These lovely rolls feature an intensely flavored, sweet-sour sauce made with tamarind, a sour pulp found in tree pods native to Asia. Ingredient tip: Look for tamarind concentrate or paste sold in jars and cans in your natural market’s ethnic foods section. Prep tip: Blanching makes the chives pliable enough to tie around the rolls. To blanch, drop in boiling water for 10 seconds, then drain and run under cold water.
- Combine all Tamarind Sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until emulsified. Set aside.
- Cut carrots, cucumber, and mango into matchsticks. Finely chop nuts, cilantro, and mint. Lay spinach leaves on a flat work surface. Arrange carrots, cucumber, mango, and bean sprouts on each leaf. Top with nuts, then cilantro and mint. Roll up and tie with a blanched chive or green onion. Trim ends to shape. Hold each roll upright and pour about 1 teaspoon sauce into each (or use as a dipping sauce). Serve, passing extra sauce.
