Next, build your workspace. Remove the eggroll wrapper one by one from its package and then cover it with a wet paper towel to prevent it from drying out.

7

Take 1 tsp of cardamom powder or crush cardamom seeds like I did. Then mix it with the plantation slices. This dish relies on the sugar within the plantains, so it's not overly sweet.

Place a banana slice diagonally on the wrapper. Roll the fruit and wrapper once. Pull in the right and left edges and then roll forward again. Put a small dab of H2O at the top to seal the roll.
