Pisang Goreng ( Indonesian Fried Banana)

                    This is the 5th post for ” Muslim Food Bloggers Challenge “. The theme for this month’s  Challenge is ” Indonesian Cuisine “. As I am trying Indonesian recipe for the first time, I chose a very easy snack which is similar to our Kerala’s  “Pazham Pori / Banana Fritters” which I posted earlier in my blog. The difference between them is, we don’t add cornflour in Pazhampori while making the batter. 


4-6 ripe bananas
1/2 cup plain flour
1/4 cup cornflour
1 tbsp rice flour
1 tbsp sugar
a pinch of salt
cold water as required
oil for deep frying


  1. Peel and slice bananas lengthwise and keep it aside. ( I used Lady Finger Bananas).
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the plain flour, cornflour, rice flour, baking powder, sugar and salt and mix well.
  3. Then slowly add the cold water and whisk/ mix well to make a smooth batter with no lumps. The batter should not be too runny and not too thick.
  4. Heat enough oil in a pan for deep frying. Dip the banana slices into the batter and fry until golden brown and crispy.
  5. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towel and serve warm….





  1. I thank you from bottom of my heart Shabna for posting this recipe…as Banana fritters are my all time favorite…and I can have them any time of the day. You have made them look so tempting
