  • Place the saba banana in the brown sugar, making sure that it’s covered with it.
  • Put the banana on the lumpia wrapper, located on the lower 1/2 in a horizontal position. Add jackfruit pieces around the banana.
  • Place the tip of the lumpia wrapper on top of the banana. Also, fold the tips from the left and right.
  • Roll the wrapper very well to achieve the shape of a log. Use water for the top tip.
  • Use 1/2 to 1-inch vegetable oil to fry the banana lumpia at 350 F degrees.
