Vegetable and mung bean sprouts spring rolls or lumpiang gulay at togue is another great accompaniment for lugaw or goto. It is a Filipino vegetable roll that is serve with spiced vinegar. Yummmy!
So what is the secret in crispy lumpiang gulay? If there is too much filling in the roll it turns soggy quickly because of all the vegetable juices.. so make sure walang extra moist ang fillling. Before frying it, let it air dry for awhile until the wrapper becomes firm to touch. (Kapag wet ang lumpia or hindi firm kapag hinawakan or nalalasog, mas madali itong madudurog kapag prinito).
