It’s like turon but with a very unique twist, definitely this one is like no other. Valencia Triangulo is a Filipino style street food prepared with saba bananas, pinipig and jackfruit wrapped in spring roll pasty deep fried and coated with melted brown sugar.
If you have been to Malabon more specifically in Flores St, then most probably you would have heard of Aling Tessie’s Puto shop now known with its Valencia Traingulo. This very filling snack prepared with saba bananas, pinipig and jackfruit shaped in a triangle then cooked like turon is its most popular street food. Personally, I haven’t tried the real one but this street food is trending after Tikim TV You Tube Channel started to feature this humble snack. It may look like turon, but it is better in terms of everything, the filling, the size and the satisfaction that it gives.
There are no recipes to be found online for this one so I am recreating them at home with the information coming from that You Tube channel, it sounds straight forward from what it seems but the pinipig part is where I am not really sure, from the video, it looks like the pinipig was already cooked like a suman or kalamay rather than the kernels we know of so for our recipe will be using a pinipig kalamay and gave it a shot. The result was really good, I am not saying this is the authentic recipe but the ones I made was definitely two thumbs up.
If you happen to know the real recipe, please do share it as I want to make this recipe as near as the real thing as possible.
Prepare one large spring roll pastry then put 2 tbsp of pinipig kalamay, 1/2 saba banana and 1/2 jackfruit in the middle, fold into a triangle shape then seal the edges. Do it with the remaining ingredients.
Heat enough oil in a wok for deep frying, once it reaches 180C, add brown sugar and the spring roll wrapped bananas then deep fry in low heat until crisp and brown sugar has melted and coated the Valencia Triangulo.
