    A visit to Kenya was the catalyst for this dish. Potatoes aren't that common in Kenya but bananas are.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 5 small unripe (green) bananas
    • oil for frying
    • salt to taste

    Directions
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Peel the bananas using a knife, as they are not ripe and will not peel like a yellow banana. Slice into chips.
    2. Heat the oil in a heavy deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Place the banana chips into the hot oil, and fry until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oil, and drain on kitchen roll. Pat off the excess oil, and season with salt. Serve immediately.

    I had made banana fries before I found this posting, and I want to add that for people who must monitor their blood glucose, green bananas have resistant starch which is less likely to elevate bg. I have type 2 diabetes, and I have eaten as many as three bananas prepared this way - all within 2 or 3 hours' time, and never suffered a spike in blood glucose. They are delicious and healthy!  -  19 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Yum, Amazing! With a little ketchup, you couldn't tell the difference! Be sure to use small green bananas, and cut them really thin!!  -  25 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I fried these in olive oil to make them even more healthy. Thanks for sharing your recipe!  -  12 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
