I've written about banana fritters before, here, but at that time left out the Mercedes Benz of fried banana: khao mao. For regular fried banana, the banana is dipped in a simple rice flour batter and then fried, sometimes with sesame seeds and pandanus leaves for added flavour. For khao mao, the banana is covered in a thicker coconut coating first and then fried. Do look out for them when you're getting fried banana, the taste of sweet banana & coconut goes real well together. If you get khao mao fresh & warm and then also source some ice cream and Cointreau liquor to go with it then you've got a dessert that's so good that authorities in charge of the social-order campaign would most likely ban it if the word ever got out. Don't tell anyone you got this from me. 0)
