How to store egg rolls properly?

Allow the cooked egg rolls to cool completely before storing them. This step prevents condensation and helps retain their crispy texture.

If you plan to serve the egg rolls within a day or two, you can store them in the refrigerator. Place the cooled egg rolls in an airtight container or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap. This prevents them from drying out and helps maintain their flavor.
