Fried Bananas

Just as South and Central American countries have their fried plantains, the Vietnamese have fried bananas, usually sold on the streets by women in front of their houses. The smaller and firmer the
bananas, the better.

Serves 4.

6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
4 medium bananas
peanut oil for frying

Mix together the flour, sugar, egg, and milk to make a smooth, paste-like batter. Leave to rest for one hour. Peel the bananas and slice each one in half lengthwise, then across into chunks about three inches long. Dip the banana pieces into the batter and shallow fry in hot oil for a few minutes or until golden brown all over. Drain quickly on a wire rack or paper towel, and serve warm. If you like, serve them with powdered sugar or honey, for extra sweetness.
