A Step-By-Step Turon Recipe With a Delicious Twist

Updated on July 25, 2017

Introduction

I first discovered turon when I was preparing a new dinner for my family and friends. My goal was to use recipes that I had never tried/heard of and recipes that were from different parts of the world. So when I happened to stumble upon a turon recipe online, I was intrigued. The first ingredient that stood out was jackfruit, and I almost chose another dish. I was in high school then, and I didn't know what it was or where to even find it. Fresh jackfruit wasn't something that my local Stop-N-Shop had readily available. Instead, I googled "jackfruit" and found that when ripe it tastes similar to papayas or pineapples. Interestingly enough, if you don't get a ripe fruit, it tastes similar to pulled pork. I wasn't very fond of pineapple or papaya back then, so that's when I decided to substitute the mango for the jackfruit.

While I was learning about turon, I also came across the various ways it is served. Most people serve it with no toppings; however, I wanted to add another dimension of flavor, and I thought that an apricot jam reduction would go perfectly with the fruity dessert. I make this probably once a month, and I have only had positive feedback on this recipe.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 8 min
Ready in: 18 min
Yields: Serves 9 people 4 rolls each

Ingredients

  • 6 Bananas, Preferably Sabas or Plantains
  • 2 Mangos
  • 1 package Spring Roll Wrappers
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Apricot Jam
  • Cooking Oil
  • Confectioners Sugar
  1. Cut the bananas into three sections and then in thirds lengthwise. Slice strips of mangos about 1" in length and ½” thick.
  2. Lay out the cut bananas, mangos and brown sugar in front of where you will prepare the rolls. Then, lay out the spring roll wrappers on a hard, dry surface.
  3. Dip the bananas in the brown sugar and lay one slice in the wrapper. Then place another slice of mango on top of the banana. Depending on how big the wrappers are you can add more than one slice of either fruit.
  4. Once the fruit is in the wrapper, begin rolling the wrapper. When the wrapper is halfway rolled up fold in the two ends and continue rolling. Seal the end with water.
  5. Pour enough cooking oil into a pan so that the rolls can be fully submerged in oil. Then heat the oil until it bubbles (approximately 5 minutes on a medium heat).
  6. Fry the rolls, sealed side down first. Flip over once they start to turn golden brown.
  7. Place on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  8. In a separate pan, heat the apricot jam until it is smooth and bubbly. This usually take 2-3 minutes on a low heat.
  9. Drizzle the apricot glaze on top of the turon and finish with a sprinkle of confectioner’s sugar.

Don't Like An Ingredient?

Variations of this recipe include serving the turon with a chocolate sauce in place of the apricot glaze, using jackfruit instead of mango or including a sweet chili sauce to turn the dish into a more savory one.

You can also serve with some ice cream for an a la mode take on this dish. I've also seen it topped with salted caramel sauce and whipped cream. The beauty of the dish is that you can really tailor it to your particular tastes.

A New Turon Recipe

This Filipino street food is sold in both rural and urban areas. Many of the traditional recipes call for boiling the bananas before you roll them into the wrappers. Most vendors serve this snack in a wrapper like a finger food. It is very popular amongst children and youth. This treat has gained much popularity due to its simplicity and relatively cheap ingredients. However, I prefer this fresher fruit take on turon.

The base of this dish usually has some type of bananas and a crunchy spring roll wrapper. My favorite way to prepare this delicious dish is the most traditional way with my own inventive twist. I happen to prefer mangos as opposed to jackfruit. I also drizzled the apricot jam reduction on top of them instead of leaving them plain for extra flavor.

In my experience, turon does keep well for a couple of days. If you don't want to eat them cold, then heat them up in the oven. Place them on a baking sheet in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 5 minutes. Stay away from microwaving them if you can, it will just make them chewy.
