Indonesia have around 5,350 traditional recipes, with 30 of them are considered as the most important.Indonesian cuisine varies greatly by region and has many different influences.Some popular Indonesian dishes such as nasi goreng, gado-gado,sate and soto are ubiquitous in the country and considered as national dishes.Today, some popular dishes that originated in Indonesia are now common across much of Southeast Asia. Indonesian dishes such as satay, beef rendang, and sambal are also favoured in Malaysia and Singapore. Soy-based dishes of tofu and tempe, are also very popular Indonesian cuisine,however this cuisine is quite a unknown cuisine for me. When i was planning my recipe choices for this month's long blogging marathon with cuisines all around the world starting with alphabets, i dont want to stick to the famous Italian cuisine for the alphabet 'I'. Since i want to explore this Indonesian cuisine, i started searching for an interesting recipe and finally i ended up with this dangerously addictive Indonesian style fried bananas. Immediately i got hooked to this recipe and the author of this space shares many authentic Indonesian dishes with her beautiful clicks. This dish is quite a simple evening snacks, one cant stop just munching these super crispy fried bananas, they are dangerously addictive.The author of Daily Cooking Quest says that this Pisang Goreng  is one among the Indonesian most favourite food. She also says that traditionally Indonesian bananas are used for making this fritters, since Indonesian bananas are not that much easily available in other countries, any bananas available in your place can works awesome too for making this fried bananas.

The dish is very inviting though I am still intrigued how this is going to taste. I happened to notice this dish in central or south American nations as well.
