How to Make Mama Celina Famous Eggroll/Lumpia
- In a large bowl, mix all 8 ingredients thoroughly, It can be messy, I wear non latex gloves to protect my hands,
Set aside or put it back in the Fridge while preparing the wrappers,
- For the wrappers: separate the wrappers gently and carefully, cover with damp kitchen or paper towels to keep it from drying fast,
- in a small bowl beat 1 egg for sealing.
On flat surface, lay wrapper, scoop 1 teaspoon of meat mixture spread length wise like a mini log, (the smaller amout of filling the crunchier)
Pull the bottom edge of the wrapper over the filling, and gently tighten the wrapper around the filling. Fold the right and left edges over so that they touch in the middle and the wrapper, Roll the entire lumpia over so that there is about a 1-inch seam exposed, then brush and seal with egg.
repeat the same procedure, you can make depends on the quantity of the wrappers,
for storing and freezing:
I usually make a bunch and freeze them,
I store it in Freezer Bags, I secure the layers with wax paper to protect them from sticking together,
Takes longer to make but it's all worth it..
Enjoy your crunchy scrumptious delicious Egg rolls,
