Pisang Goreng Gembung (Fried Banana)

I got this recipe many years ago from a local TV show called ' Rahasia Dapur" and it's been kept in my cooking notebook for years. I finally decided to give it a try since my hubby loves to buy bananas home recently.  If you are a banana lover you'll love this snack as it's very different from most of fried bananas found in South East Asia countries. The texture of cashew nuts match just well to create a crunchy succulent fried bananas. Here is the recipe:

Pisang Goreng Gembung

400 g ripe bananas
50 g roughly chopped toasted cashew nuts
200 g all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
50 g margarine
1 egg
3 tbsp water
Some egg white for sealing
For dusting:
2 tbsp icing sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.  Add in margarine, egg and water, mix well, set aside.
Cut bananas into 3 pieces ( around 4 cm each).
Roll the dough into a rectangular shape with 1/2 cm thick.  Cut the dough into 6x10 cm rectangular shape.
Place a piece of bananas on each dough following by some chopped cashew nuts. Brush some egg white on the 4 edges of the dough. Fold the dough to half and seal it by pressing the edge with a fork.
Deep fry the bananas till golden brown, leave them cool slightly.

Mix well the icing sugar and cinnamon powder.  Dust the fried bananas with the mixture, serve warm.
