1 1/4 cups
ripe bananas, sliced
oil for frying
hi I am indonesian--and pisang goreng is just the best. if you try to bake the bananas in the oven on a baking sheet (425 F) until they're crispy, and use egg substitutes and reduced-calorie margarine (instead of butter), you'll cut down on a lot of fat.
I made these just to try something different. They were pretty good, although we could barely taste the rum flavoring. Also, if I were to make them again, I would use bananas that weren't quite so ripe - the fritters were a little too mushy for my liking. Thanks, Unieng!
I'm an Indo girl too, and I LOVE pisang goreng!! DO NOT use banana's that are too ripe, they'll be soggy after you fry them. Adding the rum was something new to me...but it's delicious!!
I've made this a few times and it has come out perfectly every time. Try dusting the bananas with powdered sugar for a nice presentation or drizzling with chocolate sauce. I add regular vanilla instead of powdered vanilla and often exclude the butter. If you want it to have a stronger rum taste add a little at the end. So easy and delicious!
Really good!! I didn't have the vanilla powder or rum flavouring, but added cinnamon instead. Everybody loved these! Thanks for the recipe.
This is really good. Reminds me of home. You can also use cooking bananas (plaintain). Let them ripe first for 1 or 2 more weeks, until their skins turned black. By then, the taste will be sweet and the meat will be firm, not mushy like the regular banana. Yumm....
Loved this recipe...I was always craving these. If you like fried bananas from oriental resturants...you'll love these. Thanks!!!
I HAVE BEEN EATING PISANG GORENG MY ENTIRE LIFE, THIS WAS EXCELLENT. MY PARENTS LOVED IT.
