    Serves: 6 

    • 5 small unripe (green) bananas
    • oil for frying
    • salt to taste

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Peel the bananas using a knife, as they are not ripe and will not peel like a yellow banana. Slice into chips.
    2. Heat the oil in a heavy deep frying pan over medium-high heat. If you have a deep-fryer, heat the oil to 190 degrees C. Place the banana chips into the hot oil, and fry until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oil, and drain on kitchen paper. Pat off the excess oil, and season with salt. Serve immediately.

    I didn't tell my husband these were bananas and he ate the whole plate of fries! Mistake on my part, an hour later when I told him what they were, he became a little testy! Just goes to show ya, it's mostly psychological with food. I fried these in olive oil to make them even more healthy. Thanks for sharing your recipe!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Yummy! We loved these fries - especially the kids. I fried them in peanut oil and sprinkled with salt. Then, served them with mayonaise for dipping. Very different and a nice change of pace from potato fries.  -  29 Sep 2008
