Wash and peel outer skin of carrot (discard outer skin). Cut carrot into 4 pieces and peel the carrot into thin strips. You can also grate from the grater. Chopped cabbage, spring onion and finely chop garlic.
Heat water in a pan, add thin noodles in hot boiling water and keep noodles for 4 minutes. Drain noodles and rinse it with cold water. Set noodles aside.
Heat pan on medium-high heat, add sesame oil, chopped garlic, carrot, cabbage (you can add vegetable of your own choice like: green beans, mushroom, tofu etc). Sauté for a minute and add spring onion. Stir for 2 minutes and make sure vegetable are tender and crunchy.

Make a thick paste of cornstarch and water. Keep it aside.
Take out spring roll sheets on a plate and keep them covered with damp paper towel. Take a spring roll sheet and place it diagonally facing towards you. Apply think paste (from step 5) on the edges of the sheet. Place 2 tablespoons of stuffing on the sheet, approx 1.5 inch away from the corner which is near to you. Lift the corner near you and give a tight roll (enclosing the stuffing) and stop rolling just before you reach the midway. Now apply cornstarch paste on left and right side. Lift the right corner and fold it to left. Again, lift the left corner and bring it to right side. It will look like an open envelope. Start rolling it again till the end. At this point, you should have tightly sealed spring roll. Repeat this step for folding rest of the spring rolls. You can also refer to the video for folding technique.
