I posted once before jemput-jemput durian. That was my own take on the classic Malay jemput-jemput or fritters. It’s usually made with bananas.

And since the weather here has been absolutely punishing, the bananas that I had just bought hours ago quickly ripened so fast left out on the kitchen counter. So I decided to save them and make these banana fritters which The Son loves so much.

It’s so simple to make. I used three overripe Malaysian bananas, 1 cup plain flour, 1 tbsp raw sugar, a pinch of bicarbonate soda and a pinch of salt. Now, there is no need to add salt at all actually but I just like the idea of sweet and salty together.

Mash bananas first and then add the rest of the ingredients with 1/2 cup of tap water and mix them all up. Using an ice cream scoop, drop dollops of the dough and fry them till golden and cooked through.

Delicious eaten hot or warm with a cup of tea. 🍌🍌🍌
