Crispy Fried Bananas Recipe

This recipe is so easy to make and it is also fun. Fried bananas, which are known as “pisang goreng” to anyone in Singapore, Indonesia or Malaysia, are the most popular dessert of all in those areas. There are hawkers selling these delicious hot treats on every busy street corner. The batter is light and crispy and the custard powder makes the batter an appealing yellow, as well as giving it a great smell. If you do not have rice flour you could just use all purpose flour but the banana balls will be slightly less crispy.

Deep frying is a great way to cook recipes like fried bananas because the bananas only need to be warmed up, not cooked. The hot oil seals the batter immediately and turns it golden brown and crunchy within a few minutes. If you want to make some tasty seafood appetizers at the same time, you can chop imitation crab sticks into three pieces and dip some of these in the batter. These are really good cooked in the exact same way and they will be nice with sweet and sour sauce or satay sauce.

Use any kind of bananas you like, as long as they are ripe without being too soft or mushy. Serve easy fried bananas with a fruity dip or even with satay sauce if you are serving them with other savory party appetizers. A homemade mango dip recipe is especially good with these fried bananas. Fried bananas are great for any occasion. You can serve them alongside an Asian dinner or curry or you can serve them for dessert with ice cream, syrup or honey and chopped nuts. What about serving these delicious fried bananas as one of your Superbowl appetizers? They are great finger food and everyone loves these hot, tasty snacks.
