Online recipe for fried bananas

Online recipes are abundant in many places on the internet including allrecipes.com and many online writers right here on HubPages are contributing recipes among their other writings as well. Fried bananas are sweet, tasty and satisfying. Here in this hub is an easy online recipe for fried bananas.

In various Caribbean and Latin cultures, it is common to use plantains for cooking a side dish. In a Jamaican dish for example, the three elements of rice and peas, plantains, and meat such as curried chicken make up a common entrée. Plantains are often used by Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and Trinidadians as well, just to name a few. Depending on your own location, plantains may be difficult to find in your local grocery store. Within the United States for example, the plantains are easy to find in certain neighborhoods where cultures bring high demand. Neighborhood grocery stores and supermarkets that do not see a high demand for plantains do not always stock them. If you are craving some delicious plantains and looking for a simple substitution, here is an easy recipe for fried bananas. Sweet and scrumptious, these bananas can be served in the dinner plate as a side dish or in a smaller dish as a dessert. Using the type of dish in which creme brulee is often served makes for a nice presentation. These fried bananas can be served alone, with a little extra cinnamon sprinkled on top or with some vanilla ice cream. You might have seen the latter offered on the dessert menu of a local Thai restaurant.

 First, peel the bananas and slice them. There are many ways in which you might choose to do so: lengthwise or in smaller thin slices. As with plantains, you will often see them cut and presented in different ways. Below are some examples. Length wise works wells for the dinner plate and smaller slices are good for a dessert dish.

For frying the bananas

First, heat a frying pan with a coating of extra mildly flavored olive oil or canola oil. While the oil is heating, pour 1/2 cup of white flour, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and and two tablespoons of cinnamon into a bowl and mix to distribute evenly.

Next, take the slice of banana in whichever sizes you chose to cut them and dip them into the bowl of flour mix, coating well. As you coat each slice, place it into the heated frying pan.

 Observe your fried bananas as they begin to turn a golden brown and flip them with a spatula as needed. Allow excess oil to drip out as you remove the banana slices from the pan or absorb excess oil on a paper towel before transferring the bananas to serving dish.

Done, serve and enjoy!
