  • 24 lumpia wrappers
  • ½ cup sweetened jackfruit, sliced into strips
  • Vegetable oil

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1

Peel bananas and cut lengthwise into two halves. Roll in sugar.

Step 2

Separate wrappers into individual sheets. On a flat working surface, lay wrapper like a diamond. Arrange 1 banana slice in the middle of diamond and place 2 to 3 jackfruit strips lengthwise on top of banana slice.

Step 3

Fold bottom pointed end of wrapper over filling. Fold side ends of the sheet inward and roll into a log. Wet the pointed edge of the wrapper to completely seal.

Step 4

Roll sealed spring rolls in sugar.

Step 5

Repeat with the remaining bananas.
