How to Make African Egg Rolls

African Egg Rolls are basically boiled eggs that are wrapped in the dough and deep-fried immediately.Deep-fried until crisp, it becomes a fantastic African appetizer. Delicious served with Sweet Chili sauce.

It’s said that Scotch Eggs were introduced by the British in West African countries. This snack is sold as street food in West Africa (like in Nigeria, this snack is called Nigerian Egg Rolls

The ingredients used for this recipe are simple and easy to find in any grocery store around you.

 

RECIPE TIPS

Do not wrap all the eggs at once except you are ready to fry them right away. Only wrap as you fry. If you do otherwise, the dough around the egg will continue to rise. This will cause the dough to lose its snug fit around the egg by the time you fry.

The Egg Rolls should be fried on medium heat. Frying on a high heat will prevent the Egg Roll from cooking on the inside.

Use enough Oil to deep fry in other to get the best result.

You can also bake this if you choose to. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown. But the Egg Roll will not be as soft on the inside as the deep fried one.
