banana fritters...

with durian ice-cream...

Yep, durian. Don't try this recipe at home if you're not a fan of this fruit. The smell of durian will cover the whole kitchen and will stay there forever. I need to warn you. :)

I make this banana fritter in Thai style by mixing rice flour and all-purpose flour together with baking powder and salt, then add some roasted sesame and milk. Dip the banana into the batter and coat with dry coconut, then deep fried. Serve on milk chocolate sauce and dust with white chocolate powder. Don't forget the ice-cream and here you go.

I loove loove durian!! I grew up in Jakarta, and we'll have durian fest when the fruit comes in season twice a year. We have durians in Australia too, but somehow the smell's no match for what we have back home. And what's durian without the smell?

Beautiful combination. Banana fritter or pisang goreng is another fave streetside snack that I miss so much now. So thank you for posting the recipes!!

Alejandra said...

Oh my gosh! I have to make these for my boyfriend when he gets home from a trip he's on. He loves coconut and bananas. I've never tried durian but I've been dying to! Perhaps i should take advantage and experiment while he's away!!

Jerry said...

Oh durian! Never had it, but want too!

Thip said...

Sorry about that Sanna. I'm adding subscribe feature on the right side of my blog and give info about my contact too.

Alejandra, you can add sweetened flake coconut into the batter as well.

Jerry, before you try durian ice-cream, make sure you are not allergic to the fresh one first. :)
