Stir Fry
Spring Rolls


If you've ever made spring rolls at home, you must be surprised how fun, customizable, and manageable they can be. These golden spring rolls are loved for their crunch and simple but flavorful filling. The filling stir fried in under 10 minutes with just 6 simple ingredients that include freshly shredded cabbage, carrots, chicken, black pepper, chili garlic sauce, and low-sodium soy sauce. They can also become vegetarian friendly by swapping the chicken with frozen or canned green peas or scrambled tofu. I love to prep these in bulk and freeze for a last-minute dinner side or appetizer for parties.  They are delicious enough to enjoy as is or dipped into a sauce of your choice like chili garlic, sweet and sour, or peanut sauce!

Stir Fry Spring Rolls

Servings: 15-16 spring rolls 

Prep Time: 10 minutes 

Cook Time: about 7 minutes

Total Time: 17 minutes

Author: Huma Naz


  • 1 heaping cup of cabbage, shredded

  • 1 heaping cup of carrots, freshly shredded

  • 1 cup of pre-made seasoned chicken breast, shredded (swap in green peas or scrambled tofu for a vegetarian version)

  • 1 tbsp. chili garlic sauce

  • 3 tbsps. low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 25 spring rolls sheets, thawed according to instructions

  • Dough paste to seal the spring rolls-4 tbsp. water and 1 tbsp. flour


  1. Thaw spring roll sheets according to instructions.

  2. Add cabbage, carrots, and chicken in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Toss over chili garlic sauce, soy sauce, and black pepper. Stir fry and combine ingredients well for about 7 minutes or until you notice cabbage and carrots are wilted and cooked down. 

  4. Once cooked, let it cool down for a few minutes and make the dough paste. Add water and flour to a small bowl and mix. 

  5. Peel apart 2 spring rolls sheet at a time and arrange on a flat surface(you will be left with a single sheet at the end that you can use to make the spring roll too). Top the center of each wrapper with 2 spoonfuls of the stir fry filling. Roll up the top point of the sheet over and under the stuffing to lock it in then fold in both left and right sides and finish rolling the spring roll.  Add a small smear of the flour paste to the last corner of the spring roll to glue it shut.

  6. Cook the spring rolls as you like: Lightly fry in oil, bake in the oven(brush the tops and sides with oil and bake for about 25 minutes at 400 degrees F or until golden brown and crisp, shaking pan halfway through), or air fry(380 degrees F for 4-6 minutes or until golden brown)!

Recipe Notes:

  • I like to freeze uncooked/leftover spring rolls in a freezer safe bag to later!
