  1. I tried this recipe and it was a hit! I just made some alteration,I mixed my own flour (gluten free)since my Boss is in a gluten free diet.I tried to make a gluten free crepes,and it failed but the recipe for the lumpia wrapper,its perfect for making crepes! Now I keep using it for a crepes,and they like it so much!Thank you Panlasang Pinoy!

  2. hi! thanks for the lumpiang sariwa recipe, it is indeed highly recommended for holy week. however, when i was viewing your video, i noticed you used pork…. which we are supposedly abstaining from during this lenten season. i am wondering though if we can replace meat with ubod, just like what bujoy mentioned in the earlier thread. otherwise, what could be the next best alternative to meat? as always, thank you for relentlessly sharing with us your pinoy recipes. you are truly heaven sent for us mothers :)

  3. hi there..lumpiang sariwa is one of my favorite and then when i found out about your website i tried to cook it all by husband, daughter and even my cousin who cooks very well loves it..i also gave my neighbor to judge the taste..though it was a one time only but it was a hit for everyone..they love it..thanks so much

  8. Thank you very much, Vanjo. I tried this recipe with some substitutes to the ingredients which are not found here. My guests (my friend and her family and my mother-in-law) said it was delicious. My friend even asked for the recipe. Of course, my husband immediately became the number fan.

    Here their staple food is bread so I try as much as possible to introduce Filipino foods. Your website is a valuable source of Filipino recipes. I am glad the hubby is not a fuzzy eater so he is my ‘tester’ before I serve them to my German guests.

    Addendum: I thought you were a chef until I read your personal info and was inspired by your passion in cooking and dedication in promoting Filipino food. Kudos, Vanjo and more delcious recipes to come.

  12. Hi Vanjo,

Thanks again and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  14. Kuya, Do you have a recipe for Puto Binan? I’ve been looking for the recipe for the longest time, please help. Thank You and more power.

  15. Just recently i joined your website…I like all your recipes as they are simple yet truthful and free!! I introduced your site to my daughter, who now resides in USA…tho she is not an expert in cooking but she just follow the instructions…now she is enjoying cooking and searching for more recipes in your site till midnight. She is so excited to learn more as her husband and daughter appreciate her cooking Panlasangpinoy way. Thank you!

  16. hiyah! i’m from WA. I found lots of cornstarch in asian stores. there are lots of asian stores all over WA. i hope u can find a good one wherever u are.
    for the singkamas, u may try a not so ripe pear. it taste the same- crunchy, slightly sweet, and juicy. there are singkamas in asian stores too, though rarely.
    for the tofu, i don’t think there are any substitute for it. sorry… u may use really fresh, good quality tofu so that the taste is mild and unoffensive for those sensitive tastes. and then don’t tell ur husband about it! hehehe

  17. na i substitute ko po ung flour sa cornstarch at nag work naman…try nyo lang din po….

  18. this is such a delicious recipe..i and my husband liked it. i love this kind of wrapper, although it was kinda soft so the tendency when you roll it, the wrapper tears apart. is there any suggestion so i can improve the wrapper.Thanks again.

  19. Good for how many people po ba ang mga measurement nyo? It will be good kung may note kung para ilan since some of us have big families. :) thanks and more power.x

  20. hinahanap ko po sa video nyo ung peanuts d po kse na add sa sa filling ng lumpia..iinitin pa po ba ung peanuts sa pan before i crushed?

  21. hi, im a mother of five and nowadays life is getting tougher esp. financially so im into making snack foods for my kids (they eat a lot) and for college students in the school where i am teaching. I am looking for recipes to add to my existing list( para di magsawa ang mga students dahil my variety) when i saw panlasang pinoy and i find it so useful. thank you very much for unselfishly sharing your recipes with us.

  22. more power and looking forward for more helpful and practical recipes…God bless you all abundantly!!!

  23. thank you for this wonderful recipe…u are a big help….my host Norwegian family here in Oslo loved it….God bless!

  24. Hi. really want 2 try dis but im a muslim, cant use pork or pork cube. can i use chicken or beef instead? will d taste be different? thanx n God Bless U……..

  25. You could switch to regular flour (arina) instead of cornstarch. Flour would just make the sauce look cloudy instead of clear brownish color. You don’t have to add singkamas and tofu, you can just stick with green beans, carrots, sweet potato, cabbage if you wish. If you guys like bean sprouts you could add that to your list of main vegetables. Omitting singkamas and tofu will not change the taste that much because they are just extenders (pampadami). Yes, you could mash garlic if you wish. I hope this will help. Good Luck!

  26. I think I finally found the best fresh lumpia here in your website. Thanks to you!!!

  27. I tried this recipe and my husband, mother-in-law and sister-in-law love it!! Thanks for sharing your recipes!!! Do you have recipe on how to make puto cake?

I still have to try the recipes, I’ve browsed the sweets side so far (the vanilla cake is on top of the list), they all make me wish the bakeries are open at this time of night. I’ll let you know how the recipes turn out in my kitchen. Check out my blog at Hope to see you there. Cheers!

  29. Thanks for the recipe.. followed it and it’s exactly what I wanted :) my colleagues/friends love it!

  30. After you make the wrappers, can I pile them up, one on top of the other, just like the store-bought wrappers? Should I cool them first before piling up? And then, can they be frozen? Thanks.

    1. I’ll answer my own question ;D, I tried it and the answer is YES. And the recipe is great.. THANKS!!!!
