Fried Banana Fritters

This is an old traditional snack in most of Malay families, especially when there are too many ripe bananas at the back yard. We used to eat this for breakfast or evening tea. This is a trial an error recipe. You have to keep on trying to do it until you get the right texture and flavour. Once you master it you can do it with your eyes closed. But, it is worth trying since it is a really nice and tasty snack. The ingredients below are flexible. It's up to individual taste. If you like more bananas you have to add less flour and the fritters will be a softer. If you prefer the fritters to be more rounded and spongy use more flour. Either way the batter must look like cake batter before frying. I prefer more flour.
