Turon - Banana Fritters with Homemade Spring Roll Wrappers


As per wiki , Turon (Philippine Spanish: turón de banana or turón plátano), also known as lumpiyang saging (Tagalog, banana lumpia), is a Filipino snack made of bananas or of jackfruit, or both rolled in a spring roll wrapper and fried. Other fillings can also be used, including sweet potato, mango, cheddar cheese and coconut.

Turón is a popular street food amongst Filipinos. These easy to do banana fritters in wrappers are a favorite of most Filipino households for a merienda snack or a dessert. These are best served warm.

Second recipe for this week BM -- under the theme --Bring on the Fritters.
Ingredients

5 Bananas - ripened, peeled, sliced in half, lengthwise
10 Spring roll wrappers - see recipe below
1 Cup Brown Sugar
Oil for frying

Method
Roll each banana slice in the brown sugar and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan on slow flame.


On a dry surface, place the wrappers. 


Place the banana slice in the middle of the wrapper.


Brush the edges all around with water to seal.


Tuck in the edges on the left and right.

 
Roll it in a long cylinder. 

When oil is hot enough, add two of the wrapped turon. Rotate the wraps or lumpia around the pan for even cooking. Cook the turon for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side or till they turn a golden brown. Drain on paper towel or parchment paper to remove excess oil. Serve hot.

Spring Roll Wrappers

Ingredients

1 Cup Flour
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
Water for kneading 

Method 

Sift flour into a medium bowl and make a well in the center. Add cold water in well. Knead lightly until a smooth dough has formed. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a big roti. Cut into squares ( bigger than the length of the banana.

My Notes:
Use brown sugar because it does not burn like granulated sugar does when cooking.
