Ripe bananas dipped in a simple batter and deep-fried to golden perfection!

Adapted from Rasa Malaysia's Kuih Kodok Recipe.


3 ripe bananas
1 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon cinnamon (my addition)
"Some water". I'd guess 1/3 - 1/2 of a cup is more than enough.
Oil for frying
Cinnamon Sugar (optional topping)
Chocolate sauce (optional topping)


1) Add dry ingredients to a large bowl. Mix in the egg and “some water”. I’d start with 1/3 of a cup. You want a thick batter.

2) Chop up your banana and throw the chunks into the batter.

3) Heat a fry station to 350 degrees. You’ll need at least a quart of oil.

4) Scoop out a tablespoon-sized fritter and carefully drop it in the oil. Cook for 4-5 minutes until golden brown. I recommend doing a test batch before cooking a bunch of them. As they fry, use some tongs or a slotted spoon to make sure they are cooking evenly.

5) When they come out of the fryer, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and serve immediately!
