A simple Korean-style egg roll, 계란말이, is an easy side dish for any day in Korea. We eat this every now and then because it’s quick, beautiful, and delicious and calls for only a few ingredients. You know I make recipes simple!
Also if you don’t have a rectangular pan but you still want to make egg rolls in good shape, this recipe is perfect for you.
Here goes the ingredients. You will need eggs, milk, carrot, onion, green part of spring onion, salt, and pepper.
Think about taste, color and texture if you want to use different vegetables. Personally I also love chopped mushrooms and grated cheese in egg rolls.
It’s like extending carpet to roll up. And a non-stick pan will make things much easier for this recipe. A frying pan which is smaller than 10 inches is recommended.
It’s quick and easy. Everyone can make it, and everyone likes it. It’s beautiful. Bon appetit!.
Egg Rolls Recipe
For 2 people
Difficulty: Easy to intermediate
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 tablespoon carrot, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon green part of spring onion, finely chopped
- Salt and freshly ground pepper for seasoning
1. First, crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and add in milk and salt. Whisk until combined. Then pass through a fine sieve to remove chalaza. Liquid without lumps is helpful in making egg roll successfully.
2. Add in carrot, onion, spring onion, and pepper and stir until combined.
3. Lightly grease a frying pan with vegetable oil. It’s a small egg roll. And heat the frying pan. Then pour in 1/2 egg mixture and over low heat cook it over until half done. Roll the omelet half way from the right to the middle. And move the egg roll to the right edge of the pan. If there is not enough oil, lightly grease the pan each time you roll up. And add in ¼ egg mixture to cover the left half of the pan. And cook until half done. And roll again half way up from the right to the left and move the egg roll to the right side of the pan. And add in the remaining egg mixture and cook until half done. And finally roll all the way up.*
3. Transfer to a cutting board. When an egg roll is hot, it’s easily broken, so let cool before cutting. Slice into bite-size pieces. And serve.
A right-handed person would start folding from the right. But for the left-handed folding from the left would be more convenient.
