3 Put some chicken floss at the centre of 1 small sheet, roll up, then tie a knot. (Reminder: For better taste, use white chicken floss, i.e. chicken floss without caramel to make this. White chicken floss is usually available at bakery supplies shops.)

4 Put spring rolls in large trays, leave under hot sun for about 3-4 hours until dried up. (Reminder: If you deep-fry the spring rolls without drying them first, the knot parts will be difficult to cook through.)

5 Preheat cooking oil to about 160°C/320°F. Put in spring rolls (divide into a few batches), deep-fry over medium heat. (Reminder: If the oil is too hot, the skin of fried spring rolls will have a lot of bubbles.)

6 After frying over medium heat for about 2.5 minutes, the bubbles have reduced and spring rolls have turned light golden brown, turn to medium-high heat for 20-25 seconds before removing from heat.

7 Remove deep-fried spring rolls from oil and put on strainer ladle to strain the oil. (Reminder: Turn off the heat first to prevent the oil temperature from rising too high. If the oil temperature is higher than 160°C, let it slightly cool down to about 160°C, then turn to medium heat before adding in the next batch. )
