Pisang Goreng, or Indonesian fried bananas, is a delightful snack loved for its crispy exterior and sweet, soft interior. This popular street food dish is made by coating ripe bananas in a batter, then deep-frying them until golden brown. Whether enjoyed on its own or served with a scoop of ice cream or a drizzle of chocolate sauce, Pisang Goreng is a delicious treat that's perfect for satisfying cravings or indulging in a sweet snack.


4 ripe bananas

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons rice flour (optional, for extra crispiness)

1/4 cup sugar (adjust to taste)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup water (adjust as needed)

Oil for deep frying


Peel the bananas and cut them into halves or slices, depending on your preference. In a mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, rice flour (if using), sugar, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add water and whisk until you achieve a smooth batter with a pancake-like consistency. Heat oil in a deep frying pan or pot over medium heat. Dip each banana piece into the batter, ensuring it's evenly coated. Carefully place the coated bananas into the hot oil and fry until golden brown and crispy, turning occasionally to ensure even frying. Once the bananas are fried to perfection, remove them from the oil and drain excess oil on a paper towel-lined plate.


Serve Pisang Goreng hot as a snack or dessert. Optionally, you can sprinkle some powdered sugar or cinnamon on top for extra flavor. Pair Pisang Goreng with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of chocolate sauce, or enjoy it on its own for a delightful indulgence.

Pisang Goreng is a simple yet irresistible snack that captures the essence of Indonesian street food culture. With its crispy exterior and soft, sweet interior, Pisang Goreng is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you craving for more.
