Nem cuon/Goi cuon's (Spring Rolls) history

Spring rolls are supposed to have originated in eastern China during the Jin Dynasty, which ruled from 266 to 420 AD. Farmers will commemorate the end of spring when they can harvest fresh veggies by preparing a pancake and wrapping it in the season's freshest vegetables.

Vietnamese spring rolls (Nem cuon/Goi cuon) are without a doubt a popular dish in Vietnam. Sausages, eggs, carrots, lettuce, kohlrabi, dried shrimp, veggies, and other items are used to make it. Vietnamese spring rolls are not cooked and served fresh, unlike Chinese spring rolls, which are fried and crispy. As more people demand lighter, healthier meals, Vietnamese rolls are ideal. Typically, Vietnamese spring rolls are loaded with shrimp, vegetables, herbs, and rice noodles, with occasionally some cooked pig.

There is almost no one-size-fits-all spring roll recipe because the recipe varies depending on the region. In fact, spring rolls are served as an appetizer in many Vietnamese restaurants.

There's no doubt that preparing Vietnamese spring rolls is simple, and they take no longer than 30 minutes to prepare.
