Super delicious, the filling itself can be an excellent salad that is full of flavor, especially after marinated for a few hours; added the filling into egg roll wraps, after lightly frying all sides, the egg rolls turned out golden, crispy outside and tons of flavour inside. You can feel free to add some bean sprouts or water chess nuts into the filling to give extra crunchiness.
