Lumpia shanghai

Lumpia Shanghai (spring rolls)

A Filipino dish influenced by Chinese. Lumpia is a very common finger food dish for parties as it can be easily prepared ahead of time.

Ingredients:

1 pack spring roll pastry (lumpia wrapper)
½ kilo Minced chicken
1 cup Cabbage (finely shredded)
2 onions (finely chopped)
2 carrots (grated)
1 large bell pepper (finely chopped)
1 eggwhite
½ cup bread crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste

Procedure:

Mix all ingredients vigorously in a large mixing bowl. Separate individually the wrappers and cover with clean kitchen towel (They easily get dry and hard making it quite difficult to seal). Keep the wrappers covered with clean cloth when not used yet. Place 1 teaspoon of the mixture in 1 wrapper and roll up until the meat is covered, fold the sides in making it tight and roll up again. Wet the edges with water to seal.
