Stuffing for Spring Rolls

I used this Spring Roll Sheet only,U will find in any Indian Store in Frozen Section.Before using follow the instruction on back.

How to Roll the Spring Roll:  

  • Take one sheet ,keep 2 teaspoon full of vegetable stuffing in little bit lower middle.
  • Apply water all around,on the spring roll with the help of finger.Water helps to stick together. 
  •  Fold all edges,and make a roll.
  • Please follow the pictures,for clear idea.

  • Set all rolled Spring rolls in one plate.
  • Heat the oil & deep fry it in medium flame.
  • Deep fry all Spring Rolls get Crispy outside,and gloden brown in color.
  • Transfer the fried rolls in to Paper towels.
  • Now Spring rolls is ready.
  • Serve with Chinese Hot and Sour Sauce.


Note: You can change any stuffing to your wish.
