Lumpia is a spring roll of Chinese origin commonly found in Indonesia and the Philippines. The term lumpia derives from Hokkien lunpia (Chinese: 潤餅; pinyin: rùnbǐng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: jūn-piáⁿ, lūn-piáⁿ), which is an alternate term for popiah. Spring rolls of different shapes, sizes and fillings have been a popular snack in East Asia and Southeast Asia for centuries. It was a seasonal food consumed during the spring, started as a pancake filled with the new season’s spring vegetables, a welcome change from the preserved foods of the long winter months.[7] The recipes, both fried and fresh versions, were brought by Chinese immigrants from the Fujian province of China to Southeast Asia and became popular when they settled in Indonesia and the Philippines.
