Fried Banana Fritter (Kuih Kodok)

Fried Banana Fritter or Kuih Kodok in Malay is a common street food in Malaysia. I had not eaten this for 9 years since I immigrated to Canada. I missed it so much that I decided to make it at home despite that I do not like deep frying in my kitchen.


The Fried Banana Fritter is soft and sweet and full of banana flavour. It is best eaten warm. I got the recipe from Kuali but made some adjustment to it as I find that the recipe in Kuali has too much salt in it which makes the banana fritter more savory than sweet. I prefer it to be sweet.



  • 150g (net weight) ripe bananas (about 1 large banana)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 5 tablespoons self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon Quaker oats (I subtitituted with 1 teaspoon of ground flax seed)
  • a pinch of baking soda

    my mom always fries outside–in like… i think it is an electric wok? i never knew why but now that my kitchen floor is greasy, i understand!

      what dose it mean to fry “outside in” i have never heard of that.

        i think she meant using the electric wok outside of the ‘house’. so the grease doesnt mess the walls and floors.
