Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 10 turons
- 5 medium-sized ripe regular bananas, saba bananas or burro banana
- 4 tbsp dark brown sugar
- 10 8-inch frozen spring roll wrapper, thawed and separated
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- Vanilla ice cream , for serving (optional)
Prepare the bananas: If you are using regular bananas, peel and slice the bananas in half crosswise. If you are using saba bananas, peel and slice the bananas in half lengthwise. Set aside.
Spread the brown sugar on a shallow dish.
Lay a wrapper on a plate with 1 corner facing you. Thoroughly cover 1 slice of banana in sugar and then place it along the corner of the wrapper closest to you. Roll the wrapper over the banana, tuck in both sides and roll it up tight. Moisten the end with water and press to seal. Repeat the process with the rest of the bananas.
Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Fry the turon, in batches until golden brown, about 3 minutes per batch. Drain on paper towels.
Serve as is or with vanilla ice cream, if using.
