Spring rolls are fiery, feisty and full of decadence
India's proximity with China has led to many cultural exchanges over decades of time. The travellers who came to India also brought with them a treasure of Chinese recipes. A lot of these recipes were given an Indian twist and this mishmash paved way for Indo-Chinese cuisine. These dishes are fiery, feisty and full of decadence. One of our most beloved delicacies is vegetarian spring rolls. Deep-fried maida rolls, stuffed with a whole lot of spices and veggies. The Indo-Chinese appetiser is so widely popular that you may even find it in North Indian and South Indian restaurants sometimes. It is one of the first things we order, whenever we are ordering in. But not anymore.
