What more do you need to add to an already delicious lumpiang shanghai recipe?
It has pork, shrimp, celery, and carrots, and even singkamas to ensure that every bite is a delicious and crunchy one. You can even add cabbage, togue, or even potatoes if you're feeling creative in the kitchen.
Just to help, here are tips you may need to make sure your lumpia recipe is perfectly cooked:
When frying, make sure the oil is of the right temperature so the filling is well-cooked and the wrapper is golden brown. Don't have a thermometer? Not a problem! You can test the heat of your oil with a wooden spoon. Bubbles should form around the stick of the spoon to indicate that the oil is ready for frying. Remember to serve your lumpiang Shanghai dish with a side of sweet and sour sauce.
