How to Cook Indonesian Deep-Fried Banana
A popular Indonesian snack, pisang goreng is battered and deep-fried banana. It is the Indonesian version of a banana fritter. I had the opportunity to enjoy authentic pisang goreng during my visit to Indonesia, where this snack is sold all day long by street vendors. Now that I'm on vacation again, I find myself craving this snack. I decided to try to re-create it at home.

For the batter mix:
- 1 cup all purpose flour

- Slice bananas. Set aside.
- Mix all the ingredients for the batter mix.

Tips and Techniques
