Indonesia - Pisang Goreng (Banana Fritters on a Stick) Recipe

Indonesia - Pisang Goreng (Banana Fritters on a Stick) Recipes

Ingredients :

5 oz / 155g all purpose (plain) flour, or as needed

2 oz / 60g rice flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

8 fl oz / 250ml water, or as needed

vegetable oil for deep-frying

8 small, firm bananas, peeled

Method :

In a bowl, sift together the 5 oz / 155g all-purpose flour, rice flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the 8 fl oz / 250ml water to make a smooth, thick pancake like batter. Adjust the consistency by adding more all-purpose flour or water.

Pour the oil to a depth of 2 inches (5cm) in a wok or deep frying pan and heat to 350F (180C) on a deep-frying thermometer. Spear one end of a banana with a bamboo skewer, running the skewer all the way through to the other end, then dip it into the batter, coating evenly. Carefully lower the battered banana into the hot oil, leaving the skewer in. Repeat with as many more bananas as will fit in the pan without crowing. Deep-fry the bananas until they are crisp and golden, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted utensil, transfer to paper towels to drain.

Serve the bananas hot, still on their skewers. Dust with confectioners' sugar or cinnamon. Each diner squeezes lime juice over his or her serving.

Most visitors to Southeast Asia think of banana fritters as dessert. In Indonesia, however, they are also enjoyed for breakfast or as a snack. The fritters are best when made with the small thin-skinned bananas found in Southeast Asia. Thais prefer a small, firm banana called gluay nam wah, which tends to be particularly sweet, is the perfect size, and stays fairly firm when cooked. Indonesians are partial to the larger sweet king banana, or raja.
