Pisang Molen ( Banana on the blanket)

I suppose i can call this banana strudel roll,but its Indonesian version.

We usually find this snack so easy in Jakarta, but not here :( Lucky i found the recipe a while ago when i browsing via and wrote it on my book, but I'm sorry for the creator of the recipe not to mention your name because i forgot which site or blog i got the recipe from. I just forgot thing easily now, maybe because i haven't got enough rest or sleep lately...
hopping that i can still concentrate on my study, if i go back to University.

I think you can bake this, if you don't like fried food, just like pie.

Pisang Molen ( Banana on the blanket)
  • 6 bananas ( i used 2 big one) = Pisang nangka?
  • Deep Oil to fry
  • 350 plain flour
  • 50 gr caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 125 gr margarine
  • 75 ml water ( i used half of the recipe with the same amount of water)

Cut each banana into half and cut half again (1:4)

  1. Mix the flour, vanilla, sugar and salt, add margarine.
  2. Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Make a well in the centre. Add water. Mix with until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more water if required. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth.
  4. Roll out the pastry ,cut into 3 cm length ( ribbon size), roll the pastry around banana until covered ( look at the pictures).
  5. Heat the oil on a deep fry pan. and fry the " pisang molen" until golden brown.
  6. Drain on a paper towel, Serve with a cup of tea on a cold day.

Cavendish and williams bananas are the best varieties for cooking.

Ti, big bananas? Were they plantains? That's what North American calls for pisang tanduk.
