Air Fryer Spring Rolls: Easy Recipe For A Tasty Appetizer

This spring rolls recipe is one of my favorite Asian recipes.

I had so much fun preparing them, but even more fun eating them!

Spring rolls are a delicious finger food of Chinese cuisine, which over the years has won a place in the hearts of all of us.

Delicious, tasty and enclosed in a crispy fried pastry, spring rolls are truly irresistible.

Originally served on the occasion of the Chinese New Year, these rolls take their name from the period in which this event falls: Spring.

The typical filling of these rolls is made of minced meat and crispy vegetables such as carrots, savoy cabbage and soy sprouts, all flavored with fresh spring onion.

But you can easily make different versions (including vegan and vegetarian) by substituting a few ingredients.

Why Is This Recipe The Best?

They’re easy to make: they look difficult but it’s a really easy recipe to make, even closing them isn’t too much of a task!

They are super delicious: perfect for an Asian dinner, but also for a quick appetizer with friends.

You can cook them 3 ways: in the air fryer, fried or baked. Below I explain all 3 cooking methods.

What Goes In The Spring Rolls?

Spring roll pastry: you can find it in all Asian supermarkets, but also in regular supermarkets. (Below in the recommended products)

Vegetables: I use cabbage, carrot and mushrooms for my spring rolls. But you can be creative with whatever vegetables you like.

Ginger & Garlic: Ginger and garlic can never be missing when I cook Asian. They give the dish a special flavor and slightly spicy.

Spring onion: It should never be missing from spring rolls. It gives a fresh flavor to our spring rolls.

Soy sauce: Combines all the ingredients together. Be sure to use a low sodium soy sauce so you can control the saltiness level.

How To Make The Filling

As I said above you can indulge yourself with the filling.

You can create spring rolls with meat or vegetarian or even vegan.

My filling is very simple.

As vegetables I use cabbage, carrots, mushrooms and spring onions.

In a wok or non-stick frying pan I mince the garlic and ginger, and let it brown in a little oil for about 2 minutes.

After that add the cabbage, carrots and mushrooms that I previously cut into julienne, add the soy sauce and let them  cook for about a couple of minutes.

The result should always be crispy.

Add the spring onion raw and cook rice noodles and put the filling to cool.

How To Fold And Assemble

The closing of the spring rolls is very similar to that of a burrito.

First place a sheet of dough on your work surface with one corner facing you.

About 5cm from the corner form a strip of filling about 7cm long.

Raise the corner to cover the filling.

Fold the two side corners toward the center.

Roll the roll up tightly, when you are almost at the end wet the opposite corner with a little egg, which will seal the roll well. (Video Below)

Tips & Tricks To Make This Spring Roll Recipe

To prepare the filling of the spring rolls we recommend using the Wok because it is able to cook the vegetables at the right point, giving them that typical flavor deriving from stir-frying.
