Maruya or Banana Fritters

I am currently craving for this. It's one of my favorite Filipino snacks when I was a still a kid was. In the province, people normally used rice flour when cooking it but later switched to regular flour for convenience. I remember a relative frying her maruya in jackfruit leaves to stop it from sticking to the pan. Thanks to whoever invented teflon pans. My banana fritters look perfect and yummy.












Ingredients:
2 pieces ripe saba bananas
1/2 cup flour
1 tbsp sugar to taste
1 tbsp water
oil for frying

Procedure:
1. Cut the bananas into small cubes.
2. Mix bananas, flour and water.
3. Divide the batter into small portions.
4. Form into patties and fry until golden brown.
5. Serve hot.

If you think 2 bananas are not enough. Just double every ingredient and you're good to go. Happy snacking!
