Kulinarya Cooking Club - Turon

Today marks the first post for the Kulinarya Cooking Club..

Kulinarya was started by a group of Filipino foodies living in Sydney, who are passionate about the Filipino culture and its colourful cuisine. Each month we will showcase a new dish along with their family recipes. By sharing these recipes, we hope you find the same passion and love for Filipino Food as we do.

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.

Below is my version:


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.

Yahooo! Congratulations Kath on a job well done! I couldn't find langka and I wish I did - that is probably the best combination there is! Thanks for organizing everything for the KCC! Really pleased it turned out well.

You made the classic recipe for turon! There's something about the combination of bananas & jackfruit that is so good plus wrapped in crispy lumpia wrappers, so yummy!

That looks very delicious. I can imagine all the sweetness and flavours bursting forth when you bite into it. Beautiful combination of jackfruit and bananas. I miss the jackfruit. Thanks for sharing.

My step-mom is filo, I had a conversation with my work mate who is also filo we had a discussion how filo food can sometimes be unappealing. Regardless of that I love filo food. It has interesting flavours and textures.

Other night made leche flan MmMMmMm <3 <3 cant wait to see more of your filo foods. I think its great your showing foods from filo culture as not many ppl know what filo food is.
