Turon Recipe (Banana Lumpia)
Turon is a Filipino snack from plantain bananas and jackfruit rolled in brown sugar and wrapped in lumpia wrapper that is fried to a crisp. Easy and yummy!
- 5 pieces Saba banana or plantain banana
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup jackfruit - cut into strips
- 10 Lumpia or spring roll wrapper
- 2 cups cooking oil
Prepare the lumpia wrappers by peeling them apart, then cover the peeled wrappers with damp paper towel to keep them moist.
Peel the saba bananas and cut each into halves lengthwise.
Place the brown sugar into a flat dish and roll the slices of banana completely covering each slice with generous amount of brown sugar.
Place banana slice along the end of a lumpia wrapper closer to you. Add strips of jackfruit along the length of the banana. Fold both sides (left and right) of the wrapper inward towards the banana. Use water to moisten the wrappers so it is easier to fold. Now roll it towards the other end away from you. Use water again to seal the edge.
Heat oil in a frying pan over low heat. Once the oil is hot, add some of the lumpia-wrapped bananas and fry for 3-5 minutes each side or until the wrapper turns golden brown. Drain them on a paper towel and serve while warm and the wrapper is crispy.
