  • 1 whole banana blossom
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 small red bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup cooking oil for frying


  • Clean the banana blossom and finely chop. See the tips above on how to clean them.
  • Add 1 tbsp of salt to the banana blossom and let it stand for 5 minutes. Squeeze it by hand to remove excess liquid. It should now be a little bit soft.
  • In a bowl, combine the banana blossom, onion, garlic, pepper, red bell pepper, flour and egg. Mix until well combined.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat, add the cooking oil. Scoop the banana blossom mixture and pan-fry for 3-5 minutes on each side or until brown. Remove from the pan, drain excess oil with paper towel.
  • Serve with hot steamed rice and ketchup for dipping sauce.
