I made lumpia!

Oh, I'm so excited to share this with you....I learned to make LUMPIA!!!

All the stuff mixed in...

You take a spring roll wrapper turn it so its shaped like a diamond (not a square).  Place a handful of filling onto it.  (Oh...and mix the above photo so its all mixed together)

Fold up the bottom edge so it covers the filling.

Roll about three times - tightly.  Fold the sides in.  Roll some more until you have a small spot at top and paste it shut with a little bit of egg.

Pile up all your yummy uncooked lumpia.  Prep oil on stove.

Once the oil is warmed place a few lumpia in the pan.  Wait until the bottom gets browned and then flip them.  When both sides are browned place on a plate that has a paper towel and allow lumpia to cool.  Once cool you can place on another plate and serve.  

You can also make your own sweet and sour sauce to go with these. I served with rice and mango. I had some very happy kids (this was lunch).  Special thanks to my friend T.K. for teaching me how to make lumpia!! I am so very blessed.

Oh...and you are probably thinking I want a recipe. goes (from memory):

25 Spring Roll Shells (sold frozen in a 25 pack at the Asian Store)
Mama Sita's Adobo Savory Sauce Mix (1/2 package)
chicken shredded (I used Kirkland's canned chicken)
matchstick carrots (however much you'd like)
frozen french cut green beans (again, however much you'd like)
minced garlic, minced ginger, soy sauce and any other seasonings you'd like to add.

Aside from that, you just need oil to fry it up in.


Ah, and lastly...I did take a photo of myself eating one and I look too silly to blog it.  Next time folks, next time.
