Deep Fried Banana Fritters Recipe (Kluai Khaek / Kluai Thot)

Kluai Kaek (also known as Kluai Thot) is a popular Thai sweet street food snack or dessert. In south-east Asian, neighbouring countries such as Malaysian and Indonesia recognise it as ‘Pisang Goreng’ and it’s similar to the Vietnamese dish ‘Chuoi Chien’. Meanwhile in the west, this cuisine would be likened to banana fritters or Thai style fried bananas.

Made with a mix of rice and tapioca flour, shredded coconut, light seasonings and of course short and dense Thai bananas, Kluai Khaek is simple to make but delicious to taste. Despite Thai bananas being ideal to make this recipe as authentic as it comes in Thailand, regular common bananas are fine, cooking may just have to be adjusted and monitored to the softer and more delicate texture.

In Thailand, Kluai Khaek is commonly served warm as a street food in ready to eat bags either as a snack or dessert. In recent years, this dish has been enjoyed more as a dessert with local restaurants and vendors serving it with ice cream, sweet sauces, whipped cream or honey; which has been appealing to tourist taste buds.
