Lumpia Goreng Seafood Recipe (Fried Seafood Springroll)

Lumpia is a pastry that the Indonesian calls for spring roll. Lumpia’s term derives from lunpia in the Hokien dialect of Chinese. In Netherlands, it’s spelled as loempia which is the old Indonesian spelled for lumpia and also become the generic name for spring roll in Dutch. In the Phillipines, they also call lumpia as the Indonesian’s called and spelled.

This recipe is adapted from Tabloid Nova which I changed in seafood filling. The original recipe only used shrimp and squids. I also created my own dipping sauce for this lumpia.
