#KFB Foodie Talk! How to make Nigerian spring rolls

Two weeks ago, we introduced the #KFB Foodie Talk column for Ladies!
This column is handled by Chief cook, Dobby of – she’s a culinary enthusiast with a flair for Local Cuisines in
Nigeria and around the globe.
Today’s foodie talk is “How to make Nigerian spring rolls” :).
Spring roll is a light, Simple yet
elegant snack which could be placed in the Nigerian Small chops Category. For
the filling, you could use just about anything such as vegetables, chicken,
beef, noodles e.t.c. If you are making vegetable spring rolls, you could
lightly steam the vegetables to be filled into the pastry.

For me, I prefer
slicing my vegetables very thinly and filling it into the spring roll pastry
before frying. This is because I like my vegetables fresh and not soggy as is
the case with most pre-packed springrolls. Here’s a step by step guide on how
to make spring rolls at home with Homemade spring roll wrap.
