About this recipe: If you've been to Thailand and tried this common street food, you've most certainly not forgotten it. These tasty bananas are dipped in a coconutty batter and fried till crisp. Try serving for dessert with ice cream as a sweet ending to your Thai meal.
The small bananas used in Thailand are called 'Nam Wa' bananas, which are a dwarf cultivar with similar flavour to regular bananas. Use any type of small bananas if you can find them, or simply use regular bananas. Just be sure that they are not too ripe.
This recipe is great! It is very easy to put together and the fried batter stays crispy, so you can make a batch and relax. Definitely a crowd pleaser. - 17 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes SE Asia)
