Turon

Nagluto ako ng turon for breakfast today. or brunch. depends on how you see it.
May lakad kami nang hapon, at syempre kailangang tumawag ang landlord namin an hour and a half before, to inform us that he's sending someone to get our exisiting dining set and sofa #2. Yeh, matagal na namin kasing hinihingi na kung di naman nya mapapalitan yung dining set ng mas maayos, tanggalin nalang nya yung dining set nya, nang di namin sya sisihin pag may isa sa aming bumula ang bibig sa tetano. Pinakuha narin namin yung sofa set nung may-ari, kasi meron naman kaming isa pa, yung puti (yellowed. hehe) na sofa na minana ko pa sa aking pagkadalaga (naaks, as if matagal na yun eh noh). Umalis kami ni Jay ng bahay chuckling on our way out, 'Baka pag pumasok sina Chet memya, mag panic yon-- 'Nalooban tayo!''. Haha.

Hemingweys--mabalik tayo sa turon. Big deal ito sa amin kasi dito, hindi nabibili ang turon sa kalye, at kung kelan mo lang mapag tripan. Isang buwan ko naring pinag iisipang mabuti itong turon project na ito, at minsan ay minumuni-muni ko pa kung paano ito gagawin. Kaya mega feeling accomplished ako kanina habang isinasabay kong kainin ito with mah coffee. Eto ang kung paano ko ito ginawa:

Turon (banana fritters, Filipino style) for the grocery goer:
Note: nilagay kong grocery goer, kasi hindi lahat tayo ay biniyayaan ng palengke na malapit lang sa atin.

-10 pieces banana, either 'saba' or 'lakatan' (NOTE: since I dont frequent wet markets, where I could buy the saba variety, I used Lakatan instead), peeled and halved (vertically and horizontally)
-1 cup jackfruit (nangka), ready to serve and shredded vertically (into strips) (NOTE: you can buy those canned jackfruits nalang. nakakaloka naman kung di mo mood pagpaka-piyesta, and you end up with jackfruit to last you for 2 months)
-1/2 cup brown sugar, leveled on a flat serving plate
-lumpia wrapper (spring roll wrapper, with or without egg)

1. Look for a frying pan deep enough for semi-deep frying. Start heating pan with oil enough to cover half the bananas.
2. see if your bananas are moist. if not, get them a bit wet by sprinkling water on each.
3. sugar- roll each moist banana to preferred coating (thin coat lang sana, diba)
4. place the rolled banana in the middle of the lumpia wrapper
5. accompany it with few strands of jackfruit.
6. finish up rolling the wrapper, with both ends tapered just nice--not closed, just together in the middle for both ends.
7. once the frying pan is hot enough, dip the fritters and cook for 5 minutes on both sides.
8. use a steel colander to stack the fried fritters vertically (and to hopefully--get rid of the excess oil).
9. let them cool for some time. Mainit yan, pramis.


enjoy! serves 4 hungry people. several times. :)
