Banana fritters are one of my all-time favorites! Ideally, I prefer making them for breakfast, as even though they are deep fried, they are still quite healthy. I would suggest using moderately ripe bananas in the process, as overripe bananas can create a mess. This light, crispy breakfast meal is a treat for those with a sweet tooth. If you would like your banana fritters to be a lovely golden brown color when fried, simply add ½ teaspoon turmeric powder to the batter mixture, before dipping the sliced bananas in them. With this recipe however, it isn't necessary to add turmeric powder. Here we go!
- 2 sliced ripe bananas
- Plain flour: ½ cup
- Rice flour: 1 tbsp
- Sugar: 1-2 tbsp, depending on the ripeness of banana
- Salt to taste
- Water: ¾ cup to 1 cup
STEP 1: Peel and slice the ripe bananas. Slice them into big pieces or small ones, as per your preference.
STEP 2: Create the batter by combining your flour, rice flour, sugar, salt and water.
STEP 3: The batter should be thick enough to coat the back of your spoon.
STEP 4: Now dip the sliced bananas into the batter.
STEP 5: Heat oil in a pan. Make sure the oil is be really hot, but not smoking.
STEP 6: Deep fry the bananas until golden brown.
STEP 7: Drain off the excess oil, using serving napkins
STEP 8: Serve piping hot.
You can jazz up this indulgent morning dish even more by drizzling a bit of honey or maple syrup over the top. You're likely to have leftover batter, meaning this glorious banana goodness can stretch on for a few mornings at a time!
