Chinese spring rolls are a crispy appetizer prepared with a crisp outer pastry and a delicious filling of vegetables or meat. Vegetable spring roll fillings typically consist of green onions, bell peppers, bean sprouts and cabbage.

This easy recipe produces crispy spring rolls that are evenly cooked all over thanks to the air fryer.

I find that baking spring rolls leads to a crunchy top and soft base and deep-frying is much higher in calories.

How to air fry spring rolls from frozen

Follow the same method for vegetable, chicken, shrimp or Vietnamese spring rolls.

Preheat your air fryer to 180C or 350F for 5 minutes.

Brush or spray the spring rolls in oil. For best results, brush generously with oil.

Arrange in a single layer in the air fryer basket. This keeps the pastry crispy rather than becoming soggy.

Air fryer at 180 degrees C or 350 degrees f for 10-12 minutes.

For mini spring rolls, try 180C/350F for 6-7 minutes.

Cooking time will vary between air fryer model and the size of the spring rolls.

If the side corners appear to too brown, lower the heat. Flip over or shake the basket at the half way point and continue cooking.

Serve immediately once cooked.

Spring rolls are best served with your favorite dipping sauce.

My favourite is Thai sweet chili sauce with chopped spring onion.

Soy sauce or a sweet and sour sauce is great too.


Once at room temperature, store leftover spring rolls in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Reheat in the air fryer for a couple of minutes.

Do not refreeze spring rolls than have thawed.


Do I need to thaw spring rolls before air frying?

No. Air fry spring rolls directly from frozen. They tend to stick if thawed first.

How long should I air fry frozen spring rolls?

Air Fry frozen spring rolls for 10 minutes at 180C or 350F. You may need to adjust this time based on your air fryer model or the size of your spring rolls.

Why have my spring rolls not cooked?

There can be many reasons for this. Ensure to preheat your air fryer. If your spring rolls are larger, they may need longer. Temperatures and timings can vary between air fryer models.

Can I cook spring rolls without an air fryer?

Yes, you can bake, deep fry or shallow fry spring rolls. Follow packet instructions for baking spring rolls in the oven (approximately 15 minutes at 180C/350F/Gas 5). To shallow fry, heat oil in a pan and cook on both sides for 3-4 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
