What is Maruya
Maruya are banana fritters usually with ‘Saba’ banana local to Philippines, coated with batter and fried until golden. It’s sprinkled with more sugar to give more sweetness. You can choose your favourite toppings to go with it of course!
Let’s talk about ingredients
With this recipe, because I live in London and I don’t have access to saba I used plantain instead. Alternatively if you don’t have access to plantain you can use Cavendish banana (these are the ones you buy from your local shop, its long and yellow when ripe) too but try and buy some that is still a little so that it will hold. It should still be a little sweet. Banana varieties
