Banana Fritters

Banana Fritters

Serves 4

1 cup self raising flour

¼ teaspoon salt

Good pinch of bi-carbonate of soda

Cold water

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.
