Turon

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. Don’t know ’bout being “healthy” (with all the sugar and oil) pare pero it’s definitely an all time favourite! HAHAHAHAHA!

    Thanks for posting ’bout this! I’m looking forward to featuring this much loved “street food” also…

  2. 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!

    nakakamiss ang pinas… i love making that here in Norway and my in laws loves it specially when served with vanilla ice cream… Thanks for all the recipes… Cooking is the only escape and hobby i have right now that im on sick leave because of my pregnancy… More power to you…

  7. 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..

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

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

  10. Hehe. You can always minimize the sugar and oil pre. :P

    I know that most of us are aware of this but just so everyone is informed; Banana is rich in pottasium while Jackfruit is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, calcium, potassium, iron, sodium, zinc and niacin. Naks para na akong nutritionist nito.
