Don’t like to eat overripe (and sometimes very mushy) bananas? Turn them into banana fritters! Banana Fritters is better known as Cucur Kodok or Cokodok in Malaysia. Some recipes for the banana fritters uses some coconut and some uses less flour. Nevertheless, banana is definitely the key ingredient and here’s my version!
