Serves: 6-8 people
  • 10 pcs saba banana, sliced in half lengthwise
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup jackfruit, sliced (optional)
  • ½ cup fresh strawberries, slices (optional)
  • 20 pcs lumpia wrapper (spring rolls wrapper)
  • as needed cooking oil, for frying
  1. In a clean space or a large plate, place one lumpia wrapper. Take a slice of banana and roll in brown sugar. Place it about ⅓ of the way up the lumpia wrapper.
  2. Add some sliced jackfruit or strawberries parallel to the piece of banana.
  3. Fold the lumpia wrapper over the fruit, and pull it back toward you, tightening and compacting the fruit inside. Fold the ends in and roll the rest of the turon, as you would an ordinary spring roll. Using your finger, dab a little water as required to to help seal the turon.
  4. Once you’ve rolled all the turon. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons ofbrown sugar over the top of them.
  5. In a shallow fry pan, add about half an inch of cooking oil and pre-heat to 350 F/ 180 C
  6. Shallow fry the turon for 5-7 minutes over medium heat, turning as required until all sides are golden brown. Remove from the pan and place on paper towel, or a wire rack to drain excess oil
  7. Serve on a plate with vanilla ice cream and ube jam on top.
