Vietnamese Fried Bananas (Chuối Chiên)


Units Scale

For the batter:

1 cup (150g) rice flour

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

a pinch of salt

1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder (optional)

1 cup (240 ml) water

For the fried Banana Cake

8 bananas, sliced vertically, and flattened in a plastic bag.

1 sweet potato sliced large and thin, soaked in salt

1 piece coconut, thinly sliced

cooking oil, for frying


For the batter

  1. Mix flour, sugar, water, and turmeric powder in a bowl and stir well. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes

For the fried banana cake

  1. Heat the oil until the wand is bubbly. Lower the heat to medium and start frying.
  2. Dip the sweet potato, banana, and coconut in the batter. About to line up the shovel and gently push it into the frying pan.
  3. Fry until the sweet potato and bonano fritters are golden brown on both sides.
  4. Take it out and drain the oil.
  5. Dip the bananas in the batter and drop gently in the frying pan until they are slightly yellow,
  6. Take them out and dip them in the fried dough for a second time and then back to the frying pan. Doing so makes the outer layer very crispy and crispy for a long time.
