    • Nky Lily Lete
      March 25, 2016 / 3:14 pm

      Hi esther, always let it cool completely before packaging, so that moisture from the heat won't make the skin soft, especially wen working with spring rolls.

      Maybe you filled the spring roll too much before sealing and frying… next time just add a little of the filling .

    This is by far, the best 9ja recipe site I have thankfully stumbled upon.There are a lot of 9ja recipes online but most of the time they go like this: " add flour", without the precise amount, or add ginger to taste.I havent tried all the recipes but even the pictures show me, yes, this is exactly how I remeber the look of e.g. the Nigerian Fried Rice . Great Job. Brings back the taste, smell and memories of good old Nigeria. A huge God Bless 2 u, out of diaspora. 🙂

        Thanks ma’am for the nice job. I tried out the recipe on samaso but got just 7pieces. I don’t know if I didn’t get the measurements well because I used cup not scale. I converted the measurements to cup. Please can you try telling me the measurement in cups? Thank you.
