Ingredients

Oil: Oil is used to fry the spring rolls, giving them a crispy and golden exterior. It also adds flavor to the dish.

Cumin Seeds: Cumin seeds have a warm, earthy flavor and are a common spice used in Indian cuisine. They add a subtle nuttiness to the spring rolls.

Onion: Onions add sweetness and depth of flavor to the filling of the spring rolls. They also provide a nice texture contrast to the potatoes.

Salt: Salt is a crucial ingredient in any dish as it enhances the overall taste of the spring rolls and brings out the flavors of the other ingredients.

Chilli Powder: Chilli powder adds a spicy kick to the spring rolls. The amount used can be adjusted according to personal preference for heat.

Garam Masala: Garam masala is a blend of ground spices commonly used in Indian cooking. It adds warmth and depth of flavor to the filling of the spring rolls.

Turmeric Powder: Turmeric powder adds a vibrant yellow color to the filling of the spring rolls. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and a subtle peppery flavor.

Green Chillies: Green chillies add a fresh, spicy flavor to the spring rolls. The seeds can be removed for less heat, or more chillies can be added for extra spiciness.

Potatoes: Potatoes serve as the main ingredient in the filling of the spring rolls. They provide a hearty and satisfying element to the dish.

Coriander: Coriander, also known as cilantro, adds a bright, citrusy flavor to the spring rolls. It can be used as a garnish or mixed into the filling.

Cheese: Cheese adds a creamy and indulgent element to the filling of the spring rolls. It melts beautifully when the rolls are fried, creating a gooey and delicious center.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 2 Green Chillies
  • 500 g Potatoes
  • Coriander
  • 100 g Cheese

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  • Add chopped onions to the pan and sauté until they turn translucent.
  • Add the mashed potatoes to the pan and mix well with the onions.
  • Add salt, chili powder, garam masala, and turmeric powder to the mixture. Stir well to combine all the spices evenly with the potatoes.
  • Add the fresh coriander leaves to the mixture and stir to incorporate.
  • Add grated cheese to the mixture and mix until well combined. The cheese will melt due to the heat of the potatoes.
  • Take one spring roll wrapper and place it on a clean surface with one corner pointing towards you (like a diamond shape).
  • Place a spoonful of the cheesy potato mixture in the center of the wrapper.
  • Fold the bottom corner of the wrapper over the filling, then fold in the sides, and roll it up tightly into a cylinder shape, sealing the edges with a little water.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan or skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the spring rolls into the oil, a few at a time, and fry until they are golden brown and crispy on all sides.
  • Once cooked, remove the spring rolls from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  • Serve the cheesy potato spring rolls hot with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup, sweet chili sauce, or mint chutney.
