Fried Lumpia

Lumpia anyone? Aside from pancit and bbq on a stick, lumpia is hubby's ultimate Filipino fave dish. He's been begging me to make lumpia for several times, but I keep resisting because it takes too much of work....whoaa....lazy wife....lol!
To satisfy hubby's craving, I made him his favorite Filipino dish the other day. He was delighted when he found out that we are having lumpia for dinner.
I used sweet and sour mix for dipping sauce!

According to Wikipedia, Lumpia are pastries of Chinese origin similar to spring rolls popular in Indonesia and the Philippines. The term lumpia derives from lunpia in the Hokkien language. The recipe, both fried and fresh versions, was brought by the Chinese immigrants from the Fujian province of China to Southeast Asia and became popular where they settled in Indonesia and the Philippines. In the Netherlands and Flanders, it is spelled loempia which is the old Indonesian spelling for lumpia and has also become the generic name for "spring roll" in Dutch. A variant is the Vietnamese lumpia, wrapped in a thinner piece of pastry, in a size close to a spring roll though the wrapping closes the ends off completely, which is typical for lumpia.

Siguro naman lumpiang shanghai ito no? Maliit kasi kaya hindi naman siguro lumpiang togue, lol. Matrabaho nga yung paggawa nang lumpia, mabusisi, lol. Pareho tayong kinatatamaran ang paggawa niyan. Ako nilalagyan ko pa nang tinadtad na hipon at longganisang macau yung ground pork and vegetables para mas malasa ang lumpia, tapos nilalagyan ko rin nang grated cheese at milk powder. Ang arte ano? Thanks for your yummy post. Matagal tagal na din akong hindi nakatitikim nang lumpia. God bless you all always.
