Vietnamese fried bananas
- 120g rice or plain flour
- Half a teaspoon
- baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 150ml beer
- 150ml coconut milk
- 4 sweet bananas (peeled and cut in half and cut again lengthways)
- Vegetable oil for frying
How to make
Sift the flour with the baking powder in a bowl.
Add the ground ginger and sugar. Beat in a little of the beer and coconut milk to make a smooth paste.
Gradually beat in the rest of the coconut milk and beer to form a thick batter. Leave to stand for 20 mins.
Pour enough vegetable oil for deep frying into a wok or a heavy-based shallow pan.
Dip each piece of banana in batter making sure it is well coated.
Using tongs, place them in the hot oil turning to make sure they are golden brown all over. Drain the bananas on kitchen paper.
