Instructions
Filling
  1. In a bowl, throw everything and mix until it all comes together. Taste and adjust salt,black pepper or lemon juice if needed.
  2. Keep it aside.
Cashew-Cilantro Sauce
  1. In a blender, throw in all the ingredients and blend on high until smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness or tang according to preference.
Assemble
  1. Lay one egg roll wrapper on a flat surface. Put filling in the center and fold by sealing the edges using a flour and water mix. You can use egg in place of it for sealing as well. I ran out of eggs and remembered the old fashioned way I had seen my mom do for sealing samosas or empanadas . So in a bowl, add flour and water and mix. You will have a sticky paste like thing.
  2. Get all the others ready in similar way.
  3. Heat up oil in a deep pot . Once hot, add 2-3 at a time and and fry until golden and crispy.
  4. Serve with sauce.
