I learned of this dish when I was in Kenya. Potatoes aren't that common in Kenya but bananas are.
Altered ingredient amounts. I added garlic to the oil and used huile de noix (walnut oil / peanut ) - 22 Oct 2008

I had made banana fries before I found this posting, and I want to add that for people who must monitor their blood glucose, green bananas have resistant starch which is less likely to elevate bg. I have type 2 diabetes, and I have eaten as many as three bananas prepared this way - all within 2 or 3 hours' time, and never suffered a spike in blood glucose. They are delicious and healthy! - 19 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
