Fried bananas are well loved and found everywhere here!
But in Tawau, the eateries there love to serve this version with cheese and brown sugar.
You can use any batter recipe that you like, any type of bananas that you like, but you must serve it with brown sugar and grated cheddar.
I used Pisang Abu to make this, and the name translates as Ash Banana. I have no idea the reason behind the naming, but it's one the popular bananas for frying. It CAN'T be eaten raw. Actually I wanted to get pisang awak (You Banana), my favourite type of cooking bananas, but I cannot get it.
So, I made this as a Sunday snack, loved and enjoyed by my family.
Cheesy Fried Bananas
8-10pcs of frying bananas
Brown sugar for sprinkling
Grated cheddar for sprinkling
75gm rice flour
25gm plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
small pinch of salt
1. Prepare batter. Sift both flours, baking powder and baking soda together. Combine the sifted flour with water and salt, go with 125ml first.
2. Heat up your frying oil.
3. Peel bananas, and half them.
4. Dip banana in batter and deep fry. (Taste the banana, if you think you prefer a thinner crust, then add more water)
5. Serve with brown sugar and grated cheddar.
