Requested Recipe- Jemput Pisang-Banana puffs

Jemput Pisang (recipe taken from Delicious Local Cakes and Kuih)

350 g plain flour (sifted)
200 g brown sugar
800 g ripe bananas (mashed)
oil for deep frying

1. Mix sifted flour with brown sugar and mashed bananas.

2. Heat up oil in a wok.

3. When oil is hot, drop tablespoons of banana mixture into it. Deep fry till kuih turns golden brown.

4. Remove from wok. Drain well on a paper towel.

5. Arrange kuih on a serving plate. Serve with palm sugar and grated white coconut. (we don't do this and I have no idea why you should..could be for dipping or something.)


  1. yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay X2

    ps- working on button

  2. according to the gram conversion calculator:

    1.5 cups flour
    0.87 cups brown sugar
    3.5 cups bananas


  3. We don't eat this with palm sugar and coconut. Lol. Everyone eats it just as it is. it's already sweet on it's own. If the banana is sweet, don't add to much sugar.

  4. Nur Amirah, I know eh? I have no idea why this cookbook says to do this. And its a book from Malaysia written by a Malaysian. Maybe they thought it made the picture look nice or something.
