This is one of my favorite recipes. I have it every time I go to a Thai restaurant topped with coconut ice cream or drizzled with honey. If you have never tried it, now is the time, it's so good! I use Nam, a variety of banana which can be found at most Asian Markets. You can also use sweet potatoes in this recipe.
- In a medium bowl, mix rice flour, tapioca, sugar, salt and coconut. Stir in water, a little at a time, and mix to form a thick batter.
- Peel the bananas and cut each lengthwise into 3 or 4 pieces. Heat oil in deep-fryer or deep wok to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Completely coat each banana slice in batter, then fry in hot oil until golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve at once.
- Serve with Coconut Ice Cream (vanilla ice cream with honey will do if coconut ice cream is not available).
