Was hungry during tea time as I had a light lunch, so was thinking of what to make to fill the tummy. Hmm..been some time since I last made Kuih Kodok, also known as Jemput-jemput Pisang.
It's a simple fuss-free kuih that can be done in an instant, and with superb satisfaction. From start till end meaning preparing, cooking, eating and washing, oh..plus photo-taking, it took me about 30 minutes. Forgot to add to the list, plus making a drink to go with it as well!
This is the third recipe I attempt, to view previous attempts, read here and here. Thanks QuayPo for the recipe, which I found to be quite similar my first trial here, but her recipe has the addition of baking powder but no sugar. Instead the sugar was optional as coating, and I like this outcome better because the oil used to fry the Kuih Kodok was cleaner as a result. Below is half of the original recipe. KUIH KODOK Source:Quay Po Cooks Yield: 20 pieces of 1" diameter balls Ingredients: (A) 90g plain flour ½ tsp baking powder a pinch of salt
250g slightly overripe bananas (mashed)*I used pisang emas, about 6 pcs of 2" length. Weight with peel on was 280g* 1 cup of desiccated coconut
(optional) *I omitted*
oil for deep frying
Method: 1/ Sift A then add mashed bananas and mix well into a soft batter.
2/ Heat oil in a pot until hot and drop tablespoonful of batter in.
3/ Remove with slotted ladle when golden brown and drain on absorbent paper.
For those who prefer this to be a little sweeter, coat the banana balls with icing sugar or cinnamon sugar while hot.
