Turon {Fried Banana Rolls}

This Filipino snack contains saba bananas that may be eaten raw or cooked. These bananas share the same nutritional value as potatoes. Its use is very common among many Filipino dishes.

Servings: 10


  • 10 pieces of spring roll wrappers
  • 5 saba bananas, half
  • 1 cup of jackfruit, sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten

Peel each individual wrapper separately until you have 10 pieces and set aside on another plate.

Slice the jackfruit and saba bananas lengthwise.

Place the halved saba banana on the corner of the wrapper. Sprinkle brown sugar on the top. Add the 4 pieces of the sliced jack fruit on top.

Roll the wrapper once towards the other side. Then fold the right and left edges towards the middle. Continue rolling. Leave the edge of the wrapper unwrapped and brush some of the beaten egg to ensure that the roll holds together. Finish wrapping. 

Follow link on how to fold turon:

*Make sure you wrap tightly to ensure that the turon doesn't fall apart when cooking.

Heat oil in pan and begin frying both sides. The turon should begin to turn a golden brown.

Optional: Before frying you can roll the turon in extra brown sugar to add more sweetness and crunch.
