Filipino Recipes – Banana Turon – Pinoy Food

Banana can be cooked in a lot of ways but banana turon is certainly the best for me. It is, in fact, one of the top 5 snacks that I love the most. Pinoy Flix I still remember way back in grade school and high school when I would race down to the canteen after I hear the recess bell ring just to be able to get a banana turon because they sell really fast. Meaning, it is not just my favorite alone, but others also find it really delicious and satisfying. And apart from being delicious, they really come in cheap that most students can afford buying one or two turons during snacktime. And now that I am already a mom, I prepare turon for my son who loves it as much as I do.


  • 12 pieces bananas (saba)
  • light brown sugar
  • native lumpia wrapper
  • slivers of langka or jackfruit (optional)
  • flour and water (used to seal the edges)
  • oil (for frying)

Cooking Procedure:

  • Remove the banana peel.
  • Prepare half a portion of the wrapper to fit the peeled bananas.
  • Roll the peeled bananas in light brown sugar.
  • A sliver of langka can be added on top of the saba but this is only optional.
  • Place the sugar coated banana on the lumpia wrapper and roll until the banana is completed wrapped. If necessary, you can also double the wrap.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Fry the wrapped bananas gently until your have a golden brown, crispy and caramelized turon.
  • Remove the excess oil by placing the cooked turon in a strainer.
  • Best served while hot.
