TO ASSEMBLE

  1. Place one wrapper on the counter with one corner pointing toward you.
  2. Spoon a good amount of filling across the lower third of the wrapper, leave at least one inch between the filling and each edge of the wrapper.
  3. Fold the lower third of the wrapper over the filling, and gently pull back to tuck into a tight bundle.
  4. Fold the side of wrapper over filling, roll up and wet the remaining corner with beaten egg, and continue to roll up. Press edges firmly to seal.
  5. Place on a container, seam side down, and repeat with remaining wrapper and filling.
  6. After all filling’s gone, put egg rolls in the freezer for at least four hours or overnight before frying.

TO FRY

  1. Heat deep-fryer over medium heat
  2. Once the oil’s reached a good temperature, deep-fry egg rolls by batch, until golden brown on all sides.
  3. Transfer on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  4. Transfer on a serving plate and serve with dipping sauce (recipe below) or dipping sauce of your choice.
  5. Enjoy!
