Thai Fried Bananas
October 27, 2008

This batter is impossibly thin. As others complained about this, I only added half the water, but even then the batter barely coats the banana. As there is no egg or baking powder in this recipe, the batter doesn't increase in size as it fries. If you're looking for a batter of any substantive size around the banana, this is not the recipe for you. There is just the thinnest coating on the banana -- not at all like any of the fried banana desserts I've tried at Thai restaurants. After this, I looked up other recipes online, and some (with different ingredients) said to let the batter sit for an hour. Perhaps this batter would have been better if it had sat for an hour, but I won't be trying it again. Two stars for the shredded coconut in the batter -- that's a deliciously innovative addition.
