The secret is in the Lumpia wrapper

One of the challenges in making rolls is how to wrap it neat and firm. The secret is in the wrapper as it must be just- made. A day old wrapper is dry and unmanageable but a just- cooked ones are soft, pliable and easy to wet when closing the ends. It is a happy discovery to me that an old woman in my place still makes this tedious-to-prep lumpia wrapper. I just have to order a day before so she can make my order right in time. This is a happy find for me because those sold in our wet market is usually days old already. Here is our vegetable lumpia for dinner....tomorrow, i'll post the cheese sticks... And if i have time i'll take a photo of the old woman doing her thing and get a few tips from her.
