For the Banana Fritters:
– 4 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/4 cup cornstarch
– 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– A pinch of salt
– 1/2 cup water
– Vegetable oil for frying
For the Topping:
– Powdered sugar
– A sprinkle of cinnamon
– A dollop of whipped cream (optional)
– Fresh mint leaves for garnish (optional)
1. Prepare the Banana Fritter Batter:
– In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, cornstarch, granulated sugar, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
– Gradually add water to the dry ingredients, whisking until you achieve a smooth batter with a slightly thick consistency.
2. Heat the Oil:
– In a deep skillet or frying pan, pour enough vegetable oil to submerge the banana slices.
– Heat the oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C). You can test the oil’s readiness by dropping a small amount of batter into it; it should sizzle and float to the surface.
3. Coat and Fry the Bananas:
– Dip each banana slice into the batter, ensuring it’s evenly coated.
– Carefully place the coated banana slices into the hot oil, being cautious not to overcrowd the pan.
– Fry the banana fritters until they turn golden brown and crispy, usually for about 2-3 minutes per side.
– Using a slotted spoon, remove the fritters from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
4. Serve and Garnish:
– While the banana fritters are still warm, dust them with powdered sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
– For an extra indulgence, add a dollop of whipped cream and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
