Banana Fritters

Djibout Banana Fritters

I have to confess that I completely messed up this dish. I don't really know how, they were , but the pancakes formed a golden crust on the outside without the middle cooking. That meant that it was impossible to flip them, they just made a mess. The flavor, specially of the golden crust, was great but only one of my pancakes looked good enough to photograph. I tried both deep frying them and frying them in a little bit of oil.

Banana Fritters


  • 6 soft bananas
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • water
  • oil for frying


Mash bananas. Add the flour. Dissolve the sugar in 1/4 cup of water. Add nutmeg and mix well. Add water and mix until the batter has the consistency of pancake batter.

Heat oil in a wide skillet over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup batter on the pan and cook until golden brown, flip and repeat.
