Egg rolls recipe 

Nigerian Egg roll is a healthy Nigerian snack similar to scotch egg but instead of sausage meat, flour dough is used to wrap the boiled egg.

It is not the same thing as the regular Chinese egg roll which is elongated and looks more like spring rolls.

The Nigerian egg roll gets its circular shape from the boiled egg used in making it. Here’s an easy recipe for you…Enjoy!


To Make Perfect egg rolls you will need :

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp Margarine
  • 8-9 Tbsp Water
  • 5 Eggs Boiled
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar


In a large bowl, mix together the Flour, Baking powder, Salt, Sugar and Nutmeg

Use your fingers to blend the Margarine into the flour until it’s crumbly.

Add the beaten egg and mix together. The dough should look dry at this point.

Begin to introduce the water a little at a time and work the dough till dough is soft and sticky but still workable.

work the dough for about a minute then cover it and let it rest for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Work the dough again for a couple of seconds to a minute and divide it into 5.

Tightly wrap each of the dough around each Egg.

Fry on a medium heat turning over and over again until it’s golden brown.

Serve your Egg Roll hot or warm. Enjoy!

Please note:

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. Don’t worry the Egg Roll will not get soggy in the Oil as long as the Oil is not cold.

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

You can also bake this if you choose to, but the Egg Roll will not be as soft on the inside as the deep fried.
