Banana slices are coated in a tasty batter, and deep-fried in this popular Indonesian snack.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/4 tablespoon vanilla powder
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon rum flavoring
- 4 ripe bananas, sliced
- 2 cups oil for frying
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and vanilla powder. Make a well in the center, and pour in milk, egg, melted butter and rum flavoring. Mix until smooth. Fold in banana slices until evenly coated.
Heat oil in a wok or deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Drop banana mixture by tablespoon into hot oil. Fry until golden brown and crispy, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove bananas from oil, and drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
