Spring Rolls (Indian Chinese)

Standard

Spring rolls are one of the most popular snacks in Indian chinese cuisine.  Vegetables and chicken or only vegetables seasoned lightly are wrapped and rolled in a sheet of large wontons and are “Deep fried”. And my take again on this is I “air fry” it.  Crispy, crunchy and healthy spring rolls to be enjoyed guilt free!

Threaded chicken

Standard

Threaded chicken is a typical chinese (Indian Chinese) starter. It is chicken wrapped with either fresh soft noodles or one can boil regular noodles and then wrap it to fry. My take on this dish is I don’t deep fry it. I spray it with oil and “air fry ” it using the air fryer.  I feel the results are much better since minimal oil is used. The chicken remains soft and succulent while the noodles crispy and perfectly goes home made Schezwan sauce. (Recipe posted earlier)
