#143 Banana Turon

A favorite Pinoy snack, banana turon (banana wrapped in rice rolls) is a popular street food and is a variant of the banana-que.

The sliced saba (plantain) bananas are fried, rolled with strips of langka (jackfruit) in the lumpia wrapper (rice wrappers) and fried to a golden crispness. Caramelized brown sugar is also melted in the last few minutes of frying to coat the banana turon and add a sugary sweetness.

The crispy rolls combined with the sweetness of the banana and jackfruit make this snack a classic dessert in the Filipino kitchen table.

Bon appetit!
