Easy Banana Fritters

Banana fritters is an old traditional Malay delicacy and a popular Malaysian snack. It is also called “Jemput-jemput pisang” or otherwise known as “cekodok pisang”. Easy banana fritters, as the name implies, is relatively easy to make and does not take up much time. The main ingredient for this dish is banana (pisang), so if you have leftover bananas at home which are really ripe and you don’t know what to do with them, this is the recipe for you. A touch of toasted sesame seeds in the mashed banana batter adds a really extra crunch to every bite of these scrumptious little fried banana balls.

Notes

Make sure the oil is not TOO hot or else it will burn the banana fritters immediately.
By adding sugar JUST before frying, the banana fritters will be crispier on the outside.
The ingredients for this recipe are flexible. If you like more bananas, then add less flour to have a softer fritter. Otherwise add more flour for a more rounded fritters.
