Is Turon A Filipino Delicacy?
Turon is a popular snack here in the Philippines. It’s often sold as street food.
But nowadays, you’ll find this Filipino delicacy on restaurant menus.
Suffice it to say, it has gone beyond to being just a street food.😍
Turon is made by rolling slices of ripe bananas in brown sugar and wrapping them in spring roll wrappers.
Most of the time, the variety of bananas used for it is called saba. This is a native type of banana.
However, we tried using just the regular banana and it tasted just fine.👍
Some people make their turon with jackfruit. They would wrap it together with the banana, adding another layer of flavor.
The rolls are then deep-fried until they turn crispy and golden brown. Of course, deep-frying them in Minola oil is the only way to go.
Turon is typically served warmly and enjoyed as a sweet treat by locals and visitors alike. It’s a delicious and beloved dessert in Filipino cuisine.
Turon Ingredients And Procedure
The good thing about turon is that you can make it anytime. You don’t need any hifalutin ingredients for it.
As long as you have some bananas and some good old spring roll wrappers, you are good to go.
So if you’re running out of options for dessert, you can always have some good old reliable turon.
Spring roll wrappers
Cooking oil (We only use Minola cooking oil) 👍 😍
Jackfruit strips (That is if you have some. If not, it’s okay.)
1. Peel and slice the bananas. Cut them into sizes suitable for rolling inside the lumpia wrappers.
2. Lay out a lumpia wrapper with one corner facing you, forming a diamond shape.
3. Place a piece of the prepared banana near the bottom corner of the diamond-shaped wrapper.
4. Add a few strips of jackfruit (if you have some) on top of the banana.
5. Sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar over the banana and jackfruit.
6. Fold the bottom corner of the wrapper over the banana and jackfruit, covering them completely.
7. Fold the left and right corners of the wrapper inward.
8. Moisten the top corner of the wrapper with water or a beaten egg to act as glue.
9. Roll the turon upward to seal it tightly.
10. Heat cooking oil (We use Minola.) in a deep-frying pan over medium heat. The oil should be enough to submerge the turon completely. Carefully add the turon into the pan, seam side down.
11. Fry the turon until they turn golden brown and crispy, usually for about 2-3 minutes on each side.
12. Remove the fried turon from the oil and drain the excess oil by placing them on a plate lined with paper towels.
13. Serve the turon warm and enjoy this delicious Filipino delicacy!
How To Make Turon Stay Crispy
Sometimes when you cook too many pieces of turon, the remaining ones tend to end up soggy after some time.
If you want your turon to stay crispy, make sure to drain the excess oil.
Also, avoid overcrowding them while frying. It’s best to fry them in batches. This ensures there is enough space between them in the pan.
Overcrowding the pan can lead to uneven cooking and can cause them to become less crispy.
The best way to make turon stay crispy is by serving them immediately.
The longer it sits, the more it tends to lose its crispiness.
You won’t regret eating them right away because they are so good.
