You gotta be kidding me !! *LOL* that is probably your first expression when you see this recipe on my blog after a month (or more) no updating my page . Well, I know everybody know how to fried banana but what they don't know (may be) is how to make a very crispy, crunchy , golden batter. It's probably simple thing but for me this is a big deal ^_^

Gosh ! you see this is not joking, but I've been searching through Internet to make a crunchy batter , dig to many cooking book e.t.c until I found one recipe and for now I'm happy with the result. For me, who loves banana especially fried banana fritters or PISANG GORENG or GORENG PISANG like Indonesian people called. Eating the crispy, crunchy batter is always bring a different sensation, aha.. i know you will laugh at me.. but if you try you will know what I'm talking about.. ^_^
