Cheesecake Factory Avocado Egg Rolls Copycat Recipe Tips:
- First, make sure you choose ripe avocados. However, not too mushy or that already start to have black spots on the inside when you cut them.
- To ripen a hard avocado, store it in a brown paper bag.
- Also, when you dice the avocados, don’t mash them, you don’t want to end up with guacamole.
- Roll the Avocado Egg Rolls tightly, and don’t overfill them with the avocado-tomato mixture.
- Use unsalted cashews, for this recipe I like using raw cashews.
- In addition, when frying the rolls, it’s best to use vegetable or canola oil. Because, if using olive oil, will result in darker rolls. You need a high score of oil for frying.
- Fry the rolls just until they start to get golden brown. The ingredients inside don’t need to be fully cooked, so you are looking to only add the crunchy shell.
- You can serve the rolls with any sauce that you like, or you can make the copycat sauce listed in the recipe.
How to slice or dice an avocado?
- First, cut the avocado in half.
- Then, remove the pit – to do that, aim your knife at the pit and whack into it, twist the knife to pull out the pit.
- Next, use your knife’s tip to score avocado flesh, making squares, then scoop it out with a spoon.
- If you are looking to slice the avocado, use a spoon to loosen skin all the way around, and scoop out the flesh whole. Place flat side down on cutting board and slice using the tip of your knife.
Stove deep-frying tips:
If you do not own a deep fryer, hello, here I am, I don’t have one. Here are some tips for you, that will guide you how to safely deep fry the avocado rolls on the stove, using a deep pot or pan:
- First, choose an appropriate frying oil, these are great: peanut oil, vegetable oil or sunflower oil.
- Add the oil to a deep pot, fill it no more than half full, to avoid spillovers. Also, use enough oil so that you can submerge a small batch of egg rolls completely.
- Next, preheat the oil to the cooking temperature of 190 °C / 375 °F or 225 °C / 440 °F. Use a frying or candy thermometer to measure the oil temperature.
- Make sure the food you are adding to the pot is dry. If needed, use paper towels to remove external moisture. In addition, the presence of external moisture on foods can cause oil to splatter violently.
- Don’t get too close to the oil and use long tongs, a slotted deep-fry spoon, or a frying basket to add or remove foods gently from the pot.
- In case of pot catching fire, NO NOT USE: water, flour, or sugar to put out the grease fire, do not try to carry a flaming pot outdoors. To suffocate the fire, USE: baking soda, a damp towel, or a fire extinguisher specifically designed for grease fires.
- Once you add the rolls to the hot oil, just 1 minute may be enough. Since we are not looking to cook the interior of the food further. Also, keep in mind, smaller pieces of food will cook faster and more evenly than larger pieces.
- Drain the cooked food on paper towels.
