Apple Cinnamon Turon
Apple Cinnamon Turon is a twist to the classic Turon. Turon is a Filipino snack traditionally made of thin-sliced, sugar-coated banana wrapped in a spring roll wrapper and then deep-fried. Sometimes langka (jackfruit) is added into the mix. When I was a kid, Turon was one of my favourite snacks and I remember buying it always during snack time at school!
In the Philippines, there are always vendors in the streets selling Turon. Most likely these vendors are selling Banana Cue too since they practically have the same ingredients. Banana Cue is made from deep-fried caramelized bananas skewered with bamboo sticks is also a popular snack in the Philippines.
I came up with the Apple Cinnamon Turon idea after I was experimenting with the fillings of the Empanada, a stuffed pastry, and thought I would do the same with the stuffing of Turon. Try out this recipe and let me know what you think!
2 Fuji apples
1/4 cup condensed milk
2 tablespoons cinnamon powder
10 pieces spring roll wrapper
cooking oil for frying
1/2 cup all-purpose cream
100 grams white chocolate, chopped in small pieces
Slice the Fuji apples into small cubes.
Put them in a pan and cook it with condensed milk and cinnamon powder over medium heat.
Continue cooking until the juice from the apples has reduced. Remove pan from the heat and let it cool.
Spread spring roll wrapper on a plate. Place a tablespoon of apple mixture into the edge of the wrapper and carefully roll it over until it forms into a log. Make sure to seal the wrapper properly!
Deep-fry the Turon until it turns golden brown. When done, place Turon on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the oil.
In a separate saucepan, boil the all-purpose cream until it starts to bubble. Once done, pour the cream on the chocolate. Let it sit for a few minutes then stir the mixture until the chocolate is completely melted.
Serve it as a dip of the Turon.
Enjoy Apple Cinnamon Turon!
Tita Kathy tip:
Instead of white chocolate, why not try dark chocolate for your own version of Apple Cinnamon Turon?
