What do you do when you have abundance of bananas sitting on your kitchen counter? Make Banana Fritter Balls! Okay, actually there are many other stuff you could make with bananas but this is one of my all-time childhood favorites. Did I mention it is super-duper easy to make too? Uh huh, with just a few ingredients readily available in your pantry.
I remember helping mom mashed up all those overly ripen bananas with a fork while she proceeded to mix in the rest of the “white powder” and “stuff”. No measurement required at all – she just eyeballed it all the way and they turned out really good!
So today, I’m taking one of mom’s recipe and tweaking it (just a little) and share it with all of you! Let me know if you have a similar or another Banana Fritter Balls recipe and I would love for you to share with me.
3 large ripe bananas (preferably with black dots on the skin)
1 ½ cup (200 g) rice flour
½ cup (70 g) plain flour
1 ½ tbsp baking powder
1 cup (225 g) granulated sugar
¼ cup (60ml) water
Makes about 25 fritter balls
In a large bowl, mash the bananas and all the dry ingredients together. You could either use a fork or your hands.
Add in water and mix until it forms a paste.
Heat up some oil (about 2-inch level) to 180°C/350°F.
Use a spoon and drop in a spoonful of the banana paste, one at a time. It should roughly form a ball shape.
Deep fry for 3 mins, until golden brown. Stir occasionally to keep them from sticking.
Drain on paper towel and serve warm.
