Ingredients

  1. 20z banana blossoms in brine 

  2. frying oil

Flour Mixture

  1. 1 cup all-purpose flour

  2. 1/2 teaspoon salt

  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons crushed nori

Batter

  1. 1 cup flour

  2. 1/2 teaspoon salt

  3. 1 pinch turmeric

  4. 2 tablespoon pickle juice

  5. 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  6. 1/2 cup sparkling water or beer of choice

Instructions

  1. Rinse and drain the banana blossoms. 

  2. In separate bowls, combine the ingredients for the flour mixture and whisk together the ingredients for the batter.

  3. In a pot or wok, heat the frying oil. You'll want enough so that the battered banana blossoms can swim in the oil but make sure you leave enough space in the pot/wok so that it doesn't spill over.

  4. Coat the banana blossoms in the flour mixture. Then dip them in the batter. Carefully lower them in the oil. Let them fry for about 4-5 minutes until golden brown, flipping them once. 

  5. Transfer the fried banana blossoms onto a kitchen paper to remove excess oil. Serve with tartar sauce or fries, for example. Add fresh dill on top and squeeze with lemon juice.
