Turon or deep-fried banana rolls is a typical Filipino meryenda and dessert. This can usually be seen on the streets being peddled along with banana-que. In Makati, several jolly jeeps (stalls along the road; formerly jeepneys  that serve lunch) sell Turon along with other meryenda during the afternoon.

This delicious and healthy dessert is an all time Filipino favorite.  Have I mentioned that Turon is so affordable and also easy-to-prepare?

  1. Sweet! Finally found a turon recipe I’m not afraid of trying myself lol. The video is plus! Thanks for posting this :D

  2. I love turon!! And I also use only the TYJ brand lumpia wrapper.

  3. love turons! actually, you can omit putting brown sugar in the oil all together. if you put enough sugar in the wrapped banana/langka, and fry with low heat, the sugar in the turon will eventually carmelize and seep through the wrapper itself, creating an even crunchier dessert..

    one of my cheap thrills, esp. if its has langka! but my faves are banana-/ camote-q! lots of sugar please… :D

  6. Oh! I’ve never thought of using frozen saba… I usually look for the overripe bananas/plantains at the market. I’ll have to give this a try! And kudos for using the *best* wrapper… TYJ is the only one I use!
