"TURON" made of BANANA

Looked what kind of banana I cooked- Cavendish banana! Half ripe Cavendish bananas cut into half sizes then slice into two pieces of each halves, sprinkled with brown or white refined sugar and wrapped it with egg roll wrapper then fry in small amount of regular cooking oil. It is called "turon" in my country that my three young teenagers love to eat.I missed them both because that turon I cooked is not same taste I imagined when I was home.

Our Banana in the Philippines has different varieties that we can cook in different menu's too.But here abroad has only one kind and they called it same name as anywhere we heard or "Cavendish Banana" that I saw and bought in the market.Unlike in my country Philippines we have "saba\" , "la tondan", "matabya", "pakil", "bungoran", "uri-od", etc.These bananas are another source of income and foods instead of rice as the main meals. We can cooked "saba" as like vegetables, turon like image above I cooked few minutes ago, banana crackers, etc. While the rest of varieties can be eat as raw foods.I missed them all, wahhhhh.....tears,cry, sigh..I feel homesick again. That is why I cooked what my kids really want during afternoon snacks.But now I'm alone here I eat 'em all to have one reason why I'm gaining weight.
