Fritter refers to any fried and battered fruit, meat, seafood, or vegetable. The taste of this dish may be either sweet or savory. The batter I used for this recipe is my four-ingredient crispy batter recipe, but I needed to replace the salt with sugar to complement the sweetness of the fruit. This eggless tropical fruit fritters recipe has a crispy outside and a bit mushy with a bite inside. Enjoy it as a dessert or a snack.

        Hi Miebakagh,

        Yes, you can replace a regular banana with plantain! If I'm not mistaken, plantain contains less sugar than the regular ones so much healthier. Another difference is the texture as plantain is firmer compared to other varieties of bananas.

        Breadfruit is a member of jackfruit family. Jackfruit is bigger than the breadfruit. This fruit has yellowish flesh too. Compared to breadfruit, jackfruit contains seeds which are edible too.

        Hello Dredcuan, I am not at home with fried bananas. Can I substitute ripe plantain for the banana?

        Jackfruit can be a little confusing to me. I take it that the jackfruit you mean is not the one found in the tropic. We called jackfruit here breadfruit. Could their mean the same thing? I am seeing the banana in the story. Could you include a picture of the jackfruit in your next review? Many thanks.

        Hi Peggy,

        Nice question, the closest fruit I know is Durian. Though I wouldn't recommend it because of its foul odor that might not be appealing to you.

        As an alternative, you can use any fruits you want. Like what I said to Mary. My personal favorites are pineapple rings and apple rings. Just remember that if you're cooking a mixture of fruits, freeze it first to hold its shape. If it's sliced, you can continue cooking it with the batter. I hope these tips helped you. Enjoy!

        Hello Liz,

        Thank you for appreciating my ideas. Freezing the mixture is definitely a must so it won't blend into the batter. No need to worry because as the batter starts to cook, the frozen mixture starts to defrost as well.

        These look simple enough to make and are undoubtedly delicious. I have never tasted jackfruit. Is there any other kind of fruit that has a similar taste?

        Hi Mary,

        Other than bananas, I would recommend pineapple (rings) and apple (rings) for your fritters. These two are simply the best as well!

        Actually, you can use any of your favorite fruits when you make fritters. Just remember two things. The first tip is if you want a bit mushy texture, freeze it to hold the shape. Otherwise, you'll end up mixing the fruit with your batter. 2nd tip, you can also make slices of these soft fruits. It's easier to make. All you need to do is dip it into the batter.

        I hope this helps. Enjoy!

        Hi Pamela,

        Try it! You will surely love the taste of banana and jackfruit when mixed together. It's a little bit greasy, but still fine at least once in a while. LOL

        I love fritters and this recipe seems great. However, bananas are not really something we normally eat. What would be a good substitute?
