Int he Philippines, Turon isn't really considered a dessert, but rather a merienda or afternoon snack. The jackfruit or langka, gives it a distinct taste and aroma, but is optional if you can't find it. This is great served with Caramel Coconut Sauce (see separate recipe)"

Step 1

Separate the spring roll wrappers, arrange your plates in sequence : sliced banana, sugar, jackfruit.

Step 2

Lay the wrapper, dip the banana in sugar and put on one end of the wrapper (horizontal to you), lay a slice of jackfruit on top.

Step 3

Fold starting at the end of the wrapper with the filling, fold the 2 sides (left & right) in, then roll up to the end. It will look like a little burrito! Seal the end with water.

Step 4

Heat the oil over medium heat and fry the turon with the sealed end side down first (to keep it sealed). Cook until slightly browned and flip.

Step 5

Fry the other side, and once slightly browned, sprinkle sugar(1 tablespoon per roll) onto the oil to caramelize and glaze the fried roll. Cook until golden brown.
