Lumpia Shanghai | Halal Filipino Food

A recipe I know all Filipinos are proud of! Lumpia (shanghai type) is a type of egg roll, except it's mainly filled with meat. You could use chicken or beef or both! It's a yummy recipe and great to serve as finger food. VERY EASY!

Lumpia Shanghai Recipe


  • 500g minced chicken 
  • 1 green chilli chopped
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 small size onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small size carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder, or as needed
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp frozen coriander leaves, chopped
  • 15-20 spring rolls/lumpia wrappers
  • 1 beaten egg for sealing
  • oil for frying

  • In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the spring rolls wrappers, beaten egg and oil.
  • Mix well until combined thoroughly.
  • Separate wrappers into individual sheets. On a flat working surface, lay the wrapper like a diamond.
  • Spoon about 2 tablespoons of meat mixture on the middle of the wrapper.
  • Fold the bottom pointed end of wrapper over filling. Fold side ends of the sheet inward and roll tightly into a log about 3/4-inch thick and 5-inch length. 
  • Wet the pointed edge of the wrapper with a dab of beaten egg to completely seal. Repeat with the remaining mixture.(for proper way, see video). 
  • Heat the cooking oil in a deep fryer. Deep fry the lumpia for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove from the deep fryer and let the excess oil drip.
  • Transfer to a serving plate. Serve with sweet and sour sauce .
  • Share and Enjoy!
