How to ROLL and egg ROLL?

Aabacus | Sep 24, 2011 01:08 PM

I haven't seen this here and did a search but didn't find anything so if I'm dim I apologize.

I've always wanted to be able to roll my own egg rolls but have never been successful. So, today I decided to invest a little money and experiment.

I shredded a half head of cabbage and about four carrots then mixed them together in a big bowl.

Armed with one package of egg roll wrappers and a heated fryer I attempted to follow what I'd seen done on some YouTube videos.

After all 20 or so wrappers were spent I was able to wrap an egg roll. However, I still am not satisfied.

The egg roll comes out very very loose. Like I'm not stuffing it with enough cabbage but if I try to use more it splits or falls apart during the rolling part of its lifecycle. Also, still am having trouble rolling them to be air tight so I'm always pouring oil out of the egg roll.

Would someone please share their troubleshooting tips for rolling egg rolls?
