"Battered" Egg Roll Recipe?

Does anyone know what I"m talking about? I don't really care for the 'wrapped' ones. I remember as a youngster having these greasy battered type egg rolls that were delicous! Red sticky sweet and sour sauce! I'm sure they're a nightmare to make, but I'm willing to give it a try! If you can direct me, or give me some ideas? Maybe batter the wrapper once it's filled? I haven't had to much luck surfing the net, as they all seem to involve wonton wrappers.

Thank you in advance

TnTs Mom

Never heard of a "battered" ones...sound very yummy however. You might try a spring roll wrap...then batter and fry. It might work!!

Have Fun!!

I would think this would keep the wrapper from getting crispy...unless you would fry it without the batter first, let cool, coat with batter and fry a second time.

There was a sushi restaurant in california that made what they called, "The Godzilla Lava Roll" It used a battered wonton roll for the outside. And as Bowlingshirt mentioned, it wa fied, then dipped, then refried. For brief moments, to keep the crab, ahi, peppers and pepper sauce inside from cooking.

How did they turn out? Was there anything you would change if you did it again?

Regional Chinese Spring/Egg Rolls

Each region in China has its own version. Springrolls and Egg rolls are the same thing from different regions.

The dry rice paper fried spring rolls are Cantonese is origin.
Below are two different versions. I think the Battered Spring roll(This is a North western China style spring roll) at the bottom is the version that "TnTs Mom" was looking for.

I have had the Battered spring roll version and it is really great. Very soft in the middle but with crisp peel'able batter, yum!
For the Yunnan(South West China) version, I have added a pancake wrap recipe.

[COLOR="rgb(255, 140, 0)"]Yunnan Style Spring Rolls (春卷, chunjuan)[/COLOR]

The Yunnan version of the ubiquitous spring roll is generally made larger than its Cantonese cousin. It is also made using a thicker and more porous pastry which gives it a more deep-fried flavour.

1/2 bunch (approximately 100 grams) chives
250 grams bean shoots
1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon salt
100 grams minced pork (vegetarians can use chopped tofu and/or mushrooms as a substitute)
1 tablespoon cornflour

oil for deep frying
30 pre made spring roll rounds -These rounds can be made at home with wheat flour, egg white and water or purchased in a local market.

Part one Preparing the filling
Fill a wok halfway with water and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, add chives. Boil for around 30 seconds to blanche the chives and then remove. Chop the chives into 2 cm lengths. Add bean shoots to the water, boil for one minute and then remove.

Place chives, bean shoots and minced pork in large mixing bowl. Add soy sauce, salt and a tablespoon of cooking oil and mix thoroughly.

Egg Roll Wrappers - Chinese Pancakes

The batter for these egg roll wrappers is very similar to regular pancakes, except that it is a bit smoother and less lumpy. This recipe yields 6 or 7 egg roll wrappers.
Prep Time: 1 hour

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes


1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup water, or as needed
Vegetable oil, as needed

Stir the salt into the flour. Add the lightly beaten eggs.
Slowly add the water, stirring continously until you have a smooth, thin batter. If the batter is too dry, add 1 or 2 more tablespoons of water. Let the batter rest for 1 hour.
Heat a frying pan on medium low heat. Wipe a small amount of oil over the pan, removing any excess but making sure the pan is evenly covered.
Turn the heat down to low. Add 2 heaping tablespoons of batter into the middle of the pan. Immediately begin smoothing the batter out to form a circle approximately six inches in diameter. Use a spatula to remove the wrapper from the pan as soon as the bottom is cooked and the edges begin to curl slightly (less than one minute). Drain on paper towels. Continue with the rest of the batter, cleaning out the pan as needed.
Cool or refrigerate or freeze the egg roll wrappers until ready to use. Thaw before using.

To make the filling heat 2-3 tbsp oil in a wok, add ginger ,garlic and mushrooms, stir fry for 10-15 seconds.
Add leeks (if available) and stir fry for about 1 minute, then add carrots, cabbage and cook tossing the vegetables until they are crisp-tender.
