Chicken & Vegetable Rolls

Chicken & Vegetable Rolls ... Deep-fired crispy rolls with chicken and vegetable filling. These delicious and irresistible rolls are the perfect appetizer or snack for Iftar, teatime or any occasion.

Chicken & Vegetable Rolls

Makes :  12

Ingredients :

For Filling :
  • 1 cup peeled and grated carrot
  • 1 cup chopped spring onions, green part only
  • 1 cup finely shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup boiled and shredded chicken
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 tbsp.  soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp.  chilli sauce
  • 1 tsp.  black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp.  salt ( or to taste)
  • 1 tbsp.  oil
For Rolls :
  • 12 Ready-made Roll Patti or spring roll wrappers, thawed if frozen
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Cooking oil, for deep-frying

Method :
  • Heat oil in a pan or wok. Add all the ingredients of filling.
  • Cook on high heat, stirring until vegetables are slightly soft and the mixture is dry.
  • Remove from heat and spread out the mixture on a flat dish and let it cool completely.
  • Place a roll patti or spring roll wrapper on a flat surface, with a corner facing towards you ( like a diamond ).
  • Spoon a heaped tablespoon of filling near the bottom corner ( facing towards you ), then fold left and right corners toward the center.
  • Keep your finger on those edges, bring the bottom corner towards the middle and then roll the patti or wrapper up tightly towards the top corner.
  • Brush the top corner of the wrapper with beaten egg, then continue rolling up to seal and form a tight roll.
  • Repeat with the remaining patti or wrappers and filling.
  • Place seam side down in a single layer on a tray and cover with plastic wrap to prevent the rolls from drying out.
  • Refrigerate until ready to fry. You can also freeze them at this point.
  • Heat oil in a pan or wok for deep-frying.
  • Fry few rolls at a time on medium heat, turning occasionally until golden brown.
  • Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and place them on absorbent paper to remove excess oil.
  • Serve hot with green chutney, ketchup or chilli garlic sauce.
Notes :
  • The filling should be completely cool before making rolls as the hot filling will make the rolls soggy.
  • Make sure to roll the patti or wrapper tightly so there are not are no holes or air pockets. This prevents the filling from falling out while frying the rolls.
  • For freezing the rolls, place them in a single layer on a tray and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Roll patti are 8 x 8 inches square strips made of plain or wholewheat flour.
  • Instead of egg, you can make a paste with 2 tbsp. of plain or wholewheat flour and 1 tbsp. of water in a small bowl.

  12. These look so good. I remember when I made egg rolls a long time ago. I didn't have a food processor and my knife skills were not too good. It took me all day! I wonder what would happen if you spritzed these with vegetabel oil and baked them? I may give that a try and let your know how it works.

    1. Thank you Miz Helen! You're most welcome to have the rolls :)

  26. Egg rolls & spring rolls are my weakness.
    No matter what's wrong, they can always make me happy! & I've NEVER tried making them! I think I'm just a bit afraid of them going wrong? Or perhaps losing their magic happy-inducing-ness? I don't know, but yours look absolutely delicious. I could eat the whole batch! I followed you here from the link party at Watch Out, Martha, by the way. Also, I’d like to invite you to come link up with me at my link party! I’d love it if you could stop by & link up some of your recipes! Here's the link:

    1. Thank you so much Anyonita for visiting & for your nice words. Thanks for the invite to the party, I'll be there :)
