Turon with Cinnamon
I had friends over at my house last week and I thought of serving them some filipino delicacy. I saw some ripe Saba bananas in my fruit basket and turon first came to mind. I remembered I had a package of lumpia wrappers in my freezer so I quickly thawed it out.
My friends were watching me in the kitchen while I was preparing the turon. I sliced the banana into three equal parts, lengthwise. I rolled one slice over a pre-mixed brown sugar and cinnamon powder, I added a strip of ripe jackfruit (from the jar I bought in oriental store). I rolled it up and sealed the ends of the turon with water.
I didn't use much oil because I only cooked a small batch, reason why it had spots on them, probably from melted sugar at the bottom of the pan.
You know what, my American and Japanese friends loved it. My husband thought it resembled the taste of an apple pie. It disappeared quickly from the table.
