How to cook Turon or Banana Spring Rolls
Turon Recipe also known-as lumpiang saging. It is a deep fried caramelized banana spring rolls made of thinly sliced Saba bananas and a slice of jackfruit, dusted with brown sugar, rolled in a spring roll wrapper then deep-fried.
It is one of the favorite street food in the Philippines sold alongside with banana cue, camote cue, and maruya. They are sold along sidewalks by ambulant vendors on rolling carts. During my college years, this is my break time snack because it is very affordable.
When buying the Saba ingredient, do not choose overripe because when you deep-fried it, they will become mushy. You can store the uncooked Turon inside the chiller.
When cooking Turon, make sure to fry it in hot oil. This is the secret in making this snack crispy. It’s best to eat this Filipino dessert while still warm.
