My husband hates cabbage, but always thinks egg rolls look delicious.  Then he tried this Indian Potato Spring Rolls Recipe.  It was the perfect marriage.  He’s been asking for them for months & I finally found a recipe to try.  The recipe was on The Food Reference and we really liked it.  We hope you like it too.

What Is A Good Substitute For Asafoetida?

Asafoetida is an herb that is often used in Indian cooking.

Garlic chives are an excellent substitute for asafoetida.

Grating or blending a combination of fresh garlic and fresh onion can also provide much of the flavor that would get from asafoetida.

What Is The Difference Between Spring Roll and Egg Roll?

The main difference between egg rolls and spring rolls is the wrapping.

Spring rolls have thin, often translucent flour wrappers and usually aren’t fried, while egg rolls have thicker, deep-fried wrappings.

Can You Substitute Red Potatoes For Yellow Potatoes?

You can substitute red potatoes for yellow potatoes in many recipes, but not all.

Red potatoes are too waxy to mash very well.

However, you can always use yellow potatoes instead of red.
