Maruya (Saba Banana Fritters)

My kids like this a LOT! I’m glad that they also like the food that I love as a kid , I try to recreate some of it in my kitchen as best I can, some are easy, some are not…good thing this fritter is very easy and quick to make because my kids ask me to make it often.

Maruya  is simply saba (a type of plaintain) banana fritters.  This is one of my favorite childhood eats; it’s cooked just like pancakes but it has more saba bananas than batter in it. I like it to roll it in cinnamon-sugar while it still hot, this is so good as an afternoon snack or even for breakfast.

I don’t use exact measurements when making maruya,  I just make sure that the batter is thicker than pancake in consistency and should coat the bananas thickly. I like cinnamon so I added it to the batter and sugar for coating, you may omit it if you don’t like cinnamon but I’m telling you, it’s good for your health! 🙂
