Korean Egg Roll [Gye Ran Mal E]

Egg roll [Gye Ran Mal E] is good side dish which is easy to be served with other dishes. It is full of protein and well known for picnic food as all children love it!

When I was young,we didn’t eat much egg. So this egg dish was kind of a special treat to me. My mum used to make an egg roll once every 2weeks. So on that day, I always ate one more bowl of rice so I could have more egg roll. =P

  1. OK, here’s my ever first Egg Roll!

    Very ugly and kinda failed while rolling up the egg. Hahaha!


    • That’s pretty good egg roll which is the first time :-)
      Yeah, rolling the egg mixture is quite hard to me as well. Next time, you might wanna roll with less egg mixture so you can roll it easier without tearing the eggroll.
      But you finally did good job :-D yay
      Looks really Yumm!

  2. I will be trying this one soon. I just have to get the ingredients at the store :)

    • If you don’t have some ingredients in this recipe, that’s ok. You can add any vegeatables you want.(even meat,ham or chicken!)
      Enjoy your egg roll ;-)

  8. Hi,Chloe..
    Nice sharing! my egg rolls quite thick and hard to roll but finally i make it. I added chopped onion and chili so it will taste like Malaysian food.. yummy~

    • Hi Za,
      Yay, you finally made it :)
      Egg roll with chopped onion and chili sounds good. Does Malaysian food use onion and chili a lot?
      Thank you for enjoying my recipe.

      • Welcome. my family love the egg rolls! I’ll try another recipe next time.
        Malaysian(Malay foods) usually put chopped onion and chili in fried eggs. We usually use small amount of onion, garlic and chili but it depend on the recipes.

  9. hi Chloe,

  10. When I was younger I lived in Germany and my mom and her friends had another friend, a Korean lady, who showed them how to make this appetizer dish that I loved. We called them Egg Rolls but they aren’t like the recipe you posted. They are more like Chinese Egg rolls. My mom never wrote down the recipe and now can’t remember it. All she knows is that it had: hamburg, cabbage, carrots and some other stuff mixed up and rolled up in some kind of wrapper and then fried. Do you happen to know what they are?
