BATTER FOR CHICKEN BALLS

1 egg
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
Beat egg and stir in milk. Add sifted dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Dip chicken in batter. Fry in fat heated to 365 degrees. Cook pieces 13 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

EGG ROLLS
1 lb ground pork
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water
2 cups shredded cabbage
2 ounces shredded carrots
8 (7 inch square) egg roll wrappers

Season pork with ginger and garlic powder and mix thoroughly. Heat mixture in a medium skillet, stirring, until pork is cooked through and no longer pink. Set aside.
heat oil to about 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) While oil is heating, combine flour and water in a bowl until they form a paste. In a separate bowl combine the cabbage, carrots and reserved pork mixture. Mix all together.
Lay out one egg roll skin with a corner pointed toward you. Place about a 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the cabbage, carrot and pork mixture on egg roll paper and fold corner up over the mixture. Fold left and right corners toward the center and continue to roll. Brush a bit of the flour paste on the final corner to help seal the egg roll.
Place egg rolls into heated oil and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels or rack.

Rice
