Vlammetjes (Dutch spring rolls)

Fancy a snack with added bite? Then rustle up vlammetjes – the deliciously spicy spring rolls that famously fire up tastes buds in the Netherlands!


5 spring roll sheets
250 g of minced beef
5 chilli peppers
2 tsp. of sambal oelek
1 egg
5 dl sunflower oil
2 cloves of garlic
Salt and pepper

vlammetjes recipe


First cut the spring roll sheets into quarters and then cut each diagonally once more, until you’re left with 40 triangles. Crush the garlic and chilli peppers using a food processor or mortar and mix into the meat, together with the sambal oelek, salt and pepper. Next break the egg into a bowl and whisk briefly with a fork. Now arrange a small ball of the minced beef mixture on each triangle and brush the edges of the sheet with a little egg, before folding the corners together to form another triangle. Brush all the three corners with egg again and fold each until the vlammetje forms a rectangle. Now heat the sunflower oil in a heavy skillet or frying pan and fry the vlammetjes for a few minutes or until golden brown. Serve the freshly prepared vlammetjes with sweet chilli sauce.
