Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup cold ham (any kind), cubed
  • 3/4 cup cold mozzarella cubed
  • 1 finger chili finely sliced
  • 2 to 3 scallions finely sliced
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 8 to 12 spring roll wrappers (sizes vary)
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 cups cooking oil

Instructions

  • Place the mozzarella, ham, chili and scallions in a container. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss lightly a few times.
  • Place a tablespoonful or more of the filling on a spring roll wrapper and wrap using the beaten egg to seal the edges (see illustration on how to wrap spring rolls). Repeat until all the wrappers are filled and rolled, or until you run out of filling, whichever comes first.
  • Heat the cooking oil and fry the spring rolls in batches of four to five just until the wrappers turn golden. Each batch should take no more than two minutes to fry. There is nothing raw in the filling — you’re just frying to make the wrapper crisp and to melt the cheese.
  • Drain the spring rolls on paper towels.
  • Serve with garlic-herb mayo for dipping.

Notes

For the garlic-herb mayo dipping sauce:
2 tbsps. of mayonnaise
2 to 3 tbsps. of sour cream
1 cloves of garlic, grated
1/2 tsp. of chopped herbs (whatever your favorite is; may also be a combination of herbs)
