Roll My Eggs

My family is all about egg rolls when it comes to Ramadan, I mean who wouldn’t want something that is deep fried and stuffed with meat?

 

IMG_0483 To start off I used TYJ Spring Roll Pastry, any Indian/ Asian grocery store

And my mom made a mixture of spices, ground beef and cabbage

To start off with making the eggrolls you need some egg yolk to help seal everything together

IMG_0464 And a pastry brush to add it to the pastry but I am pretty sure you can just use your fingers

to start off I removed one sheet of the pastry, which was hard to peel off but I managed and placed it diagonally, facing me.

I used the pastry brush dipped in yolk and outlined the edges of the pastry sheet

We used a tablespoon of the cooked beef and cabbage mixture and placed it at the tip closest to me.IMG_0468

Finally you can start to roll! Keep rolling from the tip with the meat to 1/2 way up the pastry sheet.

Once you have done a single roll with the edges feel free to tuck in any extra pastry and leave an open flap.

IMG_0476 On the open flap add an extra brush of egg yolk and roll shut!

This should be your final product!

IMG_0480 Easy, right?

The enjoy your egg rolls, simply deep fry them!

My dad prefers to have his baked so we just fold the pastry sheet in half with the filling on the inside so that it is easy to bake!

Do you see why they are called egg rolls? Because you just roll up the egg!

    YUM- when you bake the egg rolls do you need to add more oil or anything to them? Will they still come out crispy? I can’t have deep fried anything anymore so I bake all my goodies now.

    I made egg rolls tonight! I baked them because, basically, I don’t need more oil/butter/fat in my diet. I just used leftover chicken and some other leftovers from the fridge…so really they were baked summer rolls. Miss you woman!!

    Never tried making my own. Always thought it was more difficult. I guess it’s not that bad after all. Thanks for sharing, I’m gonna have to try this.

    These look amazing! Love the pictures, it’s a great explanation. I would love to bookmark this and save it but it’s missing one of the most important parts of the recipe, the filling! Maybe I just can’t find it :(

      You can put any mixture of cooked veggies and meat in it. This reminds me that I should post an updated version of this recipe :)
