|Crispy Banana Plantain Turon|
One of the Pinoy foods that I used to miss back home is banana turon made of "karnaba" variety.
Jovy, a Pinay-American who just moved-in to Winnemucca from Las Vegas and who eventually became a friend, taught me to use plantain in lieu of "karnaba". Plantain is a kind of banana that is ready to use when the skin turns darker like blackish, something like that :) When I tried it, it tasted like turon in Pinas!
Since then, I did not miss turon anymore :) As long as I have lumpia wrapper in my freezer and a plantain in the grocery store, I can make banana turon anytime I want.
If you are not in Pinas like me, and you are craving banana turon, go ahead make one out of banana plantain! Just make sure you have a lumpia wrapper, okay?
You have a good one!
