Caramel Sauce (or you can just buy the ready-made one)
Preheat oil to 350 degrees in a saucepan or a deep fryer.
Set two small bowls side by side, one with a scoop of brown mixed with the five spice, one with water. Separate the egg roll wrappers you are going to use, one per half banana.
Add the sliced banana, some jackfruit and brown sugar (mixed with Chinese 5 spices).
Wrap them up like the pictures above and place in the preheated oil.
Deep fry until the color changes to crispy brown.
Set aside and serve hot.
How to Make the Caramel Sauce:
Mix sugar, water, and the corn syrup in a large saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and the mixture starts boiling.
Swirl the liquid around the pan (do not stir from this point on), so that the caramel doesn’t burn. Continue to cook until the caramel turns an even amber color. Then remove from the heat and let it stand for about 30 seconds.
Add the heavy cream. Be cautious when pouring the heavy cream into the mixture. Stir the mixture with a spatula scraping the sides of the pot and combining all the ingredients.
Add the butter and stir until combined. As you stir, you will see the caramel come to the consistency that you want and look like caramel.
Let the mixture cool down for a few minutes and then drizzle over your banana spring rolls. This recipe makes about 1 ¼ cups.
