Banana Fritters

Banana Fritters created by kellychris

This traditional recipe is from Indonesia, but is probably familiar to many countries that grow this tropical fruit. I have no idea how many it serves.

    I also had trouble with these fritters. The batter is too runny to make balls so I just dropped spoonfuls into the oil. They took a very long time to brown & then they were greasy. I ended up throwing out the cooked ones & using the batter for something else. Made for ZWT6 - No-Nonsense Nibblers

    delicious. I ended up shallow frying these as i do potato pancakes or corn fritters after reading the review. Subbed splenda for the sugar.

    These were okay- didn't really go over too well at my house. Plus, I really had trouble making these. The batter was too moist to shape- even though I added more flour, but then had to add more coconut creme for flavor- and didn't fry well,either. And, I should have read NorthwestGal's review to the end about the draining. Mine were flat lil' balls with paper stuck to the bottom. SRY- made for Xtra Hot Dishes of ZWT6.

    These were crunchy balls of banana. My DH is a big banana fritter fan and gave these 5 stars. He drizzled maple syrup over them. Made for ZWT 6 The Indonesian/Malaysian name for these little dumplings is jemput jemput.
