How To Make Turon

Caramelised Banana Rolls

Turon is simple yet a satisfying snack. Filipino parties and gatherings serve Turon as a dessert, it does’t last long on the buffet table. Some people make them with jackfruit and some leave it out. I prefer it with jackfruit as it gives a depth in flavour and a very unique taste. I also like to caramelised the sugar as a coating as it reminds me of “banana Q”. It’s a deep fried banana covered in caramelised sugar, so for this it’s a mix! I get a 2 in 1 hit of street food memories from the Philippines.

Here’s a quick 5 steps on how to make Turon….honest it’s simple!
