Bananas are one of the most popular fruits on earth, for good reason! They are packed with nutrients that benefit your digestion and weight loss while also tasting amazing!
In this episode of Sam Tan’s Kitchen, Sam demonstrates how to make aMalaysian mashed banana fritter. While there are many variations of this snack, Sam prefers making one that is a little flatter, bite sized and crisp on the outside while moist on the inside. Not only is this a great snack but it’s also a great use of all your overripe bananas!
This dish is perfect for your cheat meals, one serving will satisfy your sweet tooth.
First, you need to heat up your oil for deep frying. Place about an inch of vegetable oil in the pot, try avoiding olive oil as it has a low burning point.
While your oil heats you can start mashing the bananas in a bowl with a fork. Once bananas are mashed add a tablespoon of flour, a teaspoon of rice flour, a teaspoon of sugar, a dash of salt, and a quarter teaspoon of baking powder. Mix all ingredients together.
Now that your mixture is prepped you can place the ingredients in the oil. With a slotted spoon or a fork take two teaspoons of the dough and carefully drop into oil. Turn the fritters over so they brown evenly.
Once fritters are cooked place on a paper towel to soak up the oil.
Let cool, serve and enjoy!
