You can deep fry them straight away, or freeze them to cook later. If you are going to freeze them, it is best to place them on a piece of baking parchment (on a plate).

Once they are frozen, you can put them loose in a resealable bag. This makes it easier to prepare as many as you want, and they won't stick together. Enjoy!

Homemade Dutch flames (hot and spicy spring rolls): frequently asked questions

Where can I buy spring roll wrappers?

You can buy spring roll wrappers at most supermarkets. Different sizes are available at Asian grocers.

Why are the commercially prepared flames I've had in the Netherlands orange?

The spring roll wrappers are dyed at the factory to achieve this signature look.

What kind of peppers are best to use when making flames?

We used fresh red peppers for these flames, but you can use whatever types you like. Always make sure that the filling is well spiced as deep-frying reduces some of the flavours.
