Nem rán (“fried springroll”), which can be roughly translated as "minced pork roll," is a staple of Vietnamese cuisine. In southern Vietnam, it is referred to as chả giò ("fried minced pork"). Springrolls typically consist of seasoned ground meat, mushrooms, and diced vegetables such as carrots, kohlrabi and jicama, rolled up in a sheet of moist rice paper. The roll is then deep fried until the rice paper coat turns crispy and golden brown. The ingredients, however, are not strictly set. It can be eaten by itself or served with fish sauce and raw vegetables.
