Selemat Makan! Smaaklije Eten! Bon Appetit! We found this recipe in one of our favorite cookbooks, which was given to us by our friends Barbara and Bill. Since I'm on a low sodium diet I adjusted this recipe accordingly

The source for this recipe is "Asia the Beautiful Cookbook" published by Stonehenge Press


  • 12 ripe bananas (not over ripe)
  • 1/2 cup (60g)rice flour*
  • 1 cup 125g) all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • oil for frying


  • Peel the bananas, cover and set aside.
  • Beat together the remaining ingredients, except the oil.
  • Let stand for about 25 minutes.
  • Heat the oil to the smoking point, then reduce heat slightly.
  • Dip the bananas one by one into the batter, then slide into the oil. (Do not fry more than three at a time or the temperature of the oil will drop too much, making the batter heavy and oily. Cook until golden, turning once or twice.
  • Lift out with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • Serve while hot with coconut ice cream.
