The ever popular 'FRIED BANANA' with a gluten free crispy coating. Only a few simple ingredients and minutes to prepare so perfect for your simple breakfast.

Getting the batter right is key to this dish. It should have a light and crispy texture after being deep fried. To achieve this, I use rice flour for the batter and crushed rice cereals for the coating. Once coated, the bananas should be dropped gently into hot oil and fried for just a couple of minutes. For best results, use sweet and ripe but firm bananas. Bananas that are overly ripe will be too soft and soggy after frying.

This recipe is suitable for those on a gluten free diet as the batter is made using rice flour and rice cereals.
