Pisang Goreng - Indonesian Fried Banana

I love LOVE pisang goreng (fried bananas), and I am sure this is among Indonesian most favorite food. Pisang goreng is popular eaten as snack, breakfast item, or pretty much anytime of the day. It is more traditional to use pisang kepok, but regular banana (like the one in picture) works just as well, so don’t worry if you cannot find pisang kepok. Best if you can eat these with a glass of red jasmine tea.

Serves: 4


  • 4 bananas
  • 75 gram rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 125 ml water
  • oil for deep frying


  1. Combine rice flour, tapioca flour, salt, and water in a mixing bowl.
  2. Peel bananas and cut each into two. Make three slices along its length, but keep the bottom 1 inch intact, so it can be opened up like a fan.

  4. Dip the bananas into the batter and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towel or wire rack. Serve immediately.
