  • 10 egg roll wrappers
  • 200g ground pork or chicken
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Sweet and sour sauce or chili sauce for dipping


  1. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a skillet, heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat.
    • Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
    • Add the ground pork or chicken to the skillet and cook until browned and cooked through.
    • Stir in the shredded cabbage and grated carrot, and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the vegetables are slightly softened.
    • Season the filling with soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine.
    • Remove the skillet from the heat and let the filling cool slightly.
  2. Wrap the Egg Rolls:
    • Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface with one corner pointing towards you, resembling a diamond shape.
    • Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the filling onto the center of the wrapper.
    • Fold the bottom corner of the wrapper over the filling, tucking it snugly underneath.
    • Fold the left and right corners of the wrapper towards the center.
    • Brush the top corner of the wrapper with water to seal the egg roll, then roll it up tightly towards the top corner to seal completely.
    • Repeat the process with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  3. Fry the Egg Rolls:
    • In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat vegetable oil to 350°F (180°C).
    • Carefully place the egg rolls in the hot oil, seam side down, in batches to avoid overcrowding.
    • Fry the egg rolls for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy, turning occasionally for even cooking.
    • Use a slotted spoon to remove the cooked egg rolls from the oil and drain them on paper towels.
  4. Serve:
    • Serve the crispy egg rolls hot with sweet and sour sauce or chili sauce for dipping.
    • Enjoy your delicious homemade egg rolls as an appetizer or snack!
  5. Tips:
    • Make sure the oil is hot enough before frying the egg rolls to ensure they become crispy and golden brown.
    • You can customize the filling by adding other ingredients such as mushrooms, bean sprouts, or water chestnuts.
    • Leftover egg rolls can be stored in the refrigerator and reheated in the oven for a crispy texture.
