I am posting this recipe in answer to a request. I haven't made it, but am planning to do so sometime soon. The prep time includes making the wrappers. From Martin Yan.

  1. Wrappers: Mix eggs, water, cornstarch, flour, and salt together until smooth.

  3. Heat a nonstick 8-inch omelet pan.
  4. Over medium heat, brush pan with 1/4 teaspoon oil.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup batter into pan; move pan to let the batter flow over the entire surface.

  14. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in the same pan.
  15. Stir-fry the jicama and carrot for 1 minute.
  16. Add green onions; cook about 2 minutes more, so that the vegetables are still crisp but tender.

  18. Cool.
  19. Use half of a piece of lettuce for each lumpia.
