After watching a certain episode of ch5 TV show - Throwback: Balik Kampong which showed 3 families trying to sell kampong food, I decided to try fry banana balls too
As there wasn't a measurement of ingredients mentioned in the show I googled YouTube n followed one recipe but slightly modified
It is best to use really ripe bananas so that they will taste sweeter. I was eager to make these and I didn't wait for the bananas to turn really ripe. However if you prefer less sweet than these are good enough.
Into a large bowl peel n cut the bananas into small slices - to help easier mashing later
Add in 2 tablespoon caster sugar
Add in 3 tablespoon brown sugar
Mash the bananas and set aside
Prepare your flour
Mix 2 cups of plain flour with 1/4 pack of yeast which is about 3 gms - youncan get this brand from Fairprice supermarket
1 sachet is 11 gm
Mix well n add in about 80% into the bananas
Use a spatula n mix in
Now add the rest of the flour n add about 1/3 cup of water to mix until this consistency
Then keep the bowl covered n rest for 30 minutes
Heat a wok with oil deep enough for frying. Note there must be bubbles forming on the base of wok.
Turn the heat lower n drop in small balls of batter to fry.
After a few seconds use your frying spatula to move the balls around so they won't stick together.
Fry until golden brown. Remove n drain on paper towels.
Flip over for even frying
Depending on your preference - if you fry for longer time the skin will be crispier but can turn slightly darker
