Native Food 1: Banana Lumpia (Banana Turon)

I'm on this phase lately where I want to experiment more with cooking and baking. I've been interested in ethnic cooking lately. I've decided to do a series on my attemps and experiements. So as not to bite off more than I can chew (no pun intended), I'm going to start with something simple.

This recipe is a national favorite in the Philippines. It is the equivalence to Filipino events and fiestas as funnel cake is to American state fairs and festivals.


Ripe plantains

Brown sugar

Egg roll wrapper

Canola Oil

One egg


Step 1: Cut ripe plaintains in rectangle pieces such as the above. Tip: One plaintain
should yield six thin pieces.


Step 2: Mix brown sugar and banana.


Step 3: Wrap the banana. Beat the eggs in a bowl and use eggs to seal when wrapping. This is the most difficult step and for those that are not experienced with egg roll wrapping, click here to watch a tutorial.


Step 4: Fry until light golden brown on medium to medium high heat.

Step 5: Share with family and friends! Don't keep all that fried stuff to yourself!
