Food Trip Friday: Fried Bananas, The Khmer Way!
One of my favorite side street and afternoon Filipino snacks is the turon and also the deep fried with flour version we call in Bicol, baduya. So, its no wonder a few months after we got here, I asked if perhaps Khmers have that also.
Hubby said they also have grilled bananas and also the deep friend version. Since I already tasted the slightly salted grilled bananas on sticks, I opted to try the fried ones. But when he came back after buying it, and when I looked at what he brought, the first thing that came to mind is – ‘So, where are the bananas?’.
Lol! Apparently they mash the ripe bananas first, coat it with flour sprinkled with sesame seeds and deep fry it. How was it? Hmm, delicious albeit different from what I was used to…
