Ever over estimated the size of the pumpkin you needed? Have some left over pumpkin? Here’s something extra special to serve to the kids – and it’s a favorite with the grown ups too 😉
Red pumpkin puree-½ cup
Refined flour -1½ cups
Baking soda-¼ teaspoon
Powdered sugar-2 tablespoons
Vanilla essence-1 teaspoon
Oil to deep fry
Chocolate sauce as required
Put refined flour in a large mixing bowl, add cornstarch, baking soda, sugar, vanilla essence, pumpkin puree and sufficient milk and whisk well to make a thick batter. Rest the batter for a few minutes.
Heat sufficient oil in a deep frying pan.
Peel and cut bananas into thick diagonal slices. Dip each slice well in the batter, shake off excess batter and slide into hot oil and deep fry till golden. Drain on absorbent paper.
Arrange them on a serving plate, sprinkle little powdered sugar and drizzle chocolate sauce and serve hot.
