"Turon" (Lumpia or spring roll wrapper filled with bananas)

These are "burong saging" . I use it to make "turon" or spring roll wrapper filled with bananas and jack fruits.

"Turon" is a lumpia wrapper or egg roll wrapper or spring roll wrapper filled with bananas. You could use regular banana, plantain banana but "burong saging" are still the best. You could buy it here in the west mostly in asian store but to my surprise they have it sometimes here in our local grocery store. So when they do, I make sure that I buy it because my husband loves "turon" and bananaq. Since I have to go to the asian grocery store to buy some fresh fish, meat and other produce I went ahead and bought some. I found some good looking "burong" banana so I bought it and I made some "turon" today. You could actually make a lot, freeze them and prepare them when ever you have company or when ever you are craving for something sweet and crunchy.

What you need are, lumpia or spring roll wrapper,banana, optional jack fruit and sugar.

Banana cut according to your desire size. I cut it into four to make it smaller and easier to bite. ( bit bigger than lumpiang shanghai size)
Put 2 slices of banana in the "lumpia" wrapper
Add your jack fruit or sugar optional ( sugar is not needed, unless you want it extra sweet) .

Deep fry until golden brown. I put it in myprepared platter with some paper towel.
"Turon" and ice tea or lemonade will be on "our meza" on this very hot day. Yup just few days back it was cold now it is scorching hot. So this is just perfect, warm,crunchy,sweet turon and ice cold ice tea or lemonade will be just fine.
