What is Turon?
Turon, sometimes called banana lumpia, is a popular sweet street snack in the Philippines. Eaten as a snack or dessert, it consists of sliced saba bananas rolled in brown sugar, wrapped in lumpia or spring roll skin, deep fried, and then coated in hard caramel. In addition to the banana, other fillings such as jackfruit, mango, coconut, ube, and even cheese can often be included.
Native to the Philippines, Saba bananas are shorter and thicker than your standard banana. They are square in shape and more starchy, making them the perfect plantains. Lumpia is found in the Philippines and Indonesia and is similar to spring rolls. Their wrappers are typically circular, thinner, and have a more papery or crepe texture compared to spring roll wrappers. Obtaining Saba Bananas and Lumpia Wraps can be difficult. In this case, you can easily substitute regular banana and spring roll wrappers.
Turon should be consumed the day it is made, but it can also be prepared ahead of time and frozen for up to three months before frying.
