These chicken spring rolls are a desi twist on the traditional Chinese chicken spring rolls recipe. This recipe shows you how to make a delicious spring roll filling that tastes even better than shop-bought chicken spring rolls.

Ever wondered how to make spring rolls? Crispy and golden chicken spring rolls that break into shards with a spicy chicken keema filling. Paired with a sweet-spicy sauce this chicken rolls recipe is perfect for a light summer dinner, a beautiful appetizer for a party, or a quick snack on the go.

Homemade spring rolls are easy to make and can even be frozen to use as required. Fried spring rolls that are spiced up with enough heat to make these perfect alongside homemade green chutney sauce or sweet chilli dip.

Spring rolls are traditionally a Chinese recipe, but this is my take to create some spiced Indian spring rolls. I have made many spring rolls and have several spring roll fillings ideas.

You could even use my keema samosa filling in these spring rolls. If you’re looking for a vegetarian alternative, then check out my aloo samosa recipes for an idea for a vegan filling.

Spring rolls are typical starters that are found at iftar dinners. If you’ve never made spring rolls before you can watch my video. It will show how to wrap spring rolls so you can make your desi-style spring rolls.

With this amount of filling approximately 30 spring rolls can be made, which is the number of sheets in a usual pack of spring roll sheets.

I like to add sweetcorn as well, but you can add whatever vegetables you like. Everyone has their own personal preferences. This spring rolls recipe is a great way to disguise vegetables in a crispy starter. You could even omit the chicken completely and create an entirely vegetarian filling.

These chicken spring rolls are perfect for Ramadan as they can be frozen and kept for 1-2 months. When required simply remove from the freezer an hour or so beforehand before deep frying.

When deep-frying the chicken spring rolls ensure that the oil is hot before adding the spring rolls as they might burst if the oil is too cold.
