Turon Recipe

Lumpia Wrappers – If you are not from the Phillipines, you can get them from your neighborhood Asian or Filipino store
Saba slices – This is a type of banana that we normally use when cooking. Not sure if they are available outside the country.
Brown Sugar
Sesame Seeds
Oil for frying

Cut the lumpia wrapper in half and use one half to wrap the banana.

There are two ways to add sugaar. You can mix the sugar and sesame with the banana before the wrapping part. Fry until golden. This isn’t as sweet as most turons so I like pairing this diabetic friendly version with a diabetic non-friendly ice cream. I love how the hot, cold, crunchy, chewy combination.

Or, you can wrap the bananas and fry them in oil that has several tablespoons of sugar. For the dozen of mini turons that we made, I think we only used 3 tablespoons of sugar. Once the turons are irresistibly golden, remove from heat and sprinkle the sesame seeds. Yum yum..

Oh, don’t cover the turon while it is hot or it will lose its crunch.
