Turon or Banana Lumpia is a Philippine snack that is made out of cardaba / saba bananas and jackfruit wrapped in spring roll wrapper and deep fried
- 8 pcs saba bananas
- 1/2 cup jackfruit, sliced
- 8 pcs spring roll wrapper
- 1 cup brown sugar
- vegetable oil
- toasted sesame seeds, to garnish
- Cut a peeled banana lengthwise in half.
- Roll the sliced bananas in brown sugar to coat them lightly with brown sugar, set aside coated bananas.
- Lay down the spring roll wrapper then place half of the saba banana, 3 slices of jackfruit then the other half of the saba banana. 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.
- In a wok pour enough oil for deep frying, then add remaining brown sugar. Heat oil in medium heat and once the brown sugar melts and rises to the top carefully place the wrapped bananas.
- Deep fry turon until it turns golden brown and coated with the melted sugar.
- Remove from wok, drain excess oil then serve.
Yummy! There are similar snacks here in Mauritius – deep fried brinjals in a batter is extremely popular.
Delicious its look, for me, I love the goreng pisang at Malaysia.
wow! favorite merienda ko yan!
This recipe really sounds simple but delicious. I think I will go searching for some jackfruit and try to make this 🙂
Whoa- this looks way too good! I want to make these for my family!
Oh, how I wish that was a typical street food here at two o’clock. But then I might weigh much, much more. This looks heavenly.
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.
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
Love this esp. with langka strips! 😀
Wrapped up and fried banana?! Yes please! 🙂
