Like turon, sumpia or fried lumpia is also a favorite Pinoy merienda. This is prepared in the same way as banana fritters except that in sumpia, we use different kinds of vegetable as filling.

  • 1 medium-sized onion, sliced crosswise
  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
  • 1/2 piece carrot, finely sliced
  • 50 gms shrimps cooked and peeled
  • 4 pcs baguio beans, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 kg mongo sprouts (toge)
  • lumpia wrappers
  • flour dissolved in water
  • 2 cups cooking oil
  • fish sauce for seasoning
  • platter
  • sifter
  • tongs
  • wooden spoon or ladle
  • frying pan
  • stove

  1. Heat a little amount of cooking oil in frying pan and saute garlic and onions until cooked.
  2. Add carrots, baguio beans and mongo sprouts to the sauteed garlic and onions.
  3. Mix sauteed ingredients for 5 minutes or until they are cooked. Then add shrimps.
  4. Reduce the heat; remove sauteed ingredients from the pan. Transfer cooked ingredients in a platter. This will serve as the filling for the sumpia or fried lumpia.
  5. Using a wooden spoon, get one scoop of the sauteed filling and put this on a piece of lumpia wrapper.
  6. Fold one end of the lumpia wrapper over the filling, then fold the other end over the other in order to cover the filling very well. Roll wrapper. Do this carefully so as not to spill any of the filling.
  7. Apply a little amount of dissolved flour on both ends of the wrapper in order to seal them.
  8. Wrap the rest of the ingredients in the same manner and prepare them for frying.
  9. Deep-fry he wrapped sumpia ingredients in two cups of hot cooking oil.
  10. Turn the pieces of sumpia every now and then so that both sides will be cooked evenly. Fry for 3 minutes.
  11. Remove sumpia from frying pan once the wrapper has turned light brown. This will indicate if the sumpia is already cooked.
  12. Place fried sumpia on a strainer to drain excess oil.
  13. Serve hot. A sauce or vinegar dip can accompany servings.
  14. This recipe is good for 15-20 pieces of sumpia or fried lumpia with shrimp and vegetable filling.
