Ingredients
  

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

Instructions
 

For the batter

  • 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

  • Heat the oil until the wand is bubbly. Lower the heat to medium and start frying.
  • Dip the sweet potato, banana, and coconut in the batter. About to line up the shovel and gently push it into the frying pan.
  • Fry until the sweet potato and bonano fritters are golden brown on both sides.
  • Take it out and drain the oil.
  • Dip the bananas in the batter and drop gently in the frying pan until they are slightly yellow,
  • 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.

Notes

  • Soak the sweet potato in salt water to prevent darkening
