Pisang Coklat Keju, also known as Fried Choco Banana Spring Rolls, is a delicious and popular Indonesian dessert. It combines the sweetness of ripe bananas, the richness of chocolate, and the savory flavor of cheese, all wrapped in a crispy spring roll wrapper and deep-fried to perfection.
To make Pisang Coklat Keju, you’ll need ripe bananas, chocolate bars or chocolate chips, shredded cheese (usually cheddar or mozzarella), spring roll wrappers, and oil for frying.
Here’s a step-by-step description of how to prepare this delightful dessert:
Start by peeling and slicing the bananas into long, thin strips. It’s recommended to use ripe bananas as they are sweeter and easier to handle.
Lay out a spring roll wrapper on a clean surface. Place a banana strip on one corner of the wrapper, leaving some space at the edges.
Next, add a few pieces of chocolate and a sprinkle of shredded cheese on top of the banana strip. The amount of chocolate and cheese can be adjusted according to your preference.
Begin rolling the spring roll by folding the corner with the filling over the banana strip. Continue rolling tightly until you reach the center of the wrapper.
Fold the left and right corners of the wrapper inward to seal the sides, then continue rolling until you reach the end of the wrapper. You can moisten the edges of the wrapper with a little water to help seal it completely.
Repeat the process with the remaining bananas, chocolate, and cheese until you have used up all the ingredients.
Heat oil in a deep pan or fryer to about 350°F (175°C). Carefully place the prepared Pisang Coklat Keju into the hot oil and fry until they turn golden brown and crispy. This usually takes around 3-4 minutes.
Once fried, remove the spring rolls from the oil using a slotted spoon or tongs and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain off any excess oil.
Pisang Coklat Keju can be enjoyed both warm and cold. Serve them as is or with a scoop of ice cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce or caramel for an extra indulgence.
These Fried Choco Banana Spring Rolls are a delightful combination of flavors and textures, with the sweetness of the bananas, the gooeyness of the melted chocolate, and the savory hint from the cheese. They make for a scrumptious dessert that is sure to be enjoyed by people of all ages.
