Fried Bananas (Pisang Goreng)
3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 to 1 c. water
1 lime, zested and cut into wedges
4 small, ripe bananas
1 c. canola oil for frying
1 tbsp. sugar
How to prepare :
In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt.
Add enough water to make a smooth batter that is somewhat thick. Add lime zest and mix well.
Peel bananas and dip them in the batter 2 or 3 times, until well coated.
In a deep skillet, heat oil to 375°F, or until a piece of bread browns in 30 seconds.
Place bananas in the oil slowly and carefully. Fry two at a time, until they are crisp and golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to absorb the oil.
To serve, arrange bananas on a plate and sprinkle with sugar.
