Spring rolls: interesting facts and other stories
Thai cuisine is influenced by other Asian cultures, like the Indian, Vietnamese and Chinese cultures. In fact, spring rolls come from China filled with loads vegetables to make the most of the vast amount of greens that grow during this season. Its name, Popiah, travelled all the way to Thailand with a tribe that was fleeing the Chinese province of Fujian, although the recipe changed slightly on the way: in China, the pastry is made with flour, slightly salty water and some people add egg, whereas the people in Thailand wrap their rolls in rice paper before frying them. Also, Thai spring rolls usually have garlic, ginger and finely chopped coriander.
