How to Make a Banana Fritter Recipe 

I learned how to make a banana fritter recipe because I like bananas so well. You can make these fritters by dipping whole bananas or pieces of bananas in a batter and deep frying them. You could also chop bananas in a batter and drop this batter by the spoonful into hot oil to fry. These are recipes that are enjoyed in the cuisine here in the United States and in many countries around the world. Although they are cooked in different ways, they still are banana fritters.

FRIED BANANAS WHOLE (an Asian dessert)

The first time I ate any fried bananas was in an Asian restaurant. They were whole bananas and fried in a batter; still banana fritters. These were served with ice cream for an Asian dessert.
