  • Apply flour paste at end and seal it properly.
  • Cover them with plastic wrap or damp cloth as they dried out so fast.
  • Heat up oil and fry them in hot oil for 2- minutes on medium flame and serve it hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
  • TIPS:
  • Good spring roll wrappers are found in Asian markets. These are thin, fry up to a shatteringly thin crispy spring roll. Do not buy spring roll wrappers that you find in regular supermarkets near the produce section. They are so thick and chewy. You don’t want your spring rolls to be like that.
  • If the wrappers dry out and are stiff, you can put a few wrappers on a plate, cover with a damp towel and microwave on medium for 10 seconds. The wrappers will soften up.
  • Enjoy it hot.
