Banana Turon

Sweet and Crispy Banana Turon


1 pack Lumpia Wrapper (30 pieces)

15 pieces ripe cooking banana, sliced lengthwise thick

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup cooking oil

2 teaspoon cornstarch, diluted in 1/2 cup water and microwave for a minute


Place a banana on the middle of the wrapper. 

Cover the banana with a teaspoon of sugar. 

Fold the portion of the wrapper nearest you over the banana until just covered. 

Turn the wrapper again to enclose the banana securely. 

Moisten the left and right hand edges of the wrapper with cornstarch egg. 

Fold over the corners and press down firmly to seal, making an envelope. 

Moisten the flap of the envelope with cornstarch and turn, rolling firmly into a cylinder. 

Seal firmly. Set aside, seam side down. Repeat with remaining slices.

Heat oil in a wok to 375 degrees. 

Place 1/2 cup of brown sugar first then 4 or 5 turon at a time in the hot oil. 

Fry until crisp and golden. 

Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
