Spring roll or Indonesian called it with “Lumpia”, are a large variety of filled, rolled appetizers. The name is a literal translation of the Chinese chūn juǎn (春卷) found widely in Asian and Southeast Asian cuisine. The kind of wrapper, fillings, and cooking technique used, as well as the name, vary considerably within this large area.
I do love spring roll. My mother usually make this for me and my family when Ramadhan (fasting month) come or make it only for snack in our daily. Although fried spring roll is more crunchy than this one, but in my personal taste I like the one that is not fried better than the fried one. I love the authentic taste of the original flavor of spring roll wrapper.
This recipe is adapted from Resep Keluarga Nugraha which I changed the filling. In original recipe used chicken meat, shrimp, and bamboo shoot. Just because my husband is a vegetarian, so I only use bamboo shoot, sprout, and carrot for the filling. I didn’t make the dipping sauce as the recipe written. I only serve this with simple chilli sauce, bird’s eye chilli pepper, and spring onion.
