Finishing the pisang goreng – 20 minutes

Peel the bananas and halve them. Halve them again, but lengthwise. You should end up with 4 pieces from 1 banana.

Coat the sliced bananas using the batter and deep fry them in the hot oil.

Make sure to not over-crowd the pan, this way the bananas will cook evenly. Remove from the hot oil when they are nice and golden brown, place them on the plate with a paper kitchen towel.

Lightly dust them with powdered sugar, serve immediately. Enjoy!
