4. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add a thin layer of the egg mixture and cook over a medium heat until set.

5. Spoon some pork mixture into the centre, and then flip each side into the middle to form a parcel. Repeat until all the mixture is used up.

6. To make the peanut sauce, fry the paste for about a minute until it is fragrant.

7. Stir in the peanut butter, palm sugar, lemon juice and coconut milk, bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes.

8. Serve the rolls with the peanut sauce as a dip.
