My sis-in-law Aimee brought some yam or kamote and some banana (plantain) or as we call it Saging Na Saba. The day after my daughter's birthday we decided to fry some banana for a little snack before they head back to Anaheim. BANANAQUE or deep fried plantain coated with syrupy brown sugar. It's a very popular snack in the Philippines, and they are the most common street food too. Traditionally, these plantains are served on a bamboo skewer.

if you want to try this, here's what you will need:

vegetable oil for deep frying
ripe plantain bananas
bamboo skewer (optional)
brown  sugar

heat the oil in heavy skillet or pan. deep fry bananas for at least 4-5 min. sprinkle some brown sugar on bananas until the sugar melts and bananas are coated (like a sticky syrup) keep on turning the bananas. do not over cook. transfer on a platter or string bananas on a bamboo skewer at least 2 banana per stick.
if you want, sprinkle some powdered milk before serving to make more special.



  1. Yummy! I know because I have tasted it!

    I have been lusting after goreng pisang, the fried banana snack and this one looks just as good, if not better! :)
