funny menu for you
100g/4oz plain flour
1⁄2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons desiccated or
4 firm bananas
vegetable oil for deep-frying
2 tablespoons clear honey
vanilla ice cream, to serve (optional)
• Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Stir in
the sugar. Whisk in the egg and just enough water (you will need about
6 tablespoons, added a tablespoon at a time) to make a thin batter.
Whisk in the coconut.
• Heat enough oil for deep-frying in a preheated wok.
• Peel the bananas. Carefully cut each one in half lengthways, then cut in
half widthways. Dip in the batter, then gently drop a few pieces at a
time into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown.
• Remove the bananas from the oil using a slotted spoon, and drain on
kitchen paper. Serve immediately with honey drizzled over and some
vanilla ice cream, if you like.
