African Banana Fritters
Fritter is a name applied to a wide variety of fried food. These fritters consist of a portion of batter made of flour or bread which is filled with bits and pieces of meat or vegetables or fruits. Some are crispy and some are soft, they can be sweet or savory, depending on what kind of fritter you are preparing. Fritters are made all over the world with different names like Bhajji, cakes, pakoda etc.
