You can find Thai banana at any South Asian market. If you cannot find them use any banana with a firm texture to make these fitters. Ripe plantains can also be used. It is a sweet dessert and can be served on its own,but to make it extra special serve it with some vanilla ice cream. Give this recipe a try, you will surely love it.
Thai Bananas- 7-8
Rice flour- 2 cup
Baking soda- 1/8 tsp
Coconut milk- 1 cup
water - 1 1/2 cup
(adjust according to consistency you need)
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Fresh grated coconut- 3/4 cup
Sesame seeds- 1 tbs
Oil for frying
Peel the plantain and then slit it lengthwise. I cut into three pieces lengthwise.
In a large mixing bowl combine rice flour,sugar, a pinch of salt,baking powder ,fresh grated coconut and sesame seeds. Add water and coconut milk and mix into a smooth batter with no lumps. The batter will be thin to begin with but will thicken as it sits.So adjust consistency by adding more water if needed. Let it sit for 10 minutes on the counter.
Put banana slices into the batter. Pick up one slice at a time, make sure it is completely coated with the batter and gently slide into the hot oil.Fry in batches.Flip and fry till both sides are evenly brown.
Drain excess oil using paper towel.Serve on its own or drizzle with honey or with ice cream.
Hope you will all enjoy!
