pisang goreng | indonesian fried banana recipe - popular snack of indonesia, singapore, malaysia and Brunei.Pisang is banana in malay language. Here in singapore you can see separate shops in hawker centre serving hot pisang goreng. When i eat it first time, i can relate this taste with pazham pori kerala recipe. They used to add whole banana. Some shops use sliced pisang. I love to have sliced version than using whole bananas. So i made that way. If you want you can use whole banana. I was planning to make ethakka appam kerala recipe video. Both have same method so i posted this.

Where can I get goreng pisang?

Here in singapore, you can see seperate stalls in many hawker shops. They usually start by 11 am and close early by 5 or 6 pm. They used to fry after getting your order only. So you can get crispy and hot banana fritters.

Where do banana fritters originate from?

I read in some articles that deep frying technique from west africa. But i would say kerala pazham pori also has the same method. I am not sure where the banana fritters originates firstly.
