    List of Ingredients

    Candied Banana Fritters

    Ingredients :

    1 x Egg beaten
    3 tbl Flour
    3 tbl Cornstarch
    1 tbl Water
    3 med Bananas (not too ripe)
    Oil for deep-frying
    1 tbl Peanut oil
    1/2 cup Sugar

    Method :
    In a small bowl mix the beaten egg, flour, cornstarch and water to form a smooth batter. Slice the bananas into 1/2-inch-thick pieces and coat with the batter.
    Deep-fry at 360 degrees for 20 seconds in two batches and remove and drain. Allow the oil to return to temperature and fry the slices, all at once, a second time just until golden brown.
    While the slices are frying heat the oil and sugar in a small saucepan. Cook on medium heat until the sugar dissolves and turns a very light golden color.
    Coat the bananas in the syrup, then plunge them into a serving bowl of cold water and ice cubes. Serve at once so that the bananas are still hot and the syrup crystalized.
    Use a fork or spoon to remove the banana slices from the water for each serving.
    This recipe serves 6 to 8 for dessert.
    Comments: This dessert is quite spectacular. Be careful with it; the sugar syrup is very hot and will burn.
