Make the Spring Roll sheet

  • First, take a large mixing bowl and add the all-purpose flour or maida. Also, add the cornstarch and salt to taste.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients nicely.
  • To this, add the 2½ cups of water and whisk well until the batter becomes smooth and without any lumps.
  • Next, take a pan and add a tsp of oil. Grease the pan nicely and let it heat.
  • Let the oil heat until it smokes a little.
  • Now, pour one ladleful of the batter into the pan. Swirl and spread it evenly throughout.
  • Keep the flame on low and cook the sheet for about a minute. Make sure not to brown the sheet.
  • After about a minute, flip the sheet on another side. Cook this side until done and without browning.
  • When it is cooked properly, transfer the sheet onto a plate.
  • Continue to do this with the rest of the batter.

Prepare the veggies

  • For the filling start by washing all the veggies nicely and thoroughly.
  • Next, peel the carrot and cut it into 1½ inch juliennes.
  • Chop the capsicum into small pieces and the green beans diagonally.
  • Peel the onion and chop it into small pieces.
  • Chop the cabbage finely.
  • Also, cut the spring onions into thin slices, and finely chop the green chilis and garlic cloves.

If you are using Paneer (optional)

  • For the paneer, cut them into small cubes.
  • Soak them in hot water and salt mixture to soften them.
  • After 10 minutes, take them out and pat them dry.
  • Next, take a frying pan, add some oil, and let it heat until it smokes.
  • Add the paneer cubes gently into the pan and fry them lightly from all the sides. Be careful not to break them.
  • When the color turns a bit golden brown, transfer them onto a kitchen tissue-covered plate.

If you are using Chicken (optional)

  • For the chicken, use the breast piece.
  • Wash the chicken well and then cut them into small pieces are thin strips.
  • Take a pan and add oil.
  • Heat until the oil smokes and then add the chicken pieces or strips.
  • Stir them well and add salt to taste and black pepper powder.
  • Combine everything and cook the chicken until cooked through.
  • When done, transfer them onto a plate for later use.

Prepare the filling

  • Take a kadhai or a wok and add oil.
  • Spread the oil throughout the wok or kadhai and let it smoke a little.
  • Next, add the onion and finely chopped garlic and green chilis.
  • Stir them until the rawness is gone and to this add 2 tbsp spring onion (keep the ½ tbsp to use later)
  • Keep the flame on medium and stir everything for about a minute.
  • Now, add the carrots, green beans, capsicum, and cabbage.
  • Stir everything well.
  • To the veggies add the vinegar, soy sauce, red chili sauce, and salt to taste.
  • Increase the flame to high and toss all the veggies along with the sauces. We want the veggies to soften and not soggy.
  • Toss and cook them for about a minute and a half and keep on stirring. Make sure not to burn them as the flame is on high.
  • At this point add the fried paneer or the chicken if you are using it. (Skip this step if not using).
  • Take a taste test and add if anything is needed.
  • When done, transfer them into a bowl.

Prepare the Spring Roll

  • When everything is prepared, assemble the spring roll.
  • Take an already prepared sheet and spread it on a flat surface.
  • Place a tbsp and half of the prepared filling on one end of the sheet leaving a bit of space at the end.
  • Now, roll and fold it once, and then bring in and fold the two sides of the sheet.
  • Get a good grip and roll the entire thing. At the end, spread some maida paste and seal everything nicely.
  • Do this with all the sheets and keep them aside.

Fry the Spring Roll

  • Next, take a deep frying pan and add a generous amount of oil to deep fry the spring rolls.
  • Let the oil heat until it smokes a little.
  • To this, gently lower the spring rolls and fry them from all sides until golden brown. Keep the flame on medium.
  • Do this in batches and when done transfer them onto a kitchen tissue-covered plate. This will soak off the excess oil.


  • Garnish the crispy Spring Rolls with half a tbsp of spring onions and a bit of black pepper.
