About three years ago, I was at a Japanese restaurant eating things I have never eaten! My experience there made one of my first food blog posts.
I really enjoyed one of the desserts and that is what I decided to try three years later!
Like I’ve mentioned before, my family members are usually my ‘lab rats’. They will eat anything I try, whether good or bad (mostly good) before I recreate it again. And so, just like with any other dish, they were the first to try this. And it’s safe to say, they loved it!
Now, the problem is, I cannot remember what it is called. (You know the way you watch live cooking and the chef serves you a dish as they say what it is called? I can’t remember). Sadly.
I decided to do a little google search and they call it Banana Tempura. However, mine is slightly different.

Anyway, here’s what you’ll need:
Cooking oil for frying
Ripe bananas (I used about 7), cut into halves – whichever half suits you 😉
2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut
What to do:
Heat oil in a pan over medium heat.
Fry the banana halves in the hot oil until lightly golden, about 2-3 minutes. Drain on paper towels, and repeat the same process for the other banana pieces.
Then dust the fried bananas with the desiccated coconut.
Serve while warm, with ice cream on the side.
There you have it! Try it out and let me know how that goes 🙂
See you next week.
