Ingredients:  
2 pounds ground pork
1 cup green onions, finely chopped
8 ounces water chestnuts, finely chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded

Directions:
In a bowl, combine pork, green onions, egg, water chestnuts, carrots, garlic, soy sauce, salt, and pepper until well distributed. Separate wrappers into individual sheets. On a flat working surface, lay the wrapper like a diamond. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of meat mixture on the middle of the wrapper. Fold the bottom pointed end of wrapper over filling. Fold side ends of the sheet inward and roll tightly into a log about 3/4-inch thick and 5-inch length. Wet the pointed edge of the wrapper with a dab of water to completely seal. Repeat with the remaining mixture. In a pan over medium heat, heat about 1 inch of oil. Fry lumpia in batches, turning on sides as needed, until golden brown and crisp and meat is cooked through.
Remove from oil and drain on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Serve with sweet and sour sauce or ketchup.

Personal Notes:
When preparing lumpia one must feel relaxed. If the preparer of lumpia is tense, the dish will come out tasteless. Lumpia can change your mood, whether tired or sad. Lumpia at the end of a long day can lift your spirits and unwind. It rests softly like a blanket in your mouth. Lumpia is an explosion of exquisite flavor and texture
