Cooking Tips

  • Make sure your vegetable lumpia is deep-fried and cooked on a medium heat if you want it to have a crispy exterior.
  • Do not try to fry your lumpia on a very high heat. If you cook it in a super high temperature, not only will it make your lumpia burnt, but it will also leave your lumpia fillings to be uncooked.
  • To seal the rolled lumpia filling, you can also dip your fingertips in a beaten egg. This will undoubtedly wrap all of the ingredients that needed wrapping.
  • For not vegetarians, if you want meat in your lumpia, you may add shrimp or ground meat to the ingredients.


  • 5 pieces of green chili pepper
  • 20 grams green onion
  • 1 minced onion
  • 1 potato
  • 1 medium-sized carrot
  • 95 grams of chayote
  • 2 eggs
  • lumpia wrapper
  • cooking oil


  1. Cut the onion into cubes and slice the 5 green chili peppers and green onion on a chopping board. To make the folding of the chayote, potato, and carrot in a lumpia wrapper somewhat easier, cut them into rectangular shapes.

  3. To wrap the filling neatly, choose a flat surface. Place 1 tablespoon of the filling in the center of a lumpia wrapper, 1 inch away from the bottom part of the wrapper. Fold the left and right corners of the lumpia wrapper and start rolling it up from the bottom to the top. With your fingertips dipped in water, seal the edge with it.

  4. Heat the pan and add just enough cooking oil to deep-fry the lumpia. To completely cook the fillings, use the medium heat option. When the lumpia has turned a golden-brown color, remove it from the pan and set it on a paper towel to drain the oil.
