Making Homemade Egg Rolls - A How-to

Egg rolls are definitely one of the most popular types of food within the Asian cuisine. If you enjoy eating egg rolls, you may be interested in learning how to make them at home. It is really quite an easy thing to do if you know how to follow simple directions. When you make egg rolls yourself, you can include the ingredients that you like the most and leave out what you don’t care for. This means that you can have all veggie filled egg rolls, or you can add chicken, pork or shrimp. Choose your meat, or go vegetarian with it. Here are some guidelines for making delicious egg rolls from the comforts of your own home.

Gather Your Ingredients

The first thing that you will want to do is get together everything that you will need. You will want to look in your local grocery store on the international aisle and find egg roll skins. You will also want to have vegetable oil, garlic, bean sprouts, green onions, bamboo shoots, soy sauce, corn starch, grated ginger, sugar and salt on hand. You can leave out any of the veggies that you do not prefer, and only use what you like. This will ensure that you have egg rolls that you will enjoy.

Make the Filling

Once you have everything that you will need, you will start to make the filling. You will use the meat of your choice, and cook it well. Stir fry it with oil, then add the bean sprouts, green onions, and bamboo shoots and continue to cook it until it is mixed well. This should take about five minutes at the most. Once you do this, you will then want to mix together soy sauce, ginger, sugar and salt. Stir it all together, and you will have a great filling for your egg rolls.

Fill the Egg Roll Skins

After you have made the filling, you will start to put it in the egg roll skins. You will fold it in such a way that it is completely enclosed. The best way to do this is by starting out with a point of the skin facing you. Place some filling on the skin, then fold the corners at the top and bottom inward first. Then you will wrap the other corners around the roll. Once you have done this, you will be ready to deep fry them.

Deep Frying the Egg Rolls

Before you start to fry the egg rolls, you will want to make sure that the vegetable oil is hot enough. You will do this by ensuring that it is at least 365 degrees. You will only want to cook two or three of the egg rolls at a time, to ensure that they all get the proper cooking time. You will leave them in there for only about two or three minutes. Once they are done, you will put them on a napkin to cool them off and let the extra oil soak into the napkin.
