1 cup self raising flour
¼ teaspoon salt
Good pinch of bi-carbonate of soda
4 bananas, peeled and cut in half horizontally
Peanut or rice bran oil for frying
Sift the flour, bi-carbonate of soda and salt into a bowl.
Mix with enough cold water to a coating consistency. If possible, leave for a few minutes before using.
Heat the oil to 180 degrees C. Dip the banana halvves in the batter and cook, no more than four at a time, in the hot oil until the batter is crisp and golden. Drain on paper towel.
I serve these with vanilla ice cream.
