Tok Mak's Fried Bananas

My grandmother used to make the batter for Fried Bananas using
very basic, simple ingerdients.....the main being rice flour, which resulted in a lovely crunchy batter while it is hot. Being a traditionalist at heart and a passion in upholding simplistic recipes using unprocessed ingredients as they did during my grandmother's generation, I share with you my Tok Mak's recipe........

1 bunch pisang nipah
1 cup rice flour
1 pinch slaked lime/kapur
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup water
3 cups of oil for deep frying

1. Peel the bananas and slice it in half, lengthways.
2. In a large bowl, beat together the rice flour, kapur, salt & water all together till well combined.
3. Heat about 3 cups of oil in a pan for deep frying.
4. When the oil is hot, dip the bananas quickly into the batter and directly into the oil.
5. Do not fry too many bananas at the same time.
6. Keep turning the bananas to evenly brown it.
7. After approximately 3 minutes or until golden brown, remove from heat and drain on a paper towel.
8. Fantastic eaten immediately!
