What is it?
These thin pastry sheets are made of wheat flour, water, oil, and salt, and their square shape makes them ideal for wrapping the fried Filipino spring rolls known as lumpia. Don’t confuse them with egg roll wrappers, which are thicker, or rice paper wrappers (for Vietnamese summer rolls), which are round and made of rice flour.
