Lumpia Dipping Sauce

Lumpia is delicious all on its own, but occasionally I like serving them Vietnamese style — on a bed of rice noodles atop a lettuce leaf with a side of tangy dipping sauce.



Here’s my recipe for the dipping sauce.  Don’t let the fish sauce deter you — this is a must-try the next time you make lumpia.

Give it a try and let me know how you like it.

Here’s the link to my Lumpia recipe if you’d like to try it as well. 🙂


Lumpia Dipping Sauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white, granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
Mix all the ingredients together. Serve with lumpia and ENJOY!

    Good recipe! May I suggest using real authentic Palm sugar. It will make a tasty difference in place of regular sugar! Palm sugar is wonderful! It’s what I use every time I make Thai Papaya Salad! Cheers!!!

    • Hi Gerri! Thanks for the tip about using Palm Sugar! 🙂

        • You’re most welcome, and no worries about your “tardiness!” 🙂 As for Latiya with masa harina, that’s not how it’s traditionally made. I believe you’re referring to the dessert called “kalamai,” which is made with masa harina.
