myFresha-licious: Turon with Cinnamon

Turon with Cinnamon

turon with cinnamon
I have posted more than a year ago about one of most Filipino’s favorite snack – turonTuron is made of banana (saba variety) wrapped in a spring roll wrapper, deep fried, and coated with caramelized sugar.

Here’s another variation of turon based on  Marco Sarmiento’s recipe (I revised his recipe)


Saba Banana, sliced vertically into 4 pieces – as desired
Spring Roll wrappers
Brown Sugar – 50 g.
Cinnamon Powder – 2 g.
Cooking Oil for frying

Cooking Procedure:

1. Remove the bananas from its cover.  You can slice it into 4 strips or just halves
2. Mix the sugar and cinnamon.
3. Roll the bananas on the sugar-cinnamon mixture, then wrap them with a spring roll.  Make sure that both ends are properly sealed.
4. In a frying pan, heat the oil.  When the oil starts to smoke, drop the wrapped bananas and fry. You can deep fry it or make sure that the amount of oil you are going to use can cover up to half of the wrapped bananas
5. Brown both sides of the turon. Drain on a paper towel.

Coat with the remaining sugar-cinnamon before serving, if desired.
