Maruya (Banana Fritters) Recipe

Maruya or Banana Fritters is one of my favorite snacks especially when I was in grade school. Every afternoon, the stores beside our school sell different snacks made from banana, cassava and sweet potato. I always buy banana cue or maruya. Having the taste of a pancake with a sweetness of banana, Maruya can make a simple yet yummy snack.

Maruya is basically made of ripe (or overripe) banana, flour, egg and baking powder. In some maruya recipe, banana is cut lengthwise, dipped in a batter and fried. In my version of Maruya, I prefer mashing the overripe banana and mix with other ingredients. I like its texture more than with banana slices. So let’s start cooking our Maruya!

Ingredients

  • 6 pcs. Ripe banana (mashed)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh milk (evaporated milk or water)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla extract

Procedure

  1. Mash banana. Add sugar. Mix well.
  2. Combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  3. Fold in to the banana mixture.
  4. Add milk, vanilla extract and beaten egg. Mix well.
  5. In a frying pan, heat oil. Scoop a spoonful of banana mixture and fry until golden brown.
  6. Remove from the pan and put in paper towels to remove excess oil. Sprinkle with sugar.
  7.  Serve and enjoy!
