Let's start cooking!

Cut bananas with a knife on wooden choping board

Step 1 - Mix batter

  • Dice ripe banana and set aside. With a fork, mash ripe browned bananas and set aside.
  • In a big mixing bowl, add in mashed ripe browned bananas, self raising flour, 2 Tbsp brown sugar, ½ tsp salt and 1 cup of warm water.
  • Mix well until it is a smooth batter.
  • Add in diced bananas and mix well again.
Use 2 metal spoons to scoop banana batter into pot of hot oil

Step 2 - Fry banana balls

  • In a pot on medium-high heat, heat up enough oil to fry banana balls.

    Ensure that you do not fry too many banana balls at a time to allow even cooking and the banana balls from sticking to each other.
  • Dip a spoon in oil to coat it before scooping one tablespoon of batter. Drop batter into the oil and fry until brown. Repeat until batter is used up.

    Coating the spoon prevents batter from sticking.
  • Drain fried banana balls on a paper towel lined plate.

Plate and serve!
