Lumpia is a traditional Filipino appetizer, not unlike eggrolls. Recipe from Chef Andy Pforzheimer:

For the Filling:

Saute garlic in oil until light brown. Add chicken and onion. Season with fish sauce. Remove from pan. Repeat the process with the shrimp, but stir-frying quickly and remove from pan immediately. Return the chicken-onion mixture to the pan, add in sequences, green bean, garbanzos, carrot, rutabagas, yam, cabbage, bean curd. Add a little stock and allow to simmer until the desired tenderness. Season with salt, fish sauce to your taste. Add the Chinese parsley last, just before removing from the pan.

To assemble the lumpia, you will need:

Lumpia Sauce

Bring the water to a boil. Add the sugar to the boiling water and stir until dissolved. Remove 1/4 cup of the syrup, add the cornstarch, blend into a slurry and return to the pot. Remove from heat when thickened. Mix in garlic.
