Instructions
  • In a bowl, combine all ingredients for the batter and stir until smooth. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
    1
  • Heat 2-inches of vegetable oil until bubbles appear around the chopstick stand into it (180°C/360°F). Turn the heat to medium. Dip the banana into the batter and gently slide it into the hot oil.
    2
  • When the banana turns merely brown, take out and dip into the batter one more time. Fry it for a second time. Double-frying helps maintain the crunchiness of the fritters.

  • To make Banh chuoi chien, dip the banana, sweet potato and coconut flesh slices into the batter. Arrange them on a slotted spatula in a criss cross pattern. Gently slide into the hot oil and deep-fry until golden brown on both sides.
