My Filipino friend, Rose, has us over for "happy hour" at her house last weekend and she made this dessert. It was so yummy, I had to try it for myself at my house! I'm not usually a big fan of fried foods, but I figure the nutrition of the banana balances out the deep frying (:
4 Soba Bananas or 2 regular bananas
Can of Jack Fruit
4 eggroll wrappers
Oil for frying
Vanilla Ice Cream (optional)
Chocolate Syrup (optional)
Cut each banana in half length wise. If using regular bananas, cut each banana in half cross wise and then again length wise. Drain jack fruit and cut two pieces length wise into half. Place one eggroll wrapper diagonally on a workable surface. Place jack fruit on lower 1/3 of wraper. Place one piece of banana on top of the jack fruit. Begin rolling from the corner closest to the fruit. When you get about half way, fold in the sides (like a burrito) and continue rolling. Repeat to make 4 total.
Place 1" of oil in wok or deep fryer and heat on medium high until hot. Fry one piece at a time for 1-2 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
Serve with a scoop of icecream and drizzle with chocolate syrup if desired.
