Lumpia, Filipino eggrolls

It's Friday! Let's all go to Gollum's at http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com/ and join the potluck and taste what everybody is bringing!. See you there!
I decided to bring some Filipino eggrolls that we call "lumpia".
Sorry, I forgot to take pictures before I started everything. As you can see here, most of the eggrolls have already been rolled so I only have a few filling left. But I can tell you what my ingredients are.

cooking oil, about 2 tbsps for cooking and then a lot for frying the eggrolls after they are rolled.
onion, chopped into small pieces
garlic, crushed
garlic salt
salt and pepper to taste
pork, cut up into small cubes
potatoes, cut up into small cubes
shrimp, cut up into small pieces
bean sprout
cabbage, sliced into small pieces
carrots, sliced into small pieces
eggroll wrappers

Sorry, I can't give you the exact measurement cause I just throw in whatever I have available. It really does not matter if you have more of one or the other, just a matter of preference. I think it comes out just as good, no matter what you do.

Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil. Cook the garlic and then drop the onions and cook until a little transparent. Add the pork and potatoes and cook, add the shrimp and the veggies. Season.
After it is cooked, drain throroughly and let cool.

This is how it will look like.
Wrap in eggroll wrappers individually just like below.
I seal the ends with water or egg white.

Store whatever you will not use into a ziploc bag and freeze for later use.
Heat the oil until it is REALLY hot.
Drop the wrapped eggrolls one by one being careful not to break the skin. Turn after one side is brown and cook the other side until brown.
I like to either put them in a strainer after they are cooked before putting them in a serving platter or just line up the serving platter with a paper towel to drain or blot the excess oil.
Now we're ready to eat. You can use sweet and sour sauce to dip them into. I like to use vinegar with crushed garlic, salt and pepper and hot pepper to dip mine.

Enjoy! Now, let's go taste the other food!
Thanks Gollum, for hosting the potluck again!
