Mashed Banana Fritters



Ingredients: (Mashed Banana Fritters)

2 big ripe bananas, mashed (about 180g)
3 -4 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon rice flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
1 1/2 tablespoons oil (for frying) or 1 1/2 tablespoons butter (for frying)

Directions: (Mashed Banana Fritters)

  1. Mix the flours, baking powder, soda, salt and sugar in a bowl.
    Stir it into the mashed banana with a fork. (Add the fourth tbs of flour if mixture is too soft.).
    Heat a frying pan to medium-hot and add enough oil to coat the flat area. (Traditionally, this snack is deep-fried but I find it not all that necessary.).
    Scoop a tablespoon of the banana mixture onto the pan when the oil is heated to medium hot (a soft sizzling sound when the batter touches it). Flatten the batter slightly.
    Fry one side till medium brown and flip over to fry the other side.
    Place cooked fritters on a few layers of kitchen paper. Best served warm but cooled is good, too.
