Today marks the first post for the Kulinarya Cooking Club..
The first dish that we decided to make is Turon. This is a very common snack in the Philippines. It is eaten any time of the day. There are a few versions of making this, but typically it is sugar bananas with jackfruit dipped in sugar and wrapped in a spring roll wrapper and fried.
2 bananas (you can use sugar bananas but you will need 4)
1/3 cups brown sugar
3 to 4 piece of jackfruit in syrup (you can use fresh jackfruit)
1/2 cup syrup from jackfruit or water
8 spring roll wrappers.
Slice the bananas in half and then length ways.
Slice the jackfruit into strips about ½cm wide.
Dip the banana one at a time in the syrup and then roll in the brown sugar
Put the coated banana on top of the spring roll wrapper which should be in a diagonal. Put 3 to 4 pieces of the jackfruit on top.
Wrap the bananas like a spring roll and set aside
Fry the Turon in vegetable oil until golden brown. You can also deep fry them if you have a deep fat fryer.
