Hi my dear ones......Hope you had a great weekend. Today I have a delicious snack recipe to share with you. After Uzhunnu vada (no baking powder) and diabetic friendly Oat meal crackers, this is another promising tea time snack.
One fine evening, we visited our cousin aunty and she had given us hot chicken spring rolls. It was simply awesome and she shared the recipe. On that very day itself, it came inside my mind to give it a try. Thank God! that "time" came now only as I was in a hibernation mode those days.........
Chicken spring rolls can be altered as veg spring rolls or any meat spring rolls as per your fillings, just like empanadas. First step is to prepare the filling and then do the pan cakes so that the spring rolls will be ready soon.
