    Spread spring roll wrappers on a flat surface and cover with a tea towel to stop them drying out. Place a wrapper diagonally on a work surface and place 2 tablespoons of filling on lower half. Top with two or three tofu strips. Fold lower corner up, then left and right corners over to enclose filling. Roll up. Brush upper corner with a little egg and press firmly to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.

    Heat oil in a wok or large heavy-based saucepan to 180°C, or until a cube of bread sizzles on contact. Deep-fry spring rolls in batches for 4-5 minutes, until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towel. Serve with sweet chilli sauce.
