Servings 6 people


  • 320 g bananas +/- 3 bananas
  • 60 g wheat or all-purpose flour
  • 60 g corn flour
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon can be replaced with white/brown/coconut sugar for added sweetness
  • 500 ml cooking oil depends on size of the pot


  • Mash the bananas in a bowl.
  • Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well. The batter will still be mushy so don't worry.
  • Heat oil on medium to high preferably in a small pot or wok. The batter has to be covered in at least 3/4 oil.
  • Drop 1 tbsp of batter in oil to check if it's at frying temperature. It should bubble immediately. Do not overcrowd the pot.
  • With a spoon or chopstick, try to mould it into a ball. It's OK if it's not perfect.
  • Constantly turn the batter to ensure they are fried evenly. Keep on frying till they're golden brown.
  • Transfer the Cekodok onto a plate lined with kitchen towel.
