Raise your hand if you also like spring rolls! We sure do, but I wouldn’t say I like all the cabbage cutting and chicken shredding that I have to go through to make my favorite chicken veggie egg rolls.
Thanks to the air fryer frozen lumpia, I can now eat as many egg rolls as possible without preparing anything.
What Is Lumpia?
Lumpia is another name for egg or spring rolls famous in Indonesia and the Philippines. Basically, they are egg rolls filled with different stuffing (veg, non-veg, combined) and coated with lumpia wrappers.
Lumpia wrappers are thin paper-like or crepe-like pastry skin that encases savory or sweet fillings. It’s commonly served as an appetizer or snack, and it can be deep-fried or air-fried.
What Is an Air Fryer Frozen Lumpia?
Don’t let the name mess with your mind. Air fryer frozen lumpia are market-bought frozen egg rolls that we can air fry and enjoy without making any effort.
Is It Healthy to Eat Frozen Egg Rolls?
Of course, nothing beats handmade, but these come close. Some brands are better than others. I prefer those that are smaller and have the most fullness.
Can I Use an Air Fryer to Cook Frozen Lumpia?
YES! In this hot air kitchen device, anything frozen is possible. And unlike the traditional frying method, the rolls will turn out crispier and less oily.
How Long Does Frozen Lumpia Take to Cook?
The quickest method is to use the microwave, although this method does not guarantee crispier lumpia. It only takes 14 minutes to make air fryer egg rolls, which is far faster than waiting for the oven to prepare and cook.
Which Dip Sauce Will Go Best with Lumpia?
I like to dip my favorite air-fried lumpia into sweet chili sauce or sweet and sour sauce. It’s the ideal complement to the filling’s savory flavor. You may choose any dipping you prefer.
