Of course there are several varieties and ways to make eggrolls, but this recipe is for the type of eggroll that I usually make
The only ingredient that I think you might have trouble obtaining is the curry powder, but you can get that at any indian grocery
store. As far as the wrappers are concerned, you can get those at any asian markets (Menlo is the brand that I use because they wrap really well!)
Serving size – about 60 eggrolls
2 pkgs menlo wrappers
8-9 mid-sized potatoes
1/2 cup chopped celantro
1/2 cup chopped onions
2 pkgs ground chicken
2 tspns finely chopped/smashed garlic
2 1/2 tspns curry powder (masala)
about 2 tspns salt to taste
1/2 tspn ground red pepperor less =)
Start off by peeling and cutting the potatoes into small pieces
Wash and drain, pour potates into med sized pot. Add 1/2 cup water, sprinkle some red pepper, and salt. Add 1/2 tspn of garlic let
cook in a covered pot over low/medium heat meanwhile. start cooking the ground chicken adding 1/2 cup of water, sprinkle red pepper and salt. Also add 1/2 tspn of garlic.
Cook until well done/drain excess fat.
Check on the potatoes. They’re done when the water has been dried out and the potatoes are nice and tender.
MIXTURE (find a LARGE bowl)
add potatoes, and you can mash them if you like, or you can keep whole. Add the chicken. Add in the onions, and celantro. Distribute the curry powder evenly. Add the rest of the red pepper that you have not used. Add in 1 tspn of salt. Add 1tspn of garlic. Mix WELL. Mixture is officially done. EASY huh! You can add other spices if you wish to, or any vegetables. Sometimes when I want to add vegetables I use the frozen package of mixed vegetables ex(peas&carrots) and saute and then add to my mixture. But like I said, you can add anything you WANT.
rolling them is easy, just separate the wrappers make sure you don’t keep them out from the package for a long time, because they do get dry sometimes and hard to roll without the pastry splitting.
Just put a little portion of the mixture in once corner of the wrapper, roll tightly about two times, add some water or scrambled egg to the remaining three corners, fold in the two sides and then tightly roll the rest of the way. EASY!
