish sauce (available in Oriental
stores) 1/2 tsp crushed Italian red pepper

Add garlic and crushed red pepper to lemonade. Add fish sauce several
drops at a time until the lemonade turns brownish (to taste).

NOTE: Spring Rolls may be made ahead, fried 10 minutes, and frozen. Thaw
and fry an additional 5-10 minutes when ready to serve. Fish sauce will
keep in fridge a couple weeks.
