Best Fish Rolls Recipe

What are these fish rolls?

Fish Rolls are a simple type of snack. A snack with a delicious filling in the middle with crispy sides. One of the most popular dishes in Sri Lanka. These delightful fish rolls can be found and tasted everywhere, from small restaurants to five-star hotels. There are three main shapes that make this, namely the cylindrical shape we made today, the triangular shape, and the rectangle shape.

And these rolls can be seen in different flavors. Some such forms are given below.

  • Egg rolls
  • Vegetable rolls
  • Chicken rolls

The real taste of these rolls is a bit spicy. Rolls are a snack eaten by everyone, young and old alike. I also had the same problems as a first-timer. Therefore, I thought I would share with you the problems that came to me and how I resolved them.

Not being able to fold the pancake into shape. The thickness of the pancake increases as the mixture that makes the pancake thickens. In such a case, add a little more water to the pancake mix and stir. In this way, the thickness of the pancake mixture can be reduced. Adding too much butter to the pan can cause the pancake to become thick. Add butter only to cover the surface. If possible, use a nonstick pan.

Although the rolls are made with a delicious filling, the taste is bland. The reason for this is that the pancake we make does not have enough salt. So make the pancake batter and taste the salt.

The rolls will absorb a lot of oil. Make sure that the oil is heated well before frying. Add a piece of bread crumbs to the hot oil. When the oil is well heated and it should bubble, now you can start frying the rolls. Fry in small batches.
