Lumpiang Singkamas Recipe – Without question, Lumpia has to be the most ubiquitous food on many occasions, such as birthdays, Christenings, fiestas, and weddings. This crispy Lumpia has successfully captured the taste of Filipino kids and grown-ups alike. It is often served with the pancit as a side dish, although many also love eating them with rice along with other dishes.
The Lumpiang Singkamas, as the name implies, is your traditional lumpia but with a twist. Like other lumpia, this has different vegetables and, depending on your preference, some meat. What makes this unique, however, is that we use Singkamas (turnip) as the main ingredient.
The turnip gives the food a distinct taste and makes every bite crunchy and yummy. You can dip this in your choice of sweet sauce or vinegar with minced garlic, onion, and pepper.
