These are not your usual spring rolls. Crispy and delightful for a party, these rolls are filled with paneer, a ginger-garlic paste and sriracha.
Appetizers are my favorite part of a party. Small bites and conversations with a glass of wine is my idea of an evening well spent. If you’re with me then you’re going to love my easy appetizer today. These Spring Rolls are ready in no time. But these are not your average spring rolls. These have a surprise filling inside using Paneer. Yes…paneer. And wait till you hear about the flavors in the paneer.
Sriracha is my all-time favorite condiment and I use it on anything and everything! When I thought of using paneer Sriracha just automatically came to me since I was thinking of an Indo-Oriental flavor combo. The flavors work really well and that kick from the Sriracha is my favorite part of this dish. If you don’t like paneer then Tofu would be a good substitute.
The filling is just sautéed paneer with some onions and green peppers along with sriracha and soy sauce. Store bought Spring/Egg roll wrappers are all you need to stuff the filling in. Just roll them and refrigerate until needed. Deep fry to a crisp golden just before serving. In these cold days anything that’s warm and crispy sounds so appetizing-don’t you agree? This appetizer is sure to please your guests so make a big batch since they will disappear in no time! A tad different from your average spring rolls these paneer stuffed beauties are a tasty treat.
