Carefully peel bananas and cut into
halves lengthwise. Put in a bowl with the lime juice and 2 tablespoons
of white rum or whisky. Mix well together without damaging the banana
halves. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of white caster sugar. Turn the
banana halves from time to time. Allow to soak for 15 to 30 mins.
Melt the butter and allow to cool.
Beat the egg in a bowl with the milk.
Put the flour in another bowl, stir
in the salt (1/2 teaspoon) and 1 tablespoon of the white caster sugar.
Mix well. Slowly pour in the egg and milk mixture, stirring constantly
with a spatula. Add the melted butter. Mix well until the batter is
smooth and uniform.
Heat sufficient oil for deep frying
in a deep fryer (with enough oil to cover the banana halves in
batter). Wipe the banana halves with kitchen paper towel to absorb all
liquid and dip them in the batter two halves at a time. When the oil
is very hot but not smoking, put in the banana fritters and fry on
both sides. Remove from oil when golden in colour and drain on kitchen
When the fritters are ready, stack
them on a dish and serve at once, sprinkled with sugar.
Enjoy. Delightful as a sweet after
dinner with ice cream.
