Blend coriander, Thai basil, spring onion, peanuts, corn oil and sesame oil. Mix in cheese to taste. Season with salt and pepper. Sautée chicken thighs until just cooked. Mix bamboo shoots and cooked chicken thighs with enough pesto to just bind. Place spring roll paper on a flat surface. Fill spring roll with a rounded spoonful of filling.
