Banana Fritters Recipe (Pisang Goreng)

I absolutely LOVE these banana fritters.. they bring back childhood memories! So crispy on the outside and as soon as you bite into it, it melts into a soft, gooey and sweet banana filling. Shall I call this one of my guilty indulgences? Now I'm going to pass it on so you can indulge in it too! 


1/2 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup corn flour
1 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
1 tsp sugar
180ml water (or until the batter reaches the right consistency)
1 tbsp oil for the batter mix
4 ripe / browning bananas
Enough oil for deep frying


In a bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add water slowly and mix to form a batter. Add the tablespoon of oil for smoothness.

Slice the bananas diagonally so it forms longish approx. 1.5cm thick strips.

Heat oil until it gets very hot. Dip and coat each banana strip with the batter. Deep fry until it turns brown.

Serve with chilli sauce as a savoury dish.. or serve with vanilla ice cream as dessert.

    a twist on this would be to caramelize sugar in a wok until runny. add the bananas to the mixture and toss through. once thoroughly coated, remove and add to a bowl of ice and water to harden the sugar mix. remove and enjoy. hmmm yum!

    thanks for the recipe, kim!
