  • neutral oil like rapeseed, sunflower or vegetable, for deep-frying
  • 10 ripe apple or saba bananas peeled (see tip, below), or 5 overripe plantains, peeled and halved (or cut into thirds if they’re very big)
  • For the batter
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 50 g rice flour
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp white sesame seeds


  • STEP 1
  • Pour the oil into a saucepan to a depth of 5cm and heat to 170C. (If you don’t have a temperature probe, see step 2.) Meanwhile, mix the batter ingredients with 200ml ice-cold water and ¼ tsp salt in a large bowl until fully combined.
  • STEP 2
  • Check the oil is ready. If you don’t have a temperature probe, drop in a little batter – it should sizzle immediately. Dip a piece of banana into the batter. Gently lower into the oil and fry until crisp and golden brown, about 3 mins. Repeat with all the banana pieces and batter, regulating the oil temperature so that it doesn’t get too hot. Put the cooked fritters on a baking tray in a low oven to keep warm, then drain on a cooling rack over a baking tray lined with kitchen paper.
