Cekodok Pisang Istimewa
Cekodok Pisang, or Jemput-Jemput Pisang is another popular street-snack in Malaysia. It is a deep-fried snack made with mashed banana and flour. For this recipe, I added some grated coconut cooked in palm sugar in the batter. You can find the coconut recipe here. Alternatively, you can replace it with freshly grated coconut or desiccated coconut and adjust the sweetness with some sugar.

Mash the bananas. Then add the salt, baking soda, flour, grated coconut, and coconut milk. Combine well and set the batter aside for 1/2 an hour.
Heat the oil over moderate heat. Scoop some batter with a spoon and deep-fry the batter until golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Serve warm or at room temperature.
