Turons

Sharing is caring!

This week Joan’s event A Culinary Tour Around the World is taking us to The Philippines.  I google searched for some vegan Philippo recipes, since I am fasting and I decided to make Turons which are Sweet fried Banana Spring Rolls and are snacks sold in sidewalks.  The original recipe was made with spring roll wrappers but unfortunately as I could not find any,  I decided to make them the Greek way, with phyllo.

I do not know how the original ones taste but these were perfect.   I ate one with some icing sugar and one with honey and walnuts.  My daughter and husband who are not strictly fasting, ate theirs with whipping cream and merenda, which is similar to nutella.

tsp

Dark brown sugar

Tbsp

Sunflower oil, for brushing

1

cup

Sunflower oil, for deep frying

Directions

1.

Cut each phyllo in the middle.

2.

3.

Place a sliced banana on the top side of the phyllo and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar and cinnamon.

In the meantime, heat oil in a skillet and fry the wrapped bananas on both sides, until it’s golden brown.  Remove on paper towels to drain excess oil.

I have been away from blog-hopping quite a bit, been busy. I can see I have missed a lot here. I'm sure they were delicious. In south India, we have another version of a batter fried banana dessert.

Ivy, these sound wonderful and despite having tried Phillipino food, I somehow missed these. The husband and daughter did well adding Merenda!
