Frozen lumpia is rolled up with raw meat. Always make sure you are cooking it to an internal temperature of 165° F.
Recommended: Deep Fryer
Deep frying lumpia is the quickest and easiest method. Pre-heat fryer to 350°F and cook until golden brown and the inside temperature reads 165° F. Usually takes around 5 minutes.
You can also deep fry in a pot of oil at medium temperature. Signs that the lumpia are that the lumpia is golden brown and bubbles more vigorously.
Shallow Pan Frying
This is the traditional way lumpia is usually cooked. The main advantage is you use much less oil than deep frying. Otherwise, it is more labor intensive and takes much more time. Since the lumpia may not be fully submerged in the oil, you must frequently turn the lumpia over until the wrapper is firm and crisp. This is critical if you do not want the lumpia to develop holes in the wrapper from the inside moisture trying to escape. Pre-heat oil at a medium to medium-high temperature. Do not overcrowd the pan. Cook until golden brown and the inside temperature reads 165° F. Usually cooks in approximately 8-10 minutes.
We have not personally tried cooking raw, frozen lumpia in the air fryer, so we can not say if this is a good method or how to do it. We've heard mixed results. Some people say it works and others say it's not good. Although, we can highly recommend using the air fryer for reheating cooked lumpia.
