Ingredients

Spring roll wrappers 100 Gram
Ripe bananas 2 Medium
Brown sugar 4 Tablespoon
Eggs 2 Medium , beaten
Oil 1 Cup (16 tbs) (For deep frying)

Directions

GETTING READY

1. Take a ripe banana, skin it, cut it into half and then cut lengthwise. Keep this aside.

2. Take two small bowls, in one set a beaten egg aside and in the other keep some brown sugar ready for use.

MAKING

3. Lay down the wrapper in a diamond shape. Put one cut piece of banana across the center just below the halfway point. Spoon some of the sugar on to the banana and start rolling the wrapper from the bottom corner. As you roll up fold over the side corners and continue rolling until you reach the top. Seal the end with the beaten egg.

4. In a frying pan heat oil to 375 F, and deep fry the prepared rolls.

SERVING

5. Serve the rolls with a scoop of ice cream.

NOTE

Different variations of this recipe can be made. One of them can be done using peanut butter spread in the wrapper and keeping some cut banana pieces with brown sugar. The brown sugar can be replaced with chocolate mars bars too.

Traditionally Turon is made with saba bananas and jack fruit though other fillings like mangoes and sweet potatoes can be used as well.
