Banana Fritter

Banana Fritters or “Turon” as they are called in Tagalog, are a wonderful fried desert. The ones we are making here are sort of the mini versions since we only had the smaller spring roll wrappers but it is essentially the same thing.

  • Burro Banana’s (Should be completely yellow and starting to brown before using)
  • Spring Roll Wrappers
  • Brown Sugar

This one is a simple recipe. All you need to do is cut the banana into a small enough piece that you can wrap it effectively. The only other thing to worry about is to sprinkle the banana with sugar before you wrap it up. The final piece of the wrapper can be brushed or just dab your finger in some water and touch the end. Fold in the sides first and then roll from the bottom to the top.

We cooked ours in a deep fryer for 4-5 minutes at 350° until golden in color, but could substitute a pan with oil just as well. Either way pull them out and set them on a paper towel for a minute to let the excess oil come off. Then get them off of there or the sugars will stick to the paper towel. They crisp up nicely and should have a shine much brighter than that of regular fried foods. The sugar seeps through the wrapping and hardens on the outside during the cooking process.
