I love the crunchiness of spring rolls . Making them at home takes very little time and allows me to make the filling to my liking or adapt it to the ingredients I have at the time. Today, we bring you a good recipe for beef rolls, with a touch of curry that makes them delicious in contrast to the sweetness of the brick paste that surrounds them.

The rolls, being so easy to prepare, are a fantastic resource for a quick dinner or a different appetizer. And so that they are also healthier, there is nothing better than cooking them in the air fryer that will leave them just as delicious without using hardly any oil.

As you already know, air fryers, such as the Tefal Actifry Genius, combine hot air with gentle automated movements, as convection ovens do, achieving a result that is very similar to that of traditional frying. In this way we can eat a portion of croquettes or some dumplings, but without the feeling of guilt and the annoying odors that traditional frying causes.

These are two good reasons to cook in a deep fryer without oil, but not the only ones, since it is a great option to prepare an infinite number of varied recipes. It allows you to eat rich, eat varied and eat healthy, as it maintains the nutritional value of food, whether fresh or frozen. In addition, it is so quick and easy to use, that you will not find a better kitchen assistant!

Veal rolls

The recipe that I show you today is very easy to prepare and you will have it ready in a very short time: spring rolls with beef and vegetables with a touch of cilantro. You can see the step by step with the video below.


  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 or 3 carrots
  • A few coriander leaves
  • 125-150 g minced beef
  • Breadcrumbs (1 or 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon ActiFry curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon ActiFry olive oil
  • Brick pasta (a roll or a package of already cut sheets)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 beaten egg


How to prepare the rolls:

  1. Chop or grate the onion and carrot. We can do it with a knife , with a grater or with a mincer , depending on the texture we prefer.
  2. Finely chop the coriander leaves.
  3. In a bowl, mix the minced meat with the onion, carrot, coriander, curry and breadcrumbs, until we see everything well integrated. We splash to taste.
  4. We divide the filling into as many portions as rolls we want to make. In this case we make 9 small rolls, so we will make 9 portions with the filling and we will shape them into an elongated croquette or a roll.
  5. When preparing the rolls, since brick dough dries very quickly, we do it sheet by sheet. We extend the first sheet, brush it with beaten egg, arrange a roll of the filling on it and roll the dough to form the roll.

How to fry the rolls:

  • In fryer without oil:
  1. Once we have the 9 rolls formed, if we are going to fry them without oil, we extract the vat from the Actifry Oil Free Fryer , brush it with a little olive oil and place the rolls so that they are separated. We place the vat in the fryer and program the ROLLS mode (4) and the duration, which will be 20 minutes.
  2. After the time, the rolls will be ready.

  • In a conventional oven: You can make the rolls in the oven with little oil:
  1. Arrange the rolls in a skillet-type iron pan (suitable for the oven) or on an oven tray, apply a jet of oil on top and turn on the oven function up and down at 180 ºC.
  2. Control the rolls constantly and it is important that you rotate them, so that they are made from all sides and above all watch out that they do not overcook or burn. In about 25-30 minutes you will have them done.
  • Rolls in the traditional way, in a frying pan or in a fryer:
  1. Apply a finger and a half of oil in the iron skillet or a high skillet or wok and turn the heat to medium power.
  2. When the oil is hot, add the rolls and let them fry, turning them to make them on both sides.
  3. Remove them with the help of a slotted spoon to drain the oil and ensure that they do not break, and leave them on a plate or dish with kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil. Let rest for a few minutes and serve.

When serving:

  1. We serve accompanied by a salad or some rice and the sauce that we like best, and eat!

How to make spring rolls in an air fryer

If you haven't tried it yet, I encourage you to try frying and all kinds of air fryer recipes. Cooking with the Tefal Actifry is very simple, fast and intuitive. Preparing these rolls has taken us very little time, less than it will take to eat them!

You can vary the recipe depending on what you want to eat or the ingredients you have at home. You can use parsley instead of coriander, make them with chicken or shrimp or only with vegetables, or prepare the rolls with rice wafers if you like them more than brick pasta. The possibilities are as many as you want, but always just as simple, crunchy and quick to prepare. And using almost no oil!
