Egg Rolls vs. Spring Rolls
An egg roll is a deep-fried roll with a thick and crispy wrapper. Spring rolls, on the other hand, have a thinner flour wrapper. Egg rolls are always deeply fried, but spring rolls can be baked or deep-fried. This is why egg rolls have a crispy, bubbly wrapper while spring rolls are relatively smooth. Egg rolls and spring rolls are both deep-fried rolls that are considered a part of Chinese-American cuisine.
How to Dice an Avocado
Avocados are super easy to dice. First, you should halve the avocado and then remove the pit. Then, cut the avocados into squares and scoop them out with a spoon. The avocado filling is best diced since it will keep its shape in the egg roll. It will also taste better in cubes than if you were to mash the avocado.
How to Ripen An Avocado
If your avocados are not yet ripe, you can make the process go faster by placing them in a paper bag. This causes the ethylene gas to build up. Ethylene is a plant hormone that causes the ripening process. You can also place a ripe banana in the closed brown paper bag since ripe bananas produce lots of ethylene. You will know the avocado is ripe and ready to be eaten if it is slightly soft but still not mushy.
How to Keep Fresh Avocados From Going Brown
Avocados tend to go brown shortly after being cut. This is because the enzyme in the avocados reacts with the oxygen in the air and turns the avocado brown. After you dice your avocado and make the filling, you can keep your avocado from turning brown by wrapping them in plastic wrap. You could also lightly brush some lemon juice across the avocado. The acidity of the lemon juice lowers the pH of the avocado and prevents browning.
Tips For The Crispiest Avocado Egg Rolls
- Make sure your avocado is ripe but not too ripe. It should be firm but not too hard.
- Use vegetable oil or a different type of neutral oil. This will prevent the avocado egg rolls from tasting like olive oil. A neutral oil such as vegetable or canola oil also has a high smoking point, making it suitable for frying.
