Vegetable spring rolls baked

Recently I won a Bajaj air fryer in Mother’s recipe contest and shared the pictures on my Facebook & Google plus pages. Some of my readers told me to post some airfryer recipes. I tried french friesBitter gourd chips, Lady’s finger fries and bread rolls in my air fryer. Everything came out very well but I couldn’t post them here as everything vanished even before I click.

Yesterday evening I tried vegetable Spring rolls using store bought spring roll pastry sheets for the first time. I baked a few in air fryer and deep fried the remaining to compare the results. I prepared a simple and easy vegetable stuffing using cabbage, carrot and capsicum. I made everything quickly and finished clicking before Raksha and Sendhil came home. Believe me, I loved the air fryer version more than the deep fried ones. Air fried ones were very very crispy compared to the other. Moreover its crispness was maintained for long time. Sendhil came 2 hours after I made the spring rolls. Even then they were crispy. I think you can make the same using convection oven too.

I was very happy that I served him a low calorie,oil less evening snack recipe. Friends, if you have any plans to buy an air fryer, just go for it without any hesitation. I am sure you won’t regret for the buy. These spring rolls can be served as a starter for small birthday parties and family functions. Everything can be prepared ( including rolling) well in advance and refrigerated. So here you go, my first recipe using air fryer – Crispy Veg Spring rolls !

  • In a wide bowl, take the maida or corn flour and add some water to make a cream like paste.
  • Now the spring roll sheet must be ready to use. Take a sheet and cut into 4 if you want to make small sized spring rolls. Cover the remaining sheets with a wet cloth to avoid drying. If you want big spring rolls as in the picture, no need to cut the sheet.

  • Place a tbsp of stuffing in one corner of the sheet. Roll it tight and fold the sides as shown in the picture. If you don’t roll it tight, spring roll becomes flat.
  • Apply the corn flour paste in the other corner and stick it. Repeat the same process with all the sheets and arrange them in a plate.

    Set the timing to 20 minutes and temperature to 180c.Bake it for 10 minutes. Remove the basket and flip the spring rolls to bake the other side. Bake for the remaining 10 minutes and check the color of spring rolls. If it remains white, bake it for another 2-3 minutes or more. Remove and serve hot ! It stays crispy for long time. So you can store the baked spring rolls in the air fryer basket till you serve.

  • Do not keep less stuffing and roll it tight. Keep the stuffing according to the size of sheet.
  • To make the stuffing more spicy, add some chilli sauce.
  • Jain readers can skip the onions, garlic and use more cabbage. There won’t be much difference in taste.
