Once upon a time, there's a cluster of overripe bananas sitting long enough on kitchen counter. If the visible ugly brown spots and shrunken skin is not enough to put you off your appetite , then the overly sweet , earthy smell the comes with it certainly will. It's starting to look like that lonesome lady at the bar , who was once the hottest girl in class that every guy wants to date , but is now past her prime and nobody pays attention to. Yet, underneath that failing facade is still a promising core. Time for some make over then!
4 over ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
70 g, rice flour
70 g of purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
5 tbsp. dessicated coconut
1/4 cup soda water
oil for deep frying
powder sugar for dusting, optional
2. Using a fork, mash ripe bananas and add into the flour mixture.
3. Carefully fold everything together .
4. Heat oil in the wok until hot but not sizzling. Carefully drop spoonfuls of banana/flour mixture into the oil, make sure to leave space in between to prevent it from sticking together. Fry under medium heat until golden brown. Carefully remove with a slotted spoon and set on paper towel to drain. Serve immediately, dusted with powdered sugar or for special occasions, a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Make over project complete!
From dull and ugly...
to pipping and can't get enough hot!
So please excuse me, Fairy godmother will now enjoy the fruit of her labor....
And yes, she did live happily ever after...
