How to make Filipino Banana Turron (or Turon) dessert


4 pieces ripe cooking bananas (saba) or plantain bananas, peeled and sliced into 4 inches long
6 pieces rectangular springroll (lumpia) wrappers, quartered
1/2 cup jackfruit (langka), sliced into 1/4-inch strips
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour or cornstarch, dissolve in 1/4 cup of water
oil for deep-frying, recommended is olive oil

Cooking directions:

Dredge or roll the banana strips in sugar. Arrange 1 sugared banana strip with 2 strips of jackfruit on each piece of the spring roll wrapper. Roll it into small cylinders then fold and seal the wrapper ends with a little flour or cornstarch dissolved in water. Preheat pot with oil then deep-fry the rolls over medium heat. While cooking, sprinkle each roll with sugar and toss it until it's golden brown. Drain the cooked turron to remove excess oil. You may use paper towel or strainer for draining. Serve warm.

      Banana Cue is similar to turon except that no wrapper is needed. I love it too. Thanks Jill.

      Yes NYC is nice. We also have some Filipino stores and restaurants here at Washington DC Metro but not as many as in NYC and Jersey City. Thanks BkCreative for the comment.

      Sounds great and looks great! The good thing about living in NYC is that I can find all the ingredients - or just go to one of many Filipino restaurants or bakeries.

      Yum and thanks!
