- The dry hot air makes sure the texture of the lumpia is crispy on the outside and warm and tender on the inside.
- Depending on the size, frozen lumpia will take just 15 minutes or less to cook in the air fryer!
- No need to turn on the oven! Keep it cool and save electricity by using your air fryer.

🔥How To Make Frozen Lumpia In Air Fryer
Preheat the air fryer: Turn on your air fryer and set the temperature to 375F. Let it preheat for 3-5 minutes.
Add your frozen lumpia: To the bottom of the air fryer basket, add the frozen lumpia in a single layer. Spray very lightly with cooking spray if you like them extra crispy.
Air fry frozen lumpia: Set the timer for 15 minutes. At the 8-minute mark, use tongs to flip over. Cook for an additional 7-8 minutes or until the lumpia is cooked through on the inside and crispy on the outside.
Remove and serve: With tongs, removed the cooked lumpia and serve hot with lumpia sauce.
🥣Lumpia Dipping Sauce
The best way to enjoy lumpia is with a delicious dipping sauce! We love to use a mix of soy sauce, white vinegar, and garlic. But you can also enjoy lumpia with sweet and sour sauce, chili garlic sauce, ketchup, or any other dipping sauce you like!
👩🏻🍳Air Fryer Cooking Tips
- Some recipes require no preheating of the air fryer. In the case of frozen foods, pre-heating is a must. This will ensure that the food defrosts and cooks properly.
- When air frying frozen foods, it’s always best to cook them in a single layer with no overlapping. This will help prevent them from steaming which could make them soggy.
- The time and temperature suggested are a baseline to start with. How long to cook frozen lumpia in the air fryer will depend on your individual appliance and how big your lumpia is. Always check the inside with a kitchen thermometer to ensure the food is safe.
🧊Storing and Reheating
Storing: Once frozen lumpia is air fried, its best served immediately. If you do have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days.
Reheating: To reheat, pop them back in the air fryer at 375F for a few minutes until warmed through. Serve with dipping sauce and enjoy!`
