  • seeds mix
  • salt and peppper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  8. Pour approximately 2-3 inches of oil into a deep pot.
  9. Heat the oil and fry 3-4 egg rolls at a time. Don’t forget to turn them on both sides, until golden brown all over (approximately 3 minutes). Don’t overcook them!
  10. Drain them on paper towels, then serve with soy sauce or any dip you prefer.

Notes

If you usually don’t consume pork meat, use ground chicken instead.

If you prefer to bake your egg rolls, you can coat them with cooking spray and bake them at 425 degrees F for 15-20 minutes (or until browned and crispy).
