First of all,who doesn’t like banana? I know i do… a lot. Those day when i was a kid, banana was so cheap and at times we got our banana for free from neighbours who own a banana tree. I just love those old days when most of the things were free or just grew wildly.
Normally, in the late afternoon or evening the banana fritter’s vendor will start selling their banana fritters. And i was one of those kids who queue to buy banana fritters and love to eat one.
For me banana fritters should taste crunchy, sweet and little bit of saltiness to balance up the sweetness. So, i tried a few recipes to make a good banana fritters. But, end up i still prefer the “cheat” version, by using Adabi banana fritters flour. It just taste better.
So, in Malaysia this Adabi Banana Fritter flour is easy to access but in other country i’m just not sure. May be you can try with Tempura flour or any other banana fritter flour brand.
But, i just want to give some heads up on the tips of getting the right Banana Fritters. So, check out my video for more tips.
