Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
4 tablespoons of Sugar(reduce if necessary)
1 and 1/2 cup of self-raising flour
3 cups of oil( depending on the size of the pan you are using you can reduce the amount of oil, the idea is to have enough oil to submerge the dough balls so they fry evenly)
Sift the plain flour, Salt and the self-raising flour together, set aside.
Peel Bananas, place them in a deep bowl, using a fork, mash them into a pulp. make sure the Bananas are soft and ripe.
Add Sugar into the Banana pulp and mix.
Once both ingredients are both mixed well, add the sifted flour.
Since you want to keep the dough airy, incorporate the flour into the Banana but try as much to minimize the mixing by avoiding beating or whipping the mixture too vigorously, instead use slow movements to merge all the ingredients together.
leave the wet dough to rest for 5 minutes.
Making the Banana fritters.
Place a deep pan over low-fire and pour in the oil.
Let the oil heat by gradually increasing the temperature to medium heat, heat oil for 1-2 minutes.
To check if the temperature is right, drop a piece of dough to see if it fries while turning golden or use the wooden spoon method mentioned above. it’s important to keep the oil at a steady temperature avoiding it to smoke.
Once the oil is ready, low-medium heat, drop 1-2 drop spoonfuls of dough, since the mixture is a wet dough, you will not get a perfect ball but an oval-shaped Banana batter balls.
To get the latter shape, you need to gently turn the dough repeatedly with your spoon making sure all sides of the dough fries evenly.
Once the Banana fritter balls turn pale gold, place them on paper towels to absorb any residue oil.
