I found this on They were offerring an assortment of Asian recipes for Chanukkah, and this dessert influenced by Filipino cuisine piqued my interest. This recipe makes 16 lumpia.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 whole bananas, cut into quarters lengthwise
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • canola oil, for deep-frying


  1. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and coat bananas with the mixture.
  2. Take 1 spring roll wrapper and place 1 banana strip on bottom â…“ of wrapper. Fold in left and right side and roll up from bottom.
  3. Deep-fry on each side until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve while still warm.

SUPER EASY!!!! I definitely recommend a metal strainer and slowly lowering the lumpia into the oil, mostly to make sure it fries's itself shut. I made them with apple bananas... So good!
