Roll it all the way into your mouth!!

Google will get you 276,000  spring roll recipes.I just don’t wish to append one more to the list.Here is a ‘local’ version of Indo-Kerala spring roll;-)


Preparing spring roll requires some effort and time,but its worth it.You can spare some time on this,and keep them in freezer,so that whenever you have that ‘roll-roll’ instinct,you can go grab the roll from the freezer,deep fry,sit back and enjoy with ease..So,spare a few hours on making extra spring rolls as to enjoy lavishly for days on days to come.


We’ll need

Chicken-1/2 kg

Onion-2 nos

Ginger-Garlic-1 tspn

Green chilly-3-5 nos


Curry leaves-1 stalk

Coriander leaves-2 tbspn

Soya sauce-2 tbspn

Chiily powder-1/2 tspn

Coriander powder-1 tspn

Garam Masala-1/2 tspn

Shredded cabbage-1/2 cup

Shredded caroot-1/4 cup

Capsicum- 1 small


Cook chicken adding 1 tspn each ginger-garlic paste,coriander powder,chilly powder,turmeric powder,garam masala,vinegar and salt.When done,remove bones and cut into small lenghty pieces.Keeep aside.(The quantity of masala powders mentioned while coooking chicken  is seperate from that in main recipe)


Heat oil in a pan and add diced onions.When they turn brow,add ginger-garlic paste,green chillies and curry leaves(both cut into very small pieces).Add diced tomato.When tomatoes turn soft,add coriander powder,chilly powder and garam masala.When oil starts to seperate,add cut capsicum,shredded cabbage and carrot.Add salt and soya sauce.Keep strring until vegetables are half-cooked.Remove from heat and add cut coriander leaves.


Now we’ll prepare batter for making pancakes,which will be used to wrap ‘n’ roll the masala.

Maida-1 cup

Water-1 1/2 -1 3/4 cup


Salt-1/4 tspn

Mix maida, egg, water and salt together and make a thin batter.Pour a laddle of batter onto the pan and cook until the downside is done.Do not cook the upper portion.Remove the pancake from heat to a flat surface.Place a tablespoon of chicken masala on one end of the uncooked portion of pancake and roll it as shown below.Beat an egg very well and keep aside.Keep bread crumbs ready on another plate.Dip each roll in egg solution and then into bread crumbs.Press bread crumbs on to the roll using your hand,lest they may not fall down.Repeat the process for the remaining batter.Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the spring rolls until golden brown. Serve hot with tomato sauce!!..Trust me,this is yummmmmy snack..











Now that's worth the whole effort:-)

    @Rashi,I just made his do all that ,being a ‘model’ for my photos;-)

  1. Hmm Sis Nimmy!

    Those Rolls seem to be very good. I never knew that you are such a great blogger plus an astonishing cook.

    My mum says that she once used to be a great cook too in her life but slowly slowly, she lost interest in cooking & forgot so many good recipes.

    Your blog has made her think of her good old days of cooking when she was a young girl aged 17-18. She used to cook exotic meals & was highly praised!

    Your cooks & mum’s memories incentivised me to cook something right now!

    Oh sis Nimmy, you are miraculous!!=D>

  2. Looks utterly delicious. However, I take the easier way out and prepare my spring rolls in filo pastry.

    Yours definitely look like they’re worth trying someday!
