Limpang Limpung - Deep Fried Banana and Bread

I love deep fried food, especially for snacking. I have a couple of sad looking bananas (read: really ripe), and a couple of almost stale sliced wheat bread sitting on my counter top. My first instinct was to throw both items away, but I was glad that I decided to make limpang limpung instead. Instant hot snacks in 15 minutes. I even managed to brew a glass of hot tea to accompany my limpang limpung!

Limpang limpung is deep fried banana fritters. Unlike pisang goreng, banana must be sliced into thin rounds and mixed with batter prior to deep frying and it resembles Malaysian kuih kodok. The traditional limpang limpung combines banana and jackfruit, but since jackfruit is not commonly found outside Indonesia (and I did have to use my stale bread, right?), I improvised and came up with my version of limpang limpung, and I also added a bit of cinnamon for a nice hint of spice. ♥

    Made these today. Just like what I craved for! Really happy that you have this recipe at your page. I have been searching for these type of banana fritters, which I thought it was Kuih Kodok but they taste different. I don't even know that they are called Limpang Limpung. Thanks for sharing ;)

    • Anita Anita says:

      Yup, kuih kodok doesn't use bread, so the taste is completely different. But I agree that it is way harder to find a limpang limpung recipe than the one for kuih kodok :)
