Pisang goreng (Fried Banana)

Im already drooling just by typing those words. I can have pisang goreng everyday for breakfast and tea, just like i can have currypuff, nasi lemak, cekodok, kuih keria, pulut panggang and if I dont stop now, il be in deep trouble.

Among all those things that I mentioned earlier, pisang goreng is the easiest one to make. All that you need is plaintain (sliced about 1cm), vegetable oil and the batter. To make the batter, here's the ingredient: (which btw is the 1st time I use measurement!)

2 tablespoon of flour (multi-purpose)
1 tablespoon of tempura flour
A pinch of tumeric powder
A pinch of salt
12 tablespoon of cold water


Heat the oil in a deep pan. Mix all the ingredients above into batter. Coat the plaintain with the batter and fry them when the oil is hot. Keep turning them until they are golden brown and serve. That's it. ;)

Hey, I never thought to fry the pisang that way. Too bad we can't get pisang rastali or pisang emas in these regions, eh?

I really miss having Pisang goreng, esp the one in Penang where it's crunchy on the outside and melting hot on the inside. Yum!

EW, thanks for visiting my blog. actually i did find pisang emas once here at the store. I made cekodok pisang w it but ate it alone. hubby only likes plain cekodok. lol!

And thanks for visiting (both of)mine :)

You can find pisang emas there?! OMG...the partialities of life!! I want some too!

I think I just didn't look hard enough, I am sure those asian stores might have some when in season, heck, i even saw durian on sale once in chinatown..maybe can make cekodok durian hehehe :)

Cekodok pisang IS the yumz really, i love buying a bunch during the ramadan month's food bazaar.
