Crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside. This simple recipe is an immediate crowd pleaser, and a great finish to any meal (especially Thai). We finished ours with a bit of icing sugar and toasted coconut…before dipping them in nutella and honey! Thanks to About.com for the recipe.
- Preparation time
- Cooking time
- bunch of bananas
- 1 package small spring roll wrappers (or large package if small is unavailable)
- optional: Honey or chocolate sauce
- optional: ice cream
- oil for deep frying
Wrap bananas in spring roll wrappers (if using large wrappers, cut them to fit the size of the bananas) and set aside. We found that if you cut the bananas in half, and then cut them again lengthwise they’ll fit a small spring roll wrapper perfectly. Place enough oil in a wok or deep frying pan to cover wrapped bananas (1-2 inches). Heat oil on medium-high heat. Oil is ready when you can see bubbles rising through the oil from the base of the pan.
Using tongs, gently place wrapped bananas in hot oil and deep fry until golden brown. Remove and place on a paper towel (to absorb excess oil).
Place a banana on a serving plate and with honey or chocolate sauce and ice cream.
