A simple recipe to get rid of your overripe bananas without wasting it! My first contribution to the STOP FOOD WASTE Campaign.

4 to 5 large ripe bananas
3 to 5 tbsp sugar (depends on the sweetness of your bananas)
1/3 cup milk
1 ½ cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Oil for deep frying

In a blender, blend the bananas, sugar and milk. Put into a bowl.

Gradually add in the flour that has been mixed with the baking powder. Mix well to make a very thick batter.

Heat oil in a wok. Using the tips of your fingers, drop in the dough, in the shape resembling golf balls. Cook on medium high heat (if the oil is not too hot, it will absorb the oil and your banana balls will be greasy. If the heat is too high, it will brown quickly on the outside and the inside could be uncooked.

Repeat the process until the dough is all used and serve hot with a cup of tea or coffee for a mid morning of afternoon tea snack.
