There are versions of sweet banana treats all over Southeast Asia. Sometimes the bananas are fried in a batter until crisp, sometimes they’re cooked in oil or lightly grilled, sometimes they’re simmered in sweetened coconut milk. These fried bananas are meltingly lush, and they’re given an extra layer of flavor by a squeeze of lime juice. (Some friends like a little dusting of chile powder on top as well, for that hot-sweet-tart hit.) You can also serve them with tart-sweet mango or lime sorbet. They’re good for dessert, but almost better as a snack. Make plenty, for it’s hard to turn down second helpings.

Choose ripe bananas that are still firm. Cutting regular bananas crosswise mimics the size of the small sweet Southeast Asian bananas.Credit: “Excerpted from Burma: Rivers of Flavor by Naomi Duguid (Artisan Books). Copyright © 2012.”
