Turon Recipe (Banana Lumpia with Caramel)

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.

    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!

    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..
