Transcript:Thai Fried BananasHi, I'm Rachel Edelman, for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make a Thai fried banana dessert. It's simple and really delicious.
Thai Fried Banana IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- frozen spring roll pastry wrappers (6 inch square)
- 2 bananas
- cooking oil for frying
Prepare the Spring Roll WrappersAllow the wrappers to thaw for 5 to 10 minutes, before opening the packet. Open the packet and carefully separate 4 of the wrappers from the pile. Prepare your first wrapper by turning it 45 degrees, so it looks like a diamond.
Add Bananas to the WrappersPeel a banana and break it in half. Place the banana half in the center of the wrapper. Grasp either side of wrapper and bring toward the center. Hold the wrapper in place on top of the banana with one finger.
Roll the WrappersWith your other hand and thumb, bring the bottom end of the wrapper up over the banana. Tuck in the end and roll the banana over until it is completely wrapped. Secure the top corner of the wrapper by dipping your fingers in a little water and wetting the end to seal it like an envelope. Now the banana is ready to be fried.
Let's do it with the other banana half. Place the banana in the center, fold in the sides, bring up the bottom and roll it up to the top. Wet the top corner and seal.
Fry the Banana RollsNext, heat about 1 inch of cooking oil in a pot or deep frying pan. Keep the temperature at a medium high heat. The oil is hot enough when bubbles begin to rise from the bottom of pan.
Carefully place the wrapped bananas into the oil. Fry until the bananas until they are golden brown. If the oil does not cover the bananas, flip them over to fry both sides.
When they are done, turn off the burner and remove the pan from the heat. Take the bananas out from the oil and place them on a towel or absorbent paper to drain.
Serve and EnjoyServe the bananas warm. For a special dessert, top them with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.
