It was twice already that I made lumpia here in the Netherlands. My very Dutch husband comes to like some of my Asian cooking, including lumpia. Lumpia is easy to prepare, easy to cook. I also found out that the Turkish store nearby is selling lumpia wrapper for only €2.75.

|my lumpia: consists of carrots, coriander, onion, paprika, and egg yolk.|
500 grams ground meat (I like ground beef)
Lumpia wrapper (the entire package has 40-50 pcs)
250 grams shredded carrots
250 grams shredded coriander
1 pc paprika, also shredded
1 pc medium size onion
1 egg (keep the egg wash separately to seal the wrapper)
For seasoning, you can use lumpia ready mix
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, including the egg yolk and the lumpia ready mix. Mix well.
Spread the lumpia wrapper on a flat, clean surface or in a big plate.
Spoon the lumpia mix to the wrapper and wrap the lumpia like you are wrapping a small gift. I suggest two tablespoons of lumpia mix for every wrapper. It is light, easy to fry, and bite-size.
Don' forget to use the egg wash to seal the lumpia wrapper.
Frying: if you have a French fries fryer, you can fry your lumpia there. You can also use even a pan as long as you dip fry the lumpia for a crunchy result.
Lumpia is good with sweet and sour sauce. I also like dipping it in vinegar with crushed garlic, or soy sauce with lemon. Enjoy!
