Turon


Turon

Turon or Banana Lumpia is a Philippine snack that is made out of cardaba bananas and jackfruit wrapped in spring roll wrapper and deep fried.  A popular street food which you can see almost everywhere together with Camote Cue (Deep Fried Sweet Potatoes covered with caramelized brown sugar) and Banana Cue (Deep Fried Bananas covered with caramelized brown sugar) when 2PM hits the clock.

I am not quite sure of the history of turon but there is a similar name dish existing in Spain but the ingredients are totally different as their turon includes marzipan and sugar, this too is sold in the streets of Spain specially during the Christmas season, but apart from the name, the sugar and where it’s sold the similarity ends there.  Having that said I guess they might not be related to each other.

Ingredients

10 pieces of saba / cardaba bananas
1/2 cup jackfruit slices
15 pcs spring roll wrapper
brown sugar
vegetable oil

Method

1. Cut a peeled banana lengthwise in 3 pieces.
2. Roll the sliced bananas in brown sugar, and then set aside.
3. Lay down the spring roll wrapper then place 1 slice of banana, 3 slices of jackfruit then another slice of banana on top.  Start rolling the wrapper until halfway, fold the left and right edges, continue rolling then secure it on the other end by damping it with water.
4. Heat up a wok, place oil and when oil is hot enough deep fry turon until it turns golden brown.
5. Remove from wok, remove excess oil then serve.

  1. When I was first introduced to this delicious treat, it immediately became my #1 most favorite dish…scary to say, it even beat out chocolate *gasp!* I have never had it with jackfruit (never had jackfruit) but just thinking of the banana version is making me drool.

  2. My niece who’s 3 yrs old always asks my mom to make Turon every time she visits. she’s half Filipino & it’s so nice to see her enjoy my childhood fav
