  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 small carrot minced
  • 1 medium sweet onion yellow, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 piece egg
  • 20 to 25 pieces medium lumpia wrapper
  • 1 ½ cups cooking oil


  • Combine ground pork, salt, pepper, garlic powder, minced onion, cracked egg, and minced carrot in a bowl. Mix well using your hands. Make sure to wash before doing this step, or wear gloves that are latex free and BPA free.
  • Lay a piece of lumpia wrapper flat on a plate. Adjust the orientation of the wrapper by rotating the plate so that one side points upward while the rest of the sides are pointing down, left, and right -- just like a diamond. Scoop 1 ½ to 2 tablespoons of meat mixture and place it at one the left side of the wrapper. Shape the meat unto a cylinder. Fold the pointed side of the wrapper towards the pork mixture and then roll inwards by 1 to 2 inches. Fold the top and bottom ends inwardand then continue to roll the wrapper until the mixture is completely wrapped. Seal by rubbing water using your fingers on the right end of the wrapper and press it gently against the rolled lumpia. Perform this step with the remaining ingredients.
  • Heat the oil in a small pot.
  • Deep fry the lumpia in batches of 4 to 6 pieces in medium heat for 10 minutes or until the wrapper turns light to golden brown.
  • Remove the fried lumpia from the pot. Let the oil drip.
  • Serve with banana ketchup or sweet and sour sauce.
  • Share and enjoy!
