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.

  1. I'm intrigued Angie!I am so going to make this, thank you for sharing! And where did you learn this from?

  2. Hi Quinn, its easy..learned while waiting for the fried bananas from the seller in Thailand and of course by eating :)

  3. These fried bananas are always my favourite. When I was back home I just go and buy it. I can eat this any time of the day.....just so delicious. I have to make this soon.

  4. Oh my goodness I love bananas that are cooked any which way. I recently wrapped bananas and nutella in phyllo and baked it. Nothing better!

  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! ;)

  6. Fabulous!!! OMG that looks good! You always have such beautiful photos - Good enough to eat :) ~LeslieMichele

  7. Oh man, I am drooling. This looks fantastic! Makes me long for "pisang goreng"...

  8. yums... almost as good as Goreng pisang!!!

  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.

  10. My mom used to make these for me all the time, yours have fantastic coloring! Thanks for posting, can't wait to try out the recipe!

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

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
