Pisang goreng ( fried banana in Indonesian/Malay) is a very popular snack made of banana or plantain, covered in batter and then deep fried and is mostly found throughout Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand ,Singapore,Brunei and Philippines. In Indonesia and Malaysia, pisang goreng is often sold by street vendors. In the Philippines, it is called by different names as it has different variations. Most street vendors will then sell it as is.These days Restaurants that serve pisang goreng present it in many ways, such as with icing sugar dusted, cheese, jam, condensed milk, or chocolate. People in some parts of Malaysia even have it with Soy sauce.In Suriname this snack is also known as bakabana (meaning baked banana in the local language). Pisang raja is a popular kind of banana used for pisang goreng.
My family loves this popular snack. It hardly takes 20 mins to prepare this wonderful yummy snack with basic ingredients in the pantry. I like to have it with cinnamon powder sprinkled on it or with Vanilla Ice cream and no other variations.
