Turon, Fried Banana Roll

Turon, Fried Banana Roll
Turon or Fried Banana Rolls are truly a Filipino snack. It is a street food sold along side with banana-Q. See my previous post of banana-Q. It is prepared by rolling sliced banana sprinkled with brown sugar and toped with langka or makapuno sweets in a lumpia wrapper. Quantities for this recipe is for your guide only, you can make as many turones as you wish there is no limit to the amount of ingredients. It is best eaten as soon as they are cooled enough to eat while the skins are still crisp. Enjoy.
