Ingredients:  
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium yellow onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium carrot, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1 lb ground pork
12 oz water chestnuts, 1 can, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons soy sauce

Directions:
Make the filling: Heat the oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat.Add the onion, garlic, ginger, and carrot. Cook for 4 minutes, or until the onion is slightly translucent. Add the ground pork and cook for about 6 minutes, or until cooked through. Add the water chestnuts, salt, pepper, and soy sauce. Stir for 2 minutes, then mix in the green onion and cilantro. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool.
Heat about an inch (2 cm) of canola oil in a deep, medium frying pan until it reaches 300F (150C).
Lay out one lumpia wrapper in a diamond shape and spoon 2 tablespoons of filling at the bottom of the wrapper, leaving about an inch and a half (3 cm) of space from the bottom point. Fold the bottom point over the filling, then fold in the edges to create an envelope shape. Roll the wrapper toward the top point. Brush the top point with egg wash and finish the roll to seal the end. Carefully place four to five lumpia at a time in the hot oil. Frying on each side for 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown. Note: If the lumpia are cooking too fast or burning, reduce the heat. Remove the lumpia from the oil and drain on a wire rack or paper towels. Sprinkle with a garnish of cilantro and serve with sweet chili dipping sauce. Optional: Cut lumpia in half. Enjoy!

Personal Notes:
When preparing lumpia one must be tender. If the preparer of lumpia is heartbroken, the dish will come out burned. Lumpia can cure any illness, whether physically or mentally--at least that was Eli's firm belief, and Jan's too although I haven't given sufficient credit to for quite some time. Lumpia will make you eat like a pig. The satisfying feeling of each bite is as amazing as a 5 star hotel.
