Turon


Deep-fried bananas are probably one of the most popular street food available throughout South-East Asia. There are so many versions of it; but, this unique bananas spring roll is so simple to make and tastes fantastic. It's known as Philippine’s Turon. The spring roll wrapper is filled with banana, lightly sweetened with sugar, and deep-fried until it's crispy and golden brown. You can enjoy the Turon as it is or dust it with some confectioner’s sugar. Yum!


Turon

Ingredients

12 Sheets of Spring Roll Wrappers (5 x 5 inches)
3 Ripe Saba or Burro Bananas, peeled and cut into 4 pieces for each banana
Coconut or Brown Sugar
Peanut or Vegetable Oil for deep-frying
Confectioner’s Sugar (optional)

Method

Place the banana on the bottom third of the spring roll wrapper. Sprinkle some sugar on top of the banana. Wet the edge of the wrapper with water, fold, roll up, then fold in both sides and roll into a small cylinder.

In a wok or a large skillet, heat 2 inches of vegetable oil to about 350˚F (180˚C). Test the temperature by carefully placing a spring roll in it. If the oil foams but not too vigorously upon contact, it is hot enough. Add the rolls without crowding, and fry until crisp and golden brown, about 5 to 6 minutes.

Remove the spring rolls with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Let cool slightly and serve warm with some confectioner’s sugar, if desired.

  1. Angie, my neighbor just gave me some last week. They were pretty good. She added some jackfruits inside with the bananas, coat the rolls with sugar before frying. I am going to make some too :)

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
