Talétalé or banana fritters
This is an Ivorian recipe but banana beignets or fritters are eaten in different African countries, with or without hot pepper sauce, hot or cold.
They are firmer than European beignets or fritters but they are very tasty and children love them.
- 1 kg ripe dessert bananas
- flour (wheat or corn)
- granulated sugar
- frying oil
- 1 pinch salt
Peel the bananas and knead them in a large bowl
Add the flour, a little sugar (according to your taste because the banana is naturally sweet) and a pinch of salt to obtain a firm but not too heavy dough that will not sink when fried.
Heat the oil and test it with 1 beignet: the beignet must float
Fry the beignets until they are golden
Keep a close eye to it as the beignets are fry very quickly
Serve hot or cold, with or without hot pepper sauce
