banana lumpia, banana spring rolls, known as turon (tooróhn). you'll find dozens of variations, with all sorts of interesting additives from the traditional strips of langka(láhngkah)--jackfruit--to the radical chef's eclectic addition of cheese.
this is the most basic recipe, as the bananas were exceptional--perfectly ripe, creamy, substantial and sweet. no need for additional sugar or flavouring. you'll need lumpia or spring roll wrappers, saba bananas, a little water, cooking oil. cut the bananas lengthwise in half, place cut-side down somewhere towards the bottom of one wrapper horizontally, fold the vertical ends of the wrapper over the banana half, then the bottom end over it as if it was encased in an open envelope. roll the banana half away from you until completely wrapped, seal the exposed edge with water. heat a generous amount of oil up, deep fry turon until golden.
