    8                    Bananas -- peeled
      1/2   c            Self-rising flour
      1/2   c            Rice flour
    1       tb           Cornstarch
    1       c             -- Water
      1/2   ts           Salt
    4       tb           Fine brown sugar
                         Oil -- for deep frying
 
    Slice each banana lengthwise. Sift flours and add to
   water. Stir until consistency of cream. Add salt. Heat
   oil and, when smoking, dip each piece of banana in
   batter. Shake off excess and lower into hot oil. Fry
   until golden brown and roll in brown sugar. Serve with
   ice cream.
    As quoted from the book, “This is an exotic way to
   treat bananas and it’s practically a national snack
   among migrant populations in Southeast Asia who serve
   it with scoops of coconut or mango ice cream.” Source:
