Tags: Quick eats
  • 50 g (2 oz) self-raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 5 tablespoons cold milk
  • 4 bananas, each cut into 4 diagonal slices
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • 150 g (5 oz) smooth peanut butter
  • grated rind and juice of 1 lime
  • 100 ml (3 1/2 fl oz) water
  • To make the sauce, place the peanut butter, lime rind and juice and measurement water in a saucepan and cook over a low heat, stirring, until smooth.
  • Place the flour and sesame seeds in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the egg yolk and milk and gradually whisk into the flour to form a thick batter. Whisk the egg white in a clean bowl with a hand-held electric whisk until stiff, then fold into the batter. Tip the bananas into the batter and stir lightly to coat.
  • Heat about 5 cm (2 inches) of oil in a wok or large frying pan until a drop of batter rises to the surface surrounded by bubbles and starts to brown. Add the bananas and fry for 3–4 minutes until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
  • Serve immediately with the peanut butter sauce.
