Fried Bananas (Kluai Khaek)

Fried Bananas (Kluai Khaek)

Many varieties of banana are grown in Thailand, and the Thai often cook them, grilling, boiling, or frying the fruit. For this simple dish, small, firm bananas are preferred. The large supermarket banana doesn't work well for this dish, because it tends to fall apart when heated. See the recipe for Fried Bananas »Christopher Hirsheimer
