pisang goreng 199x300 Pisang Goreng Fried Banana


  • 1 cup / 125 gms ‏plain flour
  • ½ cup / 80 gms ‏fine rice flour
  • Pinch ‏of salt (1/8 tsp)
  • Pinch ‏of turmeric powder (optional)
  • 2 tsp ‏baking powder
  • 1 tsp ‏kapur (powdered lime), mixed to a paste with a little water
  • 1 cup / 250 ml ‏ICE COLD WATER
  • As needed ‏- 'new oil' for deep frying (I use peanut oil)
  • 8 small -  medium ‏sized bananas (just ripe and still firm)


  1. Sift the flour, rice flour , baking powder, salt and turmeric powder into a bowl.
  2. Keep bananas peeled. If using plantain, or larger bananas, slice into uniform sized, elongated pieces.
  3. Add the oil for frying to a medium sized wok.  Turn on the heat and bring to frying temperature, while you mix the batter. (If using an instant read thermometer, it should read about 190 ºc).
  4. Add the powdered lime paste to the bowl of sifted ingredients.
  5. Gradually, pour in the ice cold water, whilst stirring to make a thick batter. Make sure the lime paste is well incorporated/distributed.
  6. Dip each banana ( or slice)  into the batter turning to coat thoroughly.
  7. Slide into the hot oil and fry in batches. Do not overcrowd the wok.
  8. Allow the oil to come back to temperature before adding next batch. Strain and discard any fried bits from the oil, before adding each batch. I usually fry two at a time.
  9. Fry till golden brown and crisp 4-6 minutes.
  10. Drain throughly and serve warm.

  • If you happen to have lots of time, you can even chill the batter in the fridge. Add all ingredients for batter except the slaked lime and baking powder. Add this prior to frying.
  • Mix in the powdered lime and the ice cold water into the batter immediately prior to frying. Get the oil hot before you mix the batter.
  • Use ‘new oil’ for frying this snack, as the batter will absorb color and flavor of oil used for other purposes. This will also make the Pisang Goreng less crispy.

Key Ingredients: Banana, Plain Flour, Rice Flour, Oil, Salt, Baking Powder.
