Thai Style Deep-Fried Bananas


Fancy snacking on some fried bananas? This is Thai style Deep Fried Bananas. The bananas are coated with desiccated coconut and sesame seeds batter. Then, fried until light golden brown in color. The coating gives these fried bananas the crunchy fritters outside, whilst the fruit remains creamy and sweet inside. Here, I am using the natural sweet Burro banana variety. This particular variety of bananas are popular for making fritters and other desserts. If you can’t get hold of them, then do substitute with ripe plantain. I am sure they will taste just as good especially for deep-frying.

  5. These look seriously addicting -- what with their crispy-as-can-be exterior and meltingly creamy interior. And I get my potassium for the day, to boot! ;)

  9. I remember eating this in Bangkok. I like them with sesame seeds. I tried making this the other day using regular Dole Bananas but they were no good. They were so soft and sticky after frying. I have to get some right bananas from the Asian store. Yours were so nicely fried Angie.

  12. How do you manage to coat the bananas with batter and get them into the oil without everything falling apart?
