I made lumpia for hubby's family when we went to Illinois.
"Lumpia are pastries of the Philippines and Indonesia of Chinese origin and are similar to spring rolls. The recipe, both fried and fresh versions, was brought by the Chinese immigrants from the Fujian province of China to Southeast Asia and became popular where they settled in the Philippines and Indonesia. In the Netherlands, it is spelled "loempia" which is the old Indonesian spelling for lumpia and has also become the generic name for "spring roll" in Dutch."- wikipedia.org/wiki/Lumpia
