    Oh yummy! Another great dish! In Singapore we call this “po piah”. I guess it may have derived from fukkien! Never had it without the skin though but I guess it would be healthier this way! hehe..

    I also like to eat Lumpia this way. ^_^

  11. I’ve been having lots of (deep fried) Lumpia in the last couple of days here in Manila, so this naked version would be a lovely light change – perhaps that’s what I’ll go looking for this afternoon!

  12. What a great idea! And a great recipe.
