Banana Pillows (Sri Lankan Style)

December 22, 2018
Banana Pillows are perfect for when you need to satisfy a quick sweet craving. Sweet and delicious. Yummy to the very last bite. These banana pillows are deep fried and made of a portion of batter filled with overripe banana. These are often served with any sugar syrup, treacle, maple syrup or sprinkled powdered sugar. I usually like it sprinkled with powdered sugar and a dash of caramel syrup.


3 large overripe bananas (approx 300g)
1 1/2 Cup all purpose flour (approx 200g)
2 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Vegetable oil for deep frying


  1. In a bowl, Mash the bananas using a fork.
  2. Add the flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt. Mix well until a smooth batter is formed. The batter should be a quite runny batter. 
  3. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile heat oil in a pan. 
  4. When the oil is hot, scoop an amount of batter into the oil. 
  5. Splash oil on to the surface and keep flipping them to fry them evenly over medium heat. (Make sure to fry them in medium heat)
  6. Once they are golden in colour, drain oil and transfer them to paper towel. 
  7. While it is hot coat with any sugar syrup, treacle, maple syrup or sprinkle powdered sugar. 
  8. Serve hot! Enjoy!
