Cekodok (Banana Fritter with Coconut)

Hubby has been eating bananas for his diet for months.He said 1 banana is equivalent to 2 fruits counts. Well,so every week I will get a "hand or bunch of bananas" for him .He is quite fussy if the banana turned to brown dots,he won't eat..So,I been keeping all the brown bananas in ziploc bag in fridge and have no idea what to do with it anymore..Sometimes I baked banana cake,sometimes I make banana pancake and today I decided to use it to make banana fritter!! Banana Fritter a.k.a Cekodok or Jemput-jemput (Malay language) is a popular teatime snack in Malaysia.Beside banana I also added some desiccated sweetened coconut in the's quite awesome!!

5-6 medium size overripe banana,peeled and mashed 
1 cup all purpose flour 
1 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp salt 
1 cup desiccated sweetened coconut 
4-5 tbsp water or coconut milk 
1 cup frying oil(canola or corn ) 
2-3 tbsp granulated sugar


1:Prepare deep aluminum pot or fryer with oil at medium heat 350F.Mashed bananas in mixing bowl,add in flour,baking powder,salt water,sugar and dessicated coconut,mix well.  

2:Use a big spoon,dip into the hot oil before scoop the batter into the hot oil.Repeat the same procedure.Do not overcrowded the pot or fryer 

 3:Fry the fritters until golden brown before dish out to lined paper towel to drained the excess oil.Serve warm with tea or coffee as snack.
