Kuih Kodok/ Cekodok Recipe

Two years ago, around end of August, my Dayre account was being exposed to the whole Dayre community by being the editor’s pick for that particular period. My number of readers surged suddenly as the effect from the editor’s pick. It was a surreal moment for me, never I ever thought that I can be an editor’s pick. The editor was very kind with his/ her words in the description column. Below was how the editor’s describe about my posts, and I was still known as Taste of Malaysia.

To thank my readers, I posted my all time favourite snack kuih kodok recipe. Kuih kodok or sometimes also known as cekodok is basically a mash banana fritters. It is a Malaysian snacks that you can easily get by the road side stalls. It makes a good snacks for tea time too.

The key to making a good kuih kodok is to make used of very ripen bananas. The riper it is, the sweeter the banana. Therefore, should you have any over ripen bananas at home, do not throw them away. Use them to make this simple and delicious kuih kodok.

In Malaysia, the popular banana variety for making banana fritter, be it kuih kodok or goreng pisang, is the local pisang awak variety. Unfortunately, this banana variety is not available here in NZ. So I used Ecuador banana as a substitute. Bananas in NZ are usually imported from Ecuador or Philippines. Among the two, I prefer the Ecuador bananas as I find them to be sweeter, tastier and more fragrant too.

INGREDIENTS 

420g ripe bananas
2 – 3 tbsp caster sugar
3 tbsp white sesame seeds
3 tbsp desiccated coconut (OPTIONAL)

150g all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt

1 cup cooking oil for deep frying

1. Sieve all purpose flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Then add in sesame seeds and desiccated coconut, if using. Mix well and set aside.

2. Peel the bananas and cut it into smaller pieces and place it in a food processor. Mash the bananas using the food processor and add in sugar to mix well.

*You can use a fork to mash the bananas too if your bananas are very ripe and soft. 

*You can add more sugar, if your bananas are not very ripe. Or reduce sugar as according to your preference. Therefore, taste the mash bananas and add more sugar accordingly as needed.

3. Stir in the flour mixture into mash banana mixture. Combine well to form a sloppy batter.

4. Heat the oil in a wok over a medium heat. Using a dessert spoon, drop one spoonful of the batter into the hot oil. Fry until it is golden brown and drain well on paper towels.

*If you like a bigger fritter, you can use an eating spoon rather than dessert spoon.
