Turon (Fried Banana Roll with Caramelized Sugar)

I have nothing to do today other than stare at my laptop blankly. I'm lazy to find movies or tv series to watch.  Not just that, my brain is lazy to process information right now.  I can smell the turon being cooked by Alma so I decided to post this entry on the recipe of turon.

Turon refers to the cousin of banana que.  It is made of banana (saba variety) wrapped in a spring roll wrapper, and similar to its banana que cousin, it is deep fried and coated with caramelized sugar.  You can check my recipe on banana que here Banana Que (Fried Banana with Caramelized Sugar)

It is so easy to cook turon. Here's the simplest yet delicious way to do it.


Banana (saba) – number of pieces to cook will depend on how many you have

Spring Roll wrappers

Brown Sugar – as desired

Cooking Oil

Optional Ingredients :  ripe langka (jackfruit)

Cooking Procedure:

1) Remove the bananas from its cover.  You can slice it into strips or just halves

2) If you are going to add ripe jackfruit, slice it into strips also

3) Coat the bananas and jackfruit strips with sugar, then wrap them with a spring roll.  Make sure that both ends are properly sealed.

4) In a frying pan, heat the oil.  When the oil starts to smoke, drop the wrapped bananas and fry. You can deep fry it or make sure that the amount of oil you are going to use can cover up to half of the wrapped bananas

5) Brown both sides of the turon. Drain.
