Sriracha Banana Fritters

Number of Portions


- For the fritters
- 175 grams plain flour
- 125 grams cornflour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 400 ml sparkling water
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tsp Schwartz Sriracha Seasoning
- 10 bananas, peeled and cut into 5 chunks each
- Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
- For the caramel
- 500 grams caster sugar
- 100 ml water
- 3 tbsp sesame seeds
- To serve
- Vanilla ice cream


For the fritters, sift the flour, cornflour and baking powder together into a bowl, then stir in the water, sesame oil and Sriracha seasoning until a smooth batter is formed.

Add the banana pieces and gently mix until completely coated in batter.

Half-fill a deep, heavy-bottomed saucepan with vegetable oil and heat up.

Carefully place the bananas into the oil and deep-fry until golden brown, then remove with a slotted spoon and drain onto paper towels.

For the caramel, place the sugar, water and sesame seeds into a saucepan over a low heat and cook until all of the sugar has melted. Increase the heat to bring to the boil and continue cooking, without stirring, until the mixture becomes a light caramel colour.

Remove the caramel from the heat and one at a time, dip the banana fritters into the hot caramel turning each fritter over with a fork to coat all over.

Then remove immediately and plunge into a bowl of iced water. Remove the fritter from the water and leave to drain on a wire rack while you dip the remaining fritters.

To serve, place the fritters onto plates and place a scoop of vanilla ice cream alongside it.
