Banana Fritters or Maruya Recipe
Spread the love

Maruya Recipe involves a simple process. However, it requires patience.

One of the perks of being home base that I usually enjoy is food.

Since I don’t travel to go to any offices, I am also away from temptations such as high-end coffee and fast food meals. Also, the cheap thrills, such as street foods, are also easy to reach. So, whenever I crave for tokneneng, kikiam, fishballs, I’ll just go out and enjoy.

However, I used to miss one of my favorite cheapies… the maruya or banana fritters because no one from my neighbors sells them.

Banana fritters or maruya is a fried dessert. It is primarily composed of banana, which is usually plantain, and batter that is made from flour, milk, sugar, and egg.
