Delicious Sesame Banana Fritters!

These Banana Sesame Fritters make a great snack whether for after school or after a meal. They are best accompanied by Home Made Coconut Ice Cream but can eaten alone as well!

This recipe comes from Cambodia, Southeast Asia and is a favorite treat among the Khmer People. It is often shared with guests as a mid-day snack or as a desert after a great Authentic Khmer Dish.

This would make a great appetizer or side dish at a family party or your next Super Bowl Party! Once your friends try these, they'll know you are an expert! Let's have a look at the Ingredients for this recipe:

Sesame Banana Fritters Recipe

  • Gradually add just enough Coconut Milk until you have the consistency of pancake batter.
  • Peel the first Banana and roll it up in either Wax Paper or for best results, in a sandwich or zip-lock baggie.

  • DO NOT MASH INTO A PUREE!
  • Repeat on remaining Bananas
  • Heat Oil over high heat in a deep fryer, wok, or deep skillet.
  • When Oil is hot enough for frying, dip Bananas one by one into the Batter.

      Oh yum--this sounds great. And I'll have to be sure to check out your link to the coconut ice cream as well. I'm sitting in a Panera right now and nothing on the menu sounds as good as this recipe. I'm looking forward to giving it a try once I get the ingredients. Thanks for SHARING and now I'll share it with my friends, too--maybe I can get a friend to make them for me since my shopping trip is still a few weeks away. :-)

      J.S. this sounds like an awesome recipe. I wish you had incorporated a picture to go with this. What we get here is fried banana chips-fine slices of fried raw banana, very similar to potato chips. Those taste awesome and I bet this would taste awesome too.

      Will be trying this soon.

      Thanks for sharing. voted up.

      Hello Sueswan! Deep frying can be very dangerous. If you don't feel comfortable doing it, have someone else who is comfortable do it for you. I am used to it as I have worked in the restaurant business for half my life. I hope that you enjoy this recipe and come back after you have tried it to let me know what you think! Thanks for the comment and the votes!

      Sounds delicious but I would have someone else make them for me as I am too nervous when it comes to deep frying.

      Voted up and awesome.
