Jemput-Jemput Pisang

This is a Malaysian snack called Jemput-Jemput Pisang which I had munched as many as I could during my childhood and have completely forgotten about . When I was in India my mother in-law used to make these for me.Two days back I saw the update in my friend Viki's blog on Vaazhai Pazha Paniyaaram. Oh my God how could I have forgotten the snack of my childhood. My another friend Priya's Cucur Kodok, have post her version of the theses yummy banana fritters too.There's varies versions in preparing these yummy crispy banana balls and this my version just as I used to have back in my childhood days.

1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 brown sugar
1.5 cup all purpose flour

Preparation Methods:
Sift the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder into a medium bowl.In a separate bowl, mash together the bananas,egg and sugar.
