Plantain is a cooking banana that I've learned how to use here in the US. Over in the Philippines, the cooking banana is called Saba and I liked it very much because it is a lot sweeter than a plantain.
One of the desserts that I miss that my Mom used to make is Turon. It's a banana wrapped in lumpia wrapper and fried. It's delicious especially if you put jack fruit as filling. Well, a friend of mine sent us some Cloud chocolates so I thought of using it as filling for the turon. It turned out really well although my husband said that the chocolate took over the taste of the plantain. Nevertheless, he liked it. So if you want to put a nice a twist to a plain plantain, add some chocolate to it, wrapped and fry it. It's delicious!
