Banana and Pineapple Fritters Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

3 tablespoons






50 g

150 g

1/2 teapoon

30 ml

1/4 teaspoon


Vegetable oil for deep frying

Bananas, peeled and halved lengthways

Pineapple rings, fresh or canned,

dried on absorbent kitchen paper

Icing sugar, sieved


Self-raising flour

Plain flour

Baking powder

Vegetable oil


Egg white, beaten until stiff

Method :
  • Make the batter first. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and oil in a large bowl.

  • Stir in just enough water to make a smooth paste. Fold in the egg white a little at a time.

  • Heat some oil in a wok for deep frying. Dip the fruit in the batter and cook in small batches (do not put more than can comfortably float on the oil) until puffy and golden. This should not take more than 2 minutes.

  • Drain the cooked fritters on absorbent kitchen paper and sprinkle with the sieved icing sugar.

  • Serve while hot.
