The Nigerian Egg Roll is a popular Nigerian snack made by wrapping an egg in a mass of dough and deep-fried.

This African snack is a healthy Nigerian delicacy similar to scotch egg, however, instead of sausage meat, the cooked egg is wrapped in flour dough.

  • Knead the dough for a few seconds to a minute more before dividing it into six balls.
  • Flatten each dough ball on the palm of your hand, place an egg in the center of the flattened dough, and tightly wrap the dough around each egg.

Important Notes on Recipe for Nigerian Egg Roll
  • Do not wrap all of the eggs at once unless you are ready to fry them straight away. Only wrap when frying. Otherwise, the dough surrounding the egg will continue to rise. By the time you fry the dough, it will have lost its close fit around the egg.
  • Cook the Egg Rolls over medium heat. Cooking the Egg Roll on high heat will prevent it from cooking on the inside. Don’t bother, as long as the oil is not cold, the egg roll will not become soggy.
  • Use enough oil to deep fry to achieve the best results. You may also bake this, however, the Egg Roll will not be as soft on the inside as the deep-fried version.
