Kuih Kodok

Kodok in malay means toad and i guessed the finished product is so ugly that the name is self explanatory. The only failure in making this recipe is that you might end up with burnt kuih. If this batter is baked in muffin tins then it will be called 'Banana muffins'. There is only one type of bananas that are readily available in the supermarkets here and this kuih is made only when i have overriped bananas in hand.

3 large overriped banana- mashed
1 Tbsp caster sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/4 cup chopped nuts(optional)
100g plain flour
oil for deep frying


Mix all the ingredients except the oil.

Using an ice cream scoop, slowly drop in batter into moderately hot oil. (Do not over crowd. The kuih kodok would float up when it is cooked)

Remove from oil on to cake rack to cool.

lily, u might be right too but literary kodok is toad. in ur case it might meant what u said.

Here we called them err...nt sure whether its cengkodok or cekodok instead of kuih kodok.

Hi Lily,
You have a really excellent food blog here. I have printed out heaps of your recipes and will try them out soon.

You may also be amused to know that I never could cook smooth steam eggs before, until I tried your recipe. It was the first time my steam egg turned out super-duper smooth.

Please keep up your good work. I am a huge fan already :)
