Ramadan special series recipe 21 – Chicken Spring Roll

Chicken spring rolls is one of the popular Iftar special snack in Malabar. Similar to Chinese chicken spring rolls, this role is small enough to enjoy in 4 bites. Only the filling for these spring rolls are made with Indian spices. It was my favourite iftar snack. Hope you all enjoy having this yummy and crispy snack!
