Types of bananas

ideal to make

Pisang Goreng.

 

There are so many types of bananas it’s difficult to name them as they could be called a different name in other countries.

 

but the ideal bananas to make Pisang Goreng is the short yellow variety(any type) which usually are sweet(some taste a little sour as well).

 

They ripen fast and black spots tend to appear on the skin of the fruit.

These are the ones you will need to make the mashed banana fritters.

 

Cavendish bananas, I would recommend using only if you can’t find the smaller yellow ones.

How to fry the

Pisang Goreng.

 

Pour enough oil into a pan to fry the banana fritters(Pisang Goreng batter) this would be 1 or 1 and 1/2 cup of oil, depending on the size of the frying pan you use.

Let the oil reach low-medium heat, add a small piece of the fritter batter to check on the correct heat.

 

Once the piece of batter fries and floats to the surface of the oil, you’ve reached the correct temperature to fry the banana fritters.

 

It’s important that you maintain this heat by regulating the temperature and not letting the oil reach a smoking point.

 

Once you have the correct oil temperature, drop 2 or 3 teaspoons of the batter into the oil and let it fry over low-medium heat for 3-4 minutes until they turn golden brown. 

Make sure to flip them for an even fry on all sides.

 

When the banana fritter puffs up, use a slotted spoon to drain all excess oil and place them over paper towels.
