Spring Rolls Recipe
All you need to make homemade spring rolls are phyllo pastry, available in the freezer at most supermarkets, chicken mince or boneless chicken, spring onions, mix veg, seasoning and soy sauce. Serve with a sweet chilli sauce or any of your favourite dipping sauces.
These spring rolls can be air fried as well as deep fried. When using the air fry method, defrost slightly, brush your spring rolls lightly with oil and bake at 200°C in a pre-heated air fryer until golden brown and crispy, approximately 5 minutes a side.

Chicken and Corn Quiche – Salwaa Smith – Cape Malay Cooking & Other Delights
With Ramadaan fast approaching I thought I’d share with you my quick and easy quiche recipe. Mini quiches can be made in advance and stored for up to 3 months in the freezer. My mini quiche recipe is a brilliant and tasty way of using left over cooked chicken. Use polony, fish or shredded meat as an alternative.
Makes one large quiche or 24 mini quiches
3 extra large eggs
2 deboned chicken breast, cooked and diced
1 small onion
100g grated Cheddar cheese
1 cup sweet corn
500g puff pastry
Salt and pepper to taste
100ml fresh cream
A sprinkle of dried herbs
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Lightly grease a baking tin/Pyrex with butter
In a bowl, mix the eggs, chicken pieces, onion, corn, cheese, cream, salt and pepper with a fork until mixed together well.
Roll the pastry to fit your Pyrex. Line your dish with the pastry, cutting the excess pieces off or line your muffin tin or foil cases with pastry using a cookie cutter or glass to fit.
Spoon the chicken mixture on top of the pastry. Top with extra cheese, optional. Sprinkle the dried herbs on top. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
