After sharing the spring roll wrappers recipe, in this post I will share how to make spring rolls. If you have the wrappers ready, then making spring rolls is not difficult and quite easy.

For this recipe You can also use store brought wrappers. if you are using the wrapper recipe which I had shared, then note that they can be fried only. If you bake them, then the edges become chewy and dense. For the homemade wrappers, have a look at this link → Spring roll wrappers.

The veggie filling recipe makes around 24 to 30 small to medium sized spring roll. The filling has noodles in it. If you want you can skip the noodles altogether or reduce the amount. You can also add bean sprouts in the stuffing. If you are a vegan then you don’t need to make any change in this recipe as its a vegan spring rolls recipe.

You can serve vegetable spring rolls hot with red chili sauce or red chili garlic chutney or tomato ketchup Or momos chutney. You can also serve them with schezwan sauce.

How to make spring rolls

1. First cook 75 grams noodles as per package instructions. Add the noodles in hot boiling water and cook them. Adding noodles is optional and you can skip them. If skipping noodles, then begin from step 5.

2. The noodles should be cooked well.

5. Chop the veggies in thin long strips. For cabbage and carrot, you can shred them. Slice the green bell pepper/capsicum in thin strips. French beans you can slice them very thinly, diagonally. Chopping takes time, so you can also use a food processor to chop the veggies. please note you can use your choice of veggies.

Method 1 – making veg spring rolls

1. Now take one spring roll wrapper and place it on your work surface. If you are using the Spring roll wrapper recipe which I have posted, then keep the cooked side facing you. Make sure that the spring roll wrappers are at room temperature before using them. with your fingertips, apply the sealing paste on the edges of the wrapper.

10. Then bring the open side on top of the roll. Press gently and seal it. While working with the wrappers, use light force from your hands, otherwise they may break. if there is any small tear then just spread some of the batter on it to close it.

Now place all the veg spring rolls with the sealed edges facing down on a plate. Your hands will become messy when stuffing the spring rolls.

Deep frying spring rolls

1. Heat oil at the deep frying temperature (180 to 190 degrees celsius). Gently slid on spring roll. If the oil is not hot enough, then the spring rolls absorb oil and become soggy.

  7. What is sealing paste?

    • aparna, sealing paste is the same paste made with corn starch and water. i have mentioned in the recipe card.

  8. hello mam,,,wanna try this recipe…can we make it without noodles ?or plz tell me the proper way to get the non sticky noodles…and can we bake them ?if yes plz let me know the temperature and time also,,,,,

    • shuchi, you can make without noodles. even if you add noodles in the filling, trust me they are not sticky. baking with the homemade wrappers i have posted won’t work. if using store brought wrappers, then bake at 180 degrees celsius for 15 to 20 minutes. just lightly brush the wrappers with oil all baking and bake in a greased tray.

  9. nice recipi

  10. Nice recipe and nice explanation with pictures.

  13. V nicely xplained wit pics

    • thankyou kusum 🙂

  14. Very Nicely explained

    • thankyou padmashri 🙂

  15. We avoid cabbage due to presence of insects, can we replace it by something else in this recipe without compromising the taste?

    • neera, skip cabbage and add more of spring onions, carrots, sprouts and french beans. you can also add baby corn. another option is to use cauliflower. but here also you will need to blanch the cauliflower to get rid of the insects, if any.

  16. Can u please post wheat waffles recipe?

    • krusha have taken your request for wheat waffles on our file thankyou.

  17. They are absorbing oil n bcame soggy tried 2 times

    • fry on a high flame neha. then they won’t become soggy. also the spring roll wrappers have to be at room temperature. if not at room temperature, then they absorb a lot of oil.

  18. I tried these yesterday n me n my husband just loved it. They tune out to delicious.. my husband is a foodie n loves to eat but he is very conscious about his health so he generally avoids eating outside.. so i try to make his favorite food @ home ..the way you explain step wise recipe with pictures is appreciable. Wonderful food. Just keep up the good work 🙂5 stars

    • pleased to know this deveta 🙂 and glad you liked the springrolls recipe. god bless you and thankyou for your kind words.

  19. just love d way u explain the method… can u also suggest snacks/breakfasts to gain weight…

    • thanks ruchi. one tried and tested formula for gaining weight is to have mango milkshake. banana milkshake is also good, but as per ayurveda the combination of banana and milk is incompatible and makes the system sluggish. so i won’t suggest banana milk shake. though you can make banana milk shake with almond milk. even dry fruit milkshake is good. have a healthy breakfast of rotis & sabzi or parathas, which are roasted in a bit of ghee.

  20. Can we fry it earlier and serve it latter.like half an hour before , before guest arrives

    • yes you can.

  21. It’s too delicious.Love it:-)

    • thankyou zoya 🙂

  22. Mam i am a great fan of ur recipies and always try all ur recipies.but mam i have a request that mam pls send us recipies of “daulat ki chaat” a very delicious indian sweet pls mam i request for this.

    • thankyou so much uday also have taken your request for daulat ki chaat recipe on our file :

  23. We made it today…, It was amazing and delicious.., But when we sealed itand fried it..the lower part of the sealed part started breaking..and the filling started to come out..why did this happen?5 stars

    • fine. if the closed part is sealed well, then the dough does not break while frying. when i made, not a single spring roll broke in the oil. just dab some paste on the sealed edges while frying.

  24. you are welcome bipasha and thankyou for trying them 🙂

  25. Dear Dasanna, turned out awesome. Did it with noodles and it turned out much nicer and less oil absorption than the restaurant ones. Thanks for the details step by step recipes always . God bless . DK
