EGG ROLL

 EGG ROLL.


A deep-fried Chinese pastry of flour and eggs that contains a variety of ingredients, such as minced vegetables, meat, herbs, and spices that are wrapped inside the pastry and served as an appetizer. Over the years, egg rolls and spring rolls have become the same item in many countries. However, the traditional spring rolls are typically encased in a lighter, more delicate pastry wrap and are smaller than egg rolls, but the size of spring rolls has also changed over the years, becoming larger and more like egg rolls in size.


INGREDIENTS

2 Cups Flour

1 Egg

1 Tsp Baking powder

1/4 Tsp Salt

1/2 Tsp Nutmeg

2 Tbsp Margarine

8-9 Tbsp Water

5 Eggs Boiled

2 Tbsp Sugar


INSTRUCTIONS

-In a large bowl, mix the Flour, Baking powder, Salt, Sugar, and Nutmeg

-Use your fingers to blend the Margarine into the flour until it’s crumbly.

-Add the beaten egg and mix it. The dough should look dry at this point.

-Begin to introduce the water a little at a time and work the dough till the dough is soft and sticky but still workable.

-work the dough for about a minute then cover it and let it rest for about 15 to 20 minutes.

-Work the dough again for a couple of seconds to a minute and divide it into 5.

-Tightly wrap each of the dough around each Egg.

-Fry on medium heat turning over and over again until it’s golden brown.

-Serve your Egg Roll hot or warm. Enjoy!


PLEASE NOTE:

'Do not wrap all the eggs at once except you are ready to fry them right away. Only wrap as you fry. If you do otherwise, the dough around the egg will continue to rise. This will cause the dough to lose its snug fit around the egg by the time you fry.

-The Egg Rolls should be fried on medium heat. Frying on high heat will prevent the Egg Roll from cooking on the inside. Don’t worry the Egg Roll will not get soggy in the Oil as long as the Oil is not cold.

-Use enough Oil to deep fry in other to get the best result.

-You can also bake this if you choose to, but the Egg Roll will not be as soft on the inside as the deep-fried one...🤗
