Lumpia Shanghai Recipe

Crunchy Lumpia ShanghaiFor dipping Jufran Banana Sauce mixed with Sweet Chili Sauce
Ingredients:2 pck./30 pcs. Menlo lumpia wrapper
3 lbs. ground pork
1/2 cup raisins
1 small can water chestnut, drain and chopped
1 large potato, shredded
1 large carrot, shredded
3 pcs. celery stick, chopped
1 large onion, chopped fine
10 pcs. garlic cloves, chopped fine
3 pcs. eggs, beaten
2 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoon flour
salt and groundpepper to taste

How to prepare Lumpia fillings:Mix ground pork, water chestnut, carrots, potato, celery, raisins, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, eggs, flour and cornstarch on a deep bowl. Mix really well and chill for 30 minutes.

Scoop a spoon of the mixture on each lumpia wrapper, spread, roll and seal the ends with egg white and cut in half.

When frying heat the wok first before adding the cooking oil. Reduce heat to medium low to avoid the lumpia from burning. You don't want the wrapper cooked but not the filling inside.

I usually make a bunch of this and freeze the rest for next time.

If you are watching your calories and all you could substitute ground chicken or ground beef instead of ground pork.

it's so nice to see a "long" lumpia
most of the time here at home, before frying or we tend to cut it into bite size pieces to maximize the "tutong" part so that it will be very fried.

Daph, for sure your husband will like.

Jorp, that's how we make lumpia here unless your ingredients are moslty veggies then you have to seal all sides.

bakit pag niluto ang shanghai minsan may part na maitim ?

Ganyan talaga depende sa lakas nang apoy. Try next time once mainit na ang cooking oil reduce heat to medium low.

Hi Lory, here in California menlo is available at our asian grocery store like ranch 99. I see them eveey where. Pretty famous brand. If not you can use other brand too, try the filipino round wrapper they are good to use too in making lumpia.
