Thai Banana Fritters

I made some snack food for tea time- Thai banana fritters. There is a Malaysian version called 'goreng pisang' as well. It can be eaten as a snack, or you can serve it as a dessert with ice-cream on the side. You can always find a street-side stall in Asia selling banana fritters, fresh off a hot wok.

5 bananas (sliced lengthwise)
3/4 cup rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 tsp salt
2 tbs sugar
1 cup water

1. Mix flour, sesame seeds, salt, sugar and water together. Make sure the batter is lump free.
2. Dip bananas into the batter before deep frying.
3. Serve while its hot.

It's Indonesian. The name is pisang goreng. Pisang = banana, goreng = fried. It's very traditional dishes and widely eaten throughout the country. Whatever Malaysian can be traced back to my country :P

I wouldnt agree that pisang goreng is exclusively an Indonesian dish. Its popular in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. Each country has a different recipe for these banana fritters. The recipe I have given is the Thai version.
