Kueh Kodok (Mashed Banana Fritters) 炸香蕉球

Kueh Kodok or Cekodok or cucur is a delicious Malay kueh (bite size snack). It is very common in Malaysia and Brunei. It it sell by small hakwer vendor around the street corner or pasar malam (night market) or pasar tani (weekend market). It is a simple kueh that is deep fried with only a few ingredients. The main ingredient is banana. The banana is mash and  mix with flour, brown sugar and a pinch of salt, then it is deep fried into this yummy fritters.

Kueh Kodok 或 Cekodok 或 cucur 是种传统的马来糕点, 在马来西亚和文莱很普遍。在街边小巷或pasar malam可找到小贩在卖。但是我没吃过哦!要谢谢FionJoceline,如果不是她们的分享我也吃不到这美味的传统糕点。不同的地区叫法不同。Kueh Kodok是炸的糕点 做法简单,成品超好吃呢!!外皮带酥,内松和柔软,炸出来的颜色较黑褐色!

黑褐色的Kueh Cekodok外貌一般,味道可不一般。
炸 好了, 就把老幺叫来,想让他尝尝后在借我他的小拇指。可是他用很怪的眼神看着这糕说;妈咪,这是什么?像‘BOM'。我说你咬一口,看看?他不想试但是还是咬了一口。他脸上露出了好好吃的神情。Yeah!! 就是好吃!

Kueh Kodok is a simple but delicious street snack. It might not look that appealing but it taste really delicious. It is crispy outside, soft and spongy inside  ^_^

I offer my youngest a bite, he was kind of looking at the kueh in a funny way. He said 'Mum, this look like a 'BOMB'...will it explode if i bite it :@  I insisted that he give it a bite and he did. He smile after having the first bite. He offer me his thumb up after sampling this kueh kodok.

I am taking a picture and and and Can you see someone is trying to have another piece of the kueh kodok.... I guess you know who he was...(my youngest)

She sent me a pack of this Korean mochi bread premix and ask me to try. Thanks to LK for sending me the pack of Korean mochi bread premix.

I have 2 recipes with me when i wanted to try out, which i can't decided which to use. In the end i decided to use the smaller portion recipe. I was thinking if it doesn't turn out well, as least i did not waste too much ingredients :p The recipe i am using is from a fb friend, Pheony. She is a great baker. All her cakes,
