Poppy seeds are highly nutritious, and less allergenic than many other seeds and nuts.Poppy seeds are believed to have potential source of anti-cancer drugs.Mostly muffin ,bagel and bread sold here in US do sprinkle with poppy seeds.Recently I bought a small bottle of poppy seeds for baking but hardy use it..When I decided to make some banana fritter from over riped banana,I think adding poppy seeds into the batter will enhance the flavor and texture of the fritter .Something different for a change,I guess.Not just plain banana fritter but with poppy seeds!!
4-5 medium size overripe banana,peeled and mashed
3/4 cup self-raising flour,sift
1/4 cup rice flour,sift
1/4 baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 dash salt
1 tbsp poppy seed
enough oil for deep frying
1:Sifted flour ,baking powder and salt in a medium mixing bowl.Add in mashed banana and sugar.Use spatula to mix all ingredients well combine.Stir in poppy seed in the batter.
2:Heat clean oil in frying pan or frying (do not use non-stick pan) at medium heat.Use tablespoon to dip into the oil before scoop the batter into the hot oil for frying.Repeat the same procedure until it's cover the whole fryer.Do not over lap the batter onto the fryer.Flip the fritter to fry until golden brown.
3:Remove cooked fritter into paper-towel liner to absorb the excess oil before serve warm..
