Turon (banana egg rolls)

8 servings
15 min
10 min


Number of serving: 8
3-4 Really ripe Saba Banana (or Plantains)

1 Jar of Jack Fruit

1 Package of egg roll wrapper (The Filipino one is better for this than the Chinese version)

2-3 Cups of Brown Sugar


  • Separate the egg roll wrappers since they are probably in one large stack (this was my normal job when The Mother was making this)
    Slice the bananas into 1/2 inch thick slices. I could probably get 6-8 pieces out of a banana depending on the length.
    Dip one of the slices into the brown sugar and make sure it is fully coated.
    Place it on the bottom 1/3 of the egg roll wrapper and place a piece of jack fruit on top.
    Fold over the bottom and sides to make a rectangle and start rolling. Use a little water to dampen the end of the wrapper to get it to stick to the roll.
    Deep fry and drain the oil
    *Option if you would like, add some brown sugar and butter in a skillet and drip the turon into to make a nice sugar coating :D
