This is as close to the original as I can imagine. A few tweaks: tamarind paste is a lot easier to find. I used sprigs of saffron rather than powder. Obviously, you need more than one avocado, I use 6. The honey is what makes it thicker than CF's but I like it. I also don't warm in in the microwave. All the dry ingredients (esp the cashews) go in a food processor. Finally, I tried oriental egg roll wrappers (TYJ) which cook quicker and are crispier and only need water to "glue it" rather than egg. DELICIOUS

Wow, this was quite different from anything I've made. I really liked them and the sauce was great. I had won ton rolls so used them instead of eggrolls. I had little bites! I really enjoyed the flavor. There is no Cheesecake Factory in this part of N.C., but if I ever find one I will definetaly try the Avocado Eggrolls! Thanks for a delicious recipe.

So happy that I found and made this recipe! I was looking for a creative vegetarian recipe and this was excellent! I did not have tamarind pulp and I used saffron strings, otherwise, I prepared according to the recipe. I only used one avocado and I did fill 5 egg roll wrappers. This is absolutely deliciously! The sauce is exceptional, and although I thought the garlic might've been too strong, my guests assured me it was not! I did have some sauce left over and that stuff is seriously addicting. I ate it on anything I could find until it was gone! YUM! I can't wait to make it again and again!

These were great, you need to fry them and do not sub out the saffron or tamarind. I found the tamarind and an Indian cuisine store! They were delicious but, this will not serve 2-4 with only three wrappers. We made a dozen for 3 of us and it was a delicious light meal!

Great recipe! I made this recipe for a party and made like 40 of them for the first time ever, spent about the whole afternoon but they came out great! The recipe is well referenced. The rolls were a bit bland without the salt, but the dipping sauce makes it a delicious combo. If you get the eggroll wraps, I recommend baking them because fried ones were just a bit too oily for me, but the baked one tasted just as good. Worth the work everyone, you should try it! If you're making it for a party, I recommend only doubling the recipe or just having maybe 1 pack of eggrolls (about 20) and halving them because I made too much for a ~10 person party. For those of you unable to find tamarind sauce or saffron, go to the local Indian grocery store (e.g. Cash N' Carry) and you can find it there.

These came out just as I remember....super yummy. I did use 2 avocados and skipped the safran. P.S. Avocados are actually really good for you and considered a "healthy fat" aka monounsaturated that reduces bad cholesterol, good source of protein/potassium/Vita K & B plus fiber! And, I baked mine instead of frying and came out just as good.

I have eaten at the Cheesecake factory many times solely to have the tamarind sauce for their avocado egg rolls. In my opinion, this tastes NOTHING like the recipe and I followed it to the T. I wasted a lot of money on ingredients not to mention my time.

I would say this is the closest thing to the Cheesecake Factory Avocado egg roll out there. The only thing I would suggest is modifying the amount of dipping sauce since you end up with a lot left over. But on the other hand, that is just motivation to make more egg rolls.

I have never tried these at the cheesecake factory so I have no idea how they compare. I thought these were good, but not great. My husband and I both thought they seemed like they were missing something. However, the sauce is AMAZING I almost didn't make it and I would have been missing out for sure!!

Delicious! Tasted just like the restaurant. Wish I would have remembered that they serve it with those fried rice noodles on top! I had a hard time finding the tamarind pulp and saffron. Finally ended up at a huge Asian market and had success. The tamarind pulp is in a bag in the freezer section. And we paid $10 for 1.2 grams of saffron. I would say it is equal to 4 "pinches". Pretty pricy. I have enough to make the sauce 3 more times though! I used 6 avocados, and I ended up with 8 eggrolls. I might have filled them more, but they seemed the right size. I was expecting a lot more eggrolls though, since the recipe calls for 1 avocado and it makes 3 eggrolls.
