Finely chop the onion, garlic, lemongrass, ginger and chillies. Reduce to a paste in the food processor together with half of the sesame seeds. Heat the peanut oil in a pan. Add the pasta and fry briefly, until you smell curry. Add the spinach and cook briefly, stirring occasionally, until wilted. Dress with the fish sauce. Let it cool, pour the spinach into a colander and squeeze it lightly.

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C. Brush the strudel pastry sheets with a little sesame oil and fold them once. Distribute the spinach lengthwise in the center of each folded sheet. Be careful to leave the edges free. Place the prawns on the filling. Fold the sides of the pastry lengthwise over the filling. Carefully roll the strudel and place it on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Brush with the remaining sesame oil. Bake in the center of the oven for approx. 20 minutes. You may be interested to read bostrengo recipe/ skyr cake with blueberries recipe/ Quail wrapped in bacon recipe.
