Banana Fritters

The banana fritters at PF Chang's is one of my favourite desserts. The warm rolls served with cold vanilla icecream.. hmm now if that can't lift your spirits, what can ?? This recipe is the continuation from my trial with Thai cooking. The dessert was an instant hit with my friends V & G. One of the recipes that hardly takes any time to make, but tastes amazing.


Banana - 2 (slightly firm)
Coconut Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 2 tbsps
Dessicated Coconut - 1 cup
Oil for deep frying


  • Mix sugar with coconut milk and set aside.
  • Spread the dessicated coconut on a big plate
  • Peel the bananas and cut them into 1 inch rounds.
  • Cut the wonton wrappers into strips, one inch width (~Equal to the banana width, so that it can be rolled in the wrapper)
  • Using a fork, pick a banana piece and dip it in the coconut milk mixture.
  • Then roll them on the dessicated coconut to coat all over.
  • Place the coated banana on a wonton wrapper strip and roll. Seal the ends with coconut milk and set aside.
  • Repeat for the remaining banana pieces.
  • Heat oil in a wide skillet. Deep fry the bananas till they are golden brown, turning half way through.
  • Serve warm with cold vanilla icecream.
