Banana fritters are probably one of the most common street snacks you can find in Thailand, simply because bananas are grown everywhere. My recipe is really simple, but I can’t say it’s healthy. This is definitely a treat for special occasions.
Tools: Wok, Deep Fat Fryer
300g rice flour
400ml tablespoons coconut milk
50g granulated sugar
125g fresh shredded coconut meat (leave out if you can’t find it)
1 teaspoon nigella seeds
6 small bananas, halved
500ml vegetable oil, for deep-frying
Honey or ice cream, to serve
- Put the flour and coconut milk into a bowl and mix well to form a smooth batter. Stir in the sugar, then the coconut and the nigella seeds. Add a little water if the batter is too thick – you want it to be nice and gloopy.
- Peel the bananas and cut them in half lengthways. Now put the oil in a wok over a medium heat. When the oil is hot, coat the
banana in the batter, then gently place a few at a time in the oil. Deep-fry for about 10 minutes until golden brown all over.
- Remove the fritters and drain on kitchen paper. Serve drizzled with honey or with a bowl of ice cream.
