A wonderful Mandazi (south african fritter) by Alan Coxon

Top Review by Mandy

I really liked these, I thought the mixture might be too runny but they cooked up lovely. I shallow fried so mine were more like pancakes than fritters but still nice. Toddler DD enjoyed these too, didn't serve with the basil but with a bit of maple syrup for a tasty brekky!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the egg, bananas, milk, vanilla extract, flour, baking powder and sugar in a blender or food processor. Whiz to make a smooth batter with a creamy, pourable consistency (if it is too thick add a little extra milk). Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy saucepan or deep fat fryer and carefully fry spoonfuls of the mixture for 3-4 minutes until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towel.
  3. Serve with grilled pineapple, chilli syrup and deep fried basil leaves.
