300. Cekodok Pisang Pisang

My family and I called this bananas 'Pisang Pisang'. I asked hubby again when he brought them home, he too and again said it is called 'Pisang Pisang'. I was just wondering if there is another name for it :p
It is sweet and smells nice and I like it. I even ate them with my ice cream. But too long (about 2 days) on the table some of the banana's (as you can see in the picture) skin turned brownish.

So to avoid them to turning too brownish and 'un eatable', I make some 'Cekodok Pisang'. I am actually out of practice doing this. It has been quite a while since I last make 'Cekodok Pisang'. It seemed and sound simple but I was soon to discover it was not so....

Pisang Pisang


So far so good...


as I began to slice the bananas into a bowl and pour in some plain flour, add a pinch of salt, a tablespoon of sugar, a full teaspoon of Baking Powder and gradually adding plain water to it to make a dough.

Picking up the dough from the side of the bowl with a tablespoon, I dropped it into a pan with hot cooking oil, continously doing so until the pan is full of droplets of 'Cekodok' dough.

But I wasn't satisfied with the result.

See...


Okay fine, the taste was as good as I want it to be but the shape of the 'Cekodok Pisang' weren't as round as I want them to be!

I asked myself what went wrong. I thought maybe I didn't leave the dough to stand for a certain time and let the baking powder work on it before cooking.

I decided not to finish frying the whole dough (even when Aya kept asking for more he he) but let it stand for an hour or so before continue frying.

And this time my 'Cekodok Pisang' looked like this :) (*wide smile*)



A couple of minutes ago I read in a blog, (click on blog to view) the lady used her 5 fingers to drop the 'Cekodok' dough into the frying pan :)

Enjoy!


Cheerio.

Sama-sama Lady of Leisure :)
Cekodok pisang ni sedap jikalau makan selepas digoreng dan masih panas kan? :)

Kekadang taruh sebiji telor jikalau nak lebih enak. Saya sengaja tak letak sebab kehabisan telor dan malas nak gi beli ari tu. Tapi masih sedap jugak he he...

Salam sayang :)

Salam rosa :)
A'ah dah biasa potong pisang macam tu, supaya senang nak lenyek dengan sudu nanti. Takpe janji pisang kenak lenyek he he...

Mungkin kalau adunan dibuat lebih keras lagi senang pakai jari kan? Lain kali saya nak cuba!

Ceria selalu :)
