Preparation

  1. Combine all the Lumpiang Togue ingredient together except for the wrapper.
  2. Heat up a wok filled with oil for deep frying.
  3. Take one piece of lumpia wrapper and lay it with one edge pointing to your direction.
  4. Place three tablespoons of the vegetable mix in the bottom part of the wrapper near the edge.
  5. Now start rolling and when it reaches third of the way fold the left and right edges to keep the contents from going outside the sides.
  6. Dampen the top edge of the wrapper to seal the roll.
  7. Deep fry immediately. Do not set them aside as the liquid content might make the wrapper soggy.
  8. Now continue with the remaining ingredients.
  9. Once cooked, remove the rolls from the oil then place on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  10. Mix all the vinegar dip ingredients together.
  11. Serve the rolls hot together with the vinegar dip.
