  4. Remove the blade from the food processor. Attached the shredding disc with the largest hole, shred carrot and water chestnut into the mixture. Remove the disc, use a spatula to give it a good mix. Set aside.
  1. Cut beancurd sheet into smaller pcs about 8” x 5” rectangle.
  2. Clean the sheets with a damp cloth to remove the excess salt.
  3. Scoop 3 tbsp of the filling and line on beancurd sheet, leaving a 1 inch space on both ends of the beancurd sheet. Apply egg wash, roll up and ensure all sides are sealed. #Tips: Do not wrap it too tightly as the meat may expand while cooking and the beancurb skin will tear apart.
