How to make Sweet Plantain Turon

Fried Sweet Plantain Turon Sweet Plantain Turon are Fried Plantain Spring Roll snacks.  I was the lucky recipient of one of these delicious Filipino snacks just a couple of years ago and fell in love immediately!

A lady at my grandmother’s church makes these every Sunday and sells them at a table at the church.  Whenever we see her, we make sure to pick up a bag or two.  They are so delicious that I wondered if I could make them too.  Sure enough, I discovered they are really simple to make and turned out just as good as the original.


The main thing to consider is the plantains must be really ripe.  They start to look so ripe that you might want to throw them out but don’t!  That is when they are perfectly sweet.

You can use spring roll wrappers or egg roll wrappers.  Traditionally, you use the non-translucent spring roll wrappers.  Try this recipe, I am sure you and your family will love them!

Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a non-stick pan for frying over medium heat.
  2. In a small bowl, mix water and starch and set aside.
  3. Cut the plantains and roll into the brown sugar to give a sweet coating.
  4. On a flat surface, place a wrapper flat on an angle then top with plantains. Top with a small amount of Jackfruit (optional). Seal the sides and roll the wrapper. Seal the top with the water/starch liquid.
  5. Carefully place each rolled Turon into the hot oil. Fry them on each side for a few minutes until golden brown. Do not overcook. They will burn.
  6. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel covered plate. Serve warm.
