How to cook “lumpia”

Lumpia, also known as popiah or spring roll, is a Filipino food that has many variations such as lumpiang shanghai, lumpiang sariwa (fresh lumpia) and lumpiang togue (bean sprouts).

At first, I thought, making lumpia is not difficult. However, when I tried preparing it, I said to myself that that might be the last that I would be preparing lumpia.
