  • 1 1/2 lbs ground pork
  • 1 whole egg
  • 4 cloves of garlic finely minced
  • 1/2 cup onions finely minced
  • 1/2 cup carrots finely minced
  • 1/2 cup shrimp finely minced
  • 1/2 cup Chinese celery (flat leaf parsley) finely chopped
  • soy sauce
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • spring roll wrappers
  • oil for frying

Step 1

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl except for the wrappers. Season with a little bit of salt and pepper and mix well. You can do a sampling at this point by taking a bit of the mixture and forming it into a small patty and frying it in oil. Just to test if it needs adjustment in seasoning.


Step 2

Lay your wrapper in a plate. Take about a tablespoon of the filling and lay on top near the bottom end of the wrapper. Form into a log shape as big as your finger.


Step 3

Fold the bottom end over slightly tugging your filling down so it would be wrapped tightly.


Step 4

Fold the sides toward the middle.


Step 5

Start rolling up. Brush the top end of your wrapper with a little bit of water to seal the lumpia.


Step 6

All wrapped up.


Step 7

Heat oil in a pan and deep fry your lumpia for about 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown.


Step 8

Pull out and let excess oil drip over a strainer or paper towel. Serve the Lumpiang Shanghai - Filipino Spring Rolls with your favorite sweet and sour sauce or ketchup.

It looks like you used another powdery ingredient, maybe cornstarch?  But I don’t see that listed.

What is this white powder on top of the mixture? Why is it not on the list of ingredients? Is it cornstarch? Thank You.
