Samosa and Spring Roll

Samosa and spring roll

I love samosas but making them from scratch takes way too much time. So I cheat and make a samosa and spring roll! These samosas are super crunchy and come together fast!

Note about spring roll wrappers: You can find frozen spring roll wrappers at most Asian supermarkets. I always keep a pack in my freezer because they are also great for desserts!

I use spring roll wrappers to make these amazing Sweet and Crunchy Banana Spring Roll Desserts.
