Turon is a Filipino delicacy usually served as a merienda or snack.
It is also sold on the streets, near schools and offices since it is a
food-on-the-go and budget friendly.

Turon is actually a spring roll of ripe banana. Some would include
slices of jackfruit, chopped peanuts, cheese, peanut butter or cinnamon.

This afternoon I made some Turon with sliced jack fruit, chopped peanuts
and a sprinkle of sugar. To tweak the taste I added some mint. All
wrapped in a spring roll and fried into golden brown. Sarap!

Here's another banana recipe:


Hey, how about an appetizer?

Those turon look scrumptious, a great specialty to learn about!

Oh My Gosh, Ela. I almost posted my fried banana egg roll the other day, but I wasn't happy with my photos. This looks so similar and delicious;)!
