Yes, cooking time once again and I made Maruya or Banana Fritters yesterday. I had 3 pieces of Saba (Banana Plaintain) in excess of the dish my mother cooked last Saturday. And so I thought of making Maruya for the hubby.
Maruya is my all time favorite merienda (afternoon snack) when I was a kid and until this day. I love the crunch of the batter and the sweetness of the banana, just right for my sweet tooth hehe!
I got this recipe at Favorite Filipino Recipe here.
1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
3 ripe saba (banana plantain), peeled and sliced lengthwise
2 cups vegetable oil
flour, for dredging · sugar
Cooking Procedures :
In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add milk and egg, beat until smooth.
Heat oil in a frying pan (or a large saucepan) over medium heat.
In batches, roll banana slices in flour and then dip in batter. Fry in hot oil until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels. Roll in sugar. Place in a serving dish and serve.
