Kueh Kodok (Deep Fried Banana Balls 炸香蕉丸)

Finally squeeze out some time to try a new recipe, this deep fried banana balls (kueh kodok or Jemput Jemput Pisang) is a traditional nyonya kueh. If you are tired of using your left over banana for banana cake, this kueh kodok is a good option. I have modified a bit from the original recipe because I just have 400g of banana and I added one teaspoon of rice flour into the batter. The end result is lovely, I like its a bit crisp crust with sweet soft inner. No water added to the batter, just use the mash ripe banana to combine well with the flour, I let my batter rest for 15 mins before deep fried! Recipe refer to The Nyonya Love cookbook by Ricky Ng with changes.Kueh Kodok (Deep Fried Banana Balls 炸香蕉丸)

1/2 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt

80g sugar (optional as depends on the sweetness from the banana you use)
Method:1. In a bowl, mash the ripe banana ad combine well with the rest of the ingredients.2. Let the batter rest for 15 mins.3. Use an ice-cream scoop, scoop a spoonful of batter and deep fry in a medium hot oil till golden brown. Use a chopstick to keep pressing and turning the banana ball while you are frying, this will help the banana ball to puff up nicely. Place the banana balls on a kitchen tissue to drain away oil before serve.
