Top tip for making Banana fritters
When deep frying choose a pan that’s larger than the burner you are cooking on and don’t fill more than half full with oil. If you have a thermometer heat the oil to 180°C, otherwise place a cube of bread in the oil and if it turns golden brown in 45 secs the oil is ready.
