- Mix all the batter ingredients together and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Then take out the batter and mix with roasted black sesame.

 - Peel the banana, cut it in half and put it in a plastic bag, then roll it thin.

- Dip bananas in batter, and deep fry until bananas are slightly puffy.

- Take it out, continue to dip it in batter and fry a second time to make the banana more crispy.

- Serve your fried bananas as soon as possible, or with a side of coconut or vanilla ice cream. VNS
