Intermediate

Ingredients
  • Oil, for frying
  • 6 large firm-ripe bananas
  • 1 package Filipino lumpia wrappers, available in the freezer section of most Asian markets
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • Confectioners' sugar, for serving
  • Honey, for serving
Directions

Heat a deep fryer to 350 degrees F.

While the oil is heating, prepare the bananas: Peel and halve the whole banana lengthwise. Carefully peel the lumpia wrappers apart, taking care not to tear, and, working 1 at a time, wrap each banana half in 1 of the lumpia wrappers, eggroll fashion, and brush the edges with the egg white to seal.

Once the oil has reached the desired temperature, fry the bananas, 2 or 3 at a time, or as many as will fit comfortably in the fryer, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. (Do not crowd.) Transfer to paper-lined plates to drain.

Cut each wrapped banana on the diagonal and serve sprinkled with confectioners' sugar and drizzled with honey.
