My LUMPIANG SHANGHAI (spring rolls)

Lumpia is a spring roll in the Philippines, Lumpiang Shanghai means spring rolls filled with ground or finely minced pork and served with sweet and sour sauce. For me it’s good with fried rice and chilli sauce. Also a great center-piece, mostly during parties or celebrations. My mother’s favorite!

This was kids lunch today prepared with Mama Sita’s Lumpiang Shanghai Mix and served with garlic fried rice, sliced tomatoes, cucumber and for dipping sauce vinegar with crushed garlic and sweet chilli sauce. You can add some powdered pepper too.

2.) Place 1 tbsp. of pork filling at the center of wrapper and roll. Brush the edges with a little beaten egg to seal completely. Repeat until all wrappers are filled.

3.) Heat wok or skillet. Pour in vegetable oil, when the oil start to smoke, carefully lower the lumpia one by one. Do not overcrowd cook only 5 to 6 pieces at a time. Roll them in oil to brown evenly.

4.) Remove once they turn golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sweet and sour sauce or chilli sauce.


Start with the most important rule. Have everything ready before you start making the spring rolls. Separate the wrappers, have a pastry brush within reach and a clean plate on which to place the prepared spring rolls.
