Serves 10

1/4 cup ground pork
1/4 cup violet onions
1/4 cup carrots, chopped
1/4 cup spring onions, chopped

1/4 cup peeled and coarsely chopped shrimps
1 egg
1 tbsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. rock salt
1 tsp. pepper to taste

20 pieces lumpia wrapper


1. Spread 2 tbsps. filling on upper edge of lumpia. Roll the lumpia wrapper halfway as tightly as you can (leave sides open). Brush or use hands to spread 2 egg whites on bottom half of lumpia. Roll well, deep-fry, drain, then cut diagonally into pieces.


1/2 cup catsup
5 tbsps. plus 1 tsp. sugar
3/4 cup vinegar
2 cups water
2 tbsps. cassava starch
2 tbsps. minced white onion
1 tsp. sesame oil


1) Get 20 pieces lumpia wrapper.

2) Mix and put a little filling in the wrapper.

3) Form into a triangle, seal edges with 1 tsp. AA cassava starch mixed with 1/2 cup water.

4) For the sauce, mix all ingredients in a saucepan until boiling.
