Lumpiang Togue

Fried Egg Roll with Mungbean Sprouts, Carrots, Green Onion

Lumpiang Togue is one of the popular fried vegetable eggroll favorites, with the mungbean sprout filling as the main vegetable ingredient.

They are a common afternoon snack, usually peddled and comes with a side of spicy vinegar dipping sauce.

Carrots, green onion and fried tofu are stir-fried with the mungbean, then cooled and wrapped in spring roll wrappers and deep fried until crispy.

Have you had a vegetable eggroll that you need to spoon the vinegar dip instead of dipping it in because the veggie fillings tend to end up in the dip?

That is why I put a binder in my Lumpia, even though it's not a traditional practice.

After draining all the liquid sauce from the stir-fried veggies, I add one egg and a couple teaspoons flour before I roll them.

This prevents the veggies from scattering all over the place.

BENG'S TIPS

  • You can skip the egg and flour binder suggestion in this recipe. It doesn't really add to the taste, it's just a neat and convenient way of eating the eggroll.

  • I use a paste of 1 tablespoon flour with 2 tablespoons water to seal the lumpiang togue wrapper so they don't unravel during frying.

  • To re-heat a fried lumpia, pop it in a pre-heated 450 °F oven (or even a toaster oven) for 10 - 15 minutes or until the wrapper is crispy.
