I found this on They were offerring an assortment of Asian recipes for Chanukkah, and this dessert influenced by Filipino cuisine piqued my interest. This recipe makes 16 lumpia.

SUPER EASY!!!! I definitely recommend a metal strainer and slowly lowering the lumpia into the oil, mostly to make sure it fries's itself shut. I made them with apple bananas... So good!
