Turon (Banana Fritter)


Craving for something sweet and yum?  Turon it is!

What you need:

Saba (plantain bananas), each one cut in half lengthwise

spring roll wrappers

brown sugar

about 2-3 cups cooking oil depending on your pan and how much you are cooking

What you need to do:

  1.  Get one of your spring roll wrappers.  Sprinkle some brown sugar in the middle.  Lay one slice of banana on it, and then sprinkle some more brown sugar on top of your banana.  Turn over the sides of the wrapper onto the banana and roll, like you would for a spring roll.  Some would use water to seal the edge, I don’t bother.  Just lay it on a plate with the end edge under so it doesn’t open up
  2. With the oil in your pan, turn on the heat to medium.  When the oil is hot, sprinkle brown sugar on the oil.  Just eyeball how much you need to put.  Remember, this sugar will coat your turon later.
  3. The brown sugar would dissolve in the oil and start to float.  When that happens, gently put your wrapped bananas in the oil and cook, turning over every so often to coat each one with the caramel, and continue cooking until they look crispy.
  4. Drain and serve.
