What is Lumpia or Lumpiang Shanghai?
Lumpiang Shanghai is a Filipino egg roll. This is a popular finger food here in the Philippines. In essence, it is a meat and vegetable rolled in a lumpia wrapper. Since this is also one of our family favorites, I am sharing my recipe with you.
This is actually very simple to make. The best thing with Lumpia is that you can make as many as you want, put it in a fridge, cook some for a meal and save the rest for later. Also, my kid loves this for a snack or for lunch at school. It takes about just 5 minutes to prepare and another 15 minutes to roll depending on how many you are making. Frying time is 3 minutes so if you are looking for a quick and easy-to-prepare meal, consider making this. This is also best paired with a mix of Mayonnaise and Ketchup as a dip.
To start, here are the ingredients first. This makes about 40pcs of lumpia.
500 grams ground pork
1 medium-sized carrot, shredded
1 medium sized onion chopped
1/2 of 165g Eden Cheese, cubed
1 pack of lumpia wrapper
white powdered pepper
- Mix egg, ground pork, Eden Cheese, onion and carrots in a bowl. Add pepper and salt to taste.
- After mixing, you can now start making your rolls.
- Heat the oil over low heat. This is because we want to make sure the pork will be perfectly cooked.
- Take out the rolls once the wrapper turns golden brown.
