Egg Rolls with Asian Chives


4 free range eggs

100g Asian chives (chopped)

1 tsp Chinese cooking wine

1 tsp fish sauce

2 tsp corn starch mixed with 2 tsp water

1 tbsp cooking oil

Preparation Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, add in eggs, Chinese cooking wine, fish sauce, corn starch solution and beat thoroughly.
  2. Add the chopped Asian chives and mix evenly.
  3. Heat a tamagoyaki pan on low heat and lightly coat with cooking oil using a silicone brush.
  4. Drop in a bit of the egg mixture and make sure it sizzles. Ladle the egg mixture into the pan and quickly distribute it. When the egg surface almost dry, roll the egg sheet backwards. Push the egg roll toward the front of the pan and then re-coat the pan with the cooking oil. Make sure the pan is still hot and ladle the egg mixture into it, distributing the egg again. Lift the egg roll and make sure to spread the egg mixture underneath it. When the egg almost firms up, roll it backwards again, adding another layer to the egg rolls. Push the roll to the front and coat the pan with the cooking oil again. Repeat the process for 4 times in total. If the egg sheet puffs up, poke it with the chopstick to remove the air, flattening the surface. Finally, gently press the egg rolls against the edge of the pan, adjusting the shape.
  5. Transfer the egg rolls onto a cutting board and leave to cool completely.
  6. Cut the egg rolls into 8 equal pieces. Arrange the egg rolls onto a serving platter. Serve as a side dish.
