  1. Can we fold the spring roll sheet with noodles in the morning and fry them at night? Will the sheets turn soggy?

    • you can do this way. but when frying do ensure that the edges are sealed well. if you refrigerate, then let the rolls come to room temperature before frying.

  2. Your recipes are the only ones which I follow step by step as it is and know the result is gonna be perfect!! I love the recipes and have been following them for a long time and now my mother has also started following your recipes only!! Just amazing work!!

  8. Hello Dassana Ma’am,
    Thank you for the recipe. It looks fantastic. I have been following your page and trying your recipes for quite sometime now.
    I have a question: Is it possible to make steamed spring rolls instead of fried ones using this recipe? or the wraps would become very soggy due to steaming?

    Thank you 🙂4 stars

    • no ariana. these are not maggi noodles. they look like them, but they are not maggi noodles. i don’t use maggi noodles at all, though i have got many requests to add some maggi noodle recipes.

  9. As per ur suggestion, tried it with just little bit of tomato sauce, and result was simply superb!! Also thanks for posting urad kachori recipe!

  10. I tried this recepie today, with homemade wrappers . I was a bit sceptical, I thought they might open while frying, but they came out fantastic. Really great and easy to follow recipes. In fact all your recepies that I have tried so far, have been finger licking good. Can’t thank you enough!

  11. I have been trying ur recipes for years now.. and they all turn out superb!! thankyou!! now wish to try dis one. just one thing, can we replace soy sauce wid smthing else?

    • thanks tanu. just skip it. or if you use schezwan sauce, then you can add schezwan sauce, but the taste will be spicy. you can also add tomato ketchup, but with tomato ketchup, the taste will be sweet. add the amount of sauce as per your requirements.

  12. Hi dassana mam, am from nigeria nd a fan of Indian snacks, I tried ur spring rolls recipe nd it’s came out perfectly. coz U explained it sooo nice and simple. Thanks a million times, May Allah bless you and your family.

  13. Hi
    I am silent fallower of your blog.your recipes are simple and delicious.
    I tried many of your recipes..simply awesome!

    How about making spring rolls for larger quantities, is it possible to half-fry and freeze it for a day..so that we can deep fry next day for next day..let me know!

    Thank u

    • thank you ranjini. what you suggest is possible. you can easily half fry. when you half fry, just make sure that the cover does not get browned. the outer cover should be cooked and white. pale brown is also fine. next day you can deep fry.
