Chicken spring roll here is made keeping in mind the month of Ramadan where we need many snacks recipes and ideas to make during the month of ramadan.
It is a very auspicious month and I would like my viewers to go through this recipe for special iftar snacks recipes as it is one of the best recipes that can be made for ramadan.
To make spring rolls we need vegetable stuffing and chicken added into it. I have shared the procedure of stuffing as well as the procedure to make chicken spring rolls sheets.
Important points to make chicken spring rolls:
- Here, in this recipe I have made home made spring rolls sheets, these can be made at home quite easily but I would also suggest that these sheets are readily available in markets and need not spend lots of time in making spring roll sheets at home.
- In this recipe, the spring rolls are dipped in beaten egg and coated with bread crumbs but this step is completely optional if one buys ready made sheets to make chicken spring rolls.
- The sheets that are made at home have to be made very carefully and there are chances of the sheet breaking while stuffing and sealing.
- If one is making them in Ramadan, I would suggest to buy the sheets from grocery stores and then just make chicken stuffing or vegetable stuffing at home, add the stuffing into the sheets, fold and seal them and they are ready to be deep fried.
Chicken spring rolls is a wonderful snack delicacy and one should learn the art of folding and sealing the spring roll sheet and if this art is learnt, it is easy to make spring rolls be it veg or non veg.
I have made spring rolls for the very first time and they turned out very well and shall soon be uploading other spring rolls like veg spring rolls as well.
This is an Indo chinese snack recipe where I have made some variations to the recipe such as dipping in egg and coating the roll with bread crumbs.
This is a deep fried snack recipe where it takes in lots of oil and one should strain the rolls out before eating as the rolls will have absorbed lots of oil.
It is better to use an absorbent paper such as tissue paper and place the rolls on the sheets for a while until all the oil from the spring roll is absorbed. Doing so helps in removing excess oil from the rolls completely.
Here, the chicken is first boiled with water, chicken and turmeric water. The chicken is then shredded and used in the stuffing by making use of some shredded veggies, cooking them along with chicken and sauces.
The stuffing should be focussed well as the rolls are totally tasted delicious only if the cooked stuffing is yummy.
