Pisang Nugget

A popular snack in Indonesia, the Nugget Pisang has its roots in Goreng Pisang (or, quite literally, fried banana) and is essentially a golden, crispy nugget of sweet and crunchy. Preparing the dish is fail proof – a matter of mashing the bananas, folding it in diced bread and mixing it gently into the batter. The difficulty lies in perfecting the crunch! Do ensure that your oil is piping hot and not to overcrowd your pot as it might cause your banana nuggets to become oily and soggy.
