Want to cook fried banana? Here's how?
Date: September 19, 2022
Cooking is a talent and a skills to learn. I always says I am not good in cooking but I can cook in some ways.
I and my sibling were grown where our parents are cooking banana cue to be sold in the school or within the Barangay. In short, selling banana cue is one of there source of income before because my parents don't have a regular job.
My father will be the one to cook it and my mother will be the one to sell it. As we grow, our mother will cook it and I or my younger siblings will do the selling.
I still remember that sometimes I felt shy before but my mother will always encourage me by saying, "why you feel shy? you did not steal it." So everytime I will bring that little basin with banana cue inside I will always put in mind that i shouldn't be shy because we never steal it and we are doing it for our own good.
Almost all of us, me and my siblings experienced selling banana cue in our Barangay. As we walked along the way, we will shout, "Saging init pa" (Banana cue, it's still hot).
Those experience help us to have confidence and learn the value of every peso. In those moments we understand how difficult to find money. We also learned to save money in that time. If we could sell worth 50.00($1) my mother will give us 10% of it. It means we will have 5.oo and we will put it in our piggy bank.
One day, we have a ripe banana and I crave for fried banana or banana cue. I checked our oil and it's just little bot enough to cook a whole banana. I checked our brown sugar and we have a lot. My cravings really push me to cook. I ask myself if I still know how to do it. We never cooked before for selling but we are trying to cook if we wanted to eat some and we are trying to imitate how our parents do it.
I still pursue cooking but this time I cut the banana in half because I have limited oil to make sure it will be cooked.
Step 1. Heat the pan first.
Step 2. Add oil and make it hot.
Step 3. Add or sprinkle enough sugar. I just estimate it. Don't put the sugar in one place but scattered it evenly. Wait until the sugar will go up.
Step 4. Put the banana. Never touch it for a while, just let the banana absorb the sugar and then turn it on the other side. Mix or turn upside down slowly until the whole banana turns red and it is done.
Step 5. Remove and drain. Then ready to serve.
After cooking, I felt so happy because I was able to cook fried banana or banana cue. My husband was happy to found it in the table when he got home from work and then he asked for some coffee to be paired with it and we have our home made merienda.
It is easy, right? Try to cook banana cue at home.
I hope you learn some simple steps how to cook banana cue today. Anyway I am so happy because Rusty or the @TheRandomRewarder gave a warm welcome for me the last time I posted my blog as coming back after a long time of being absent here. Thank you Rusty. Hopefully BCH will pump and BCH holder would be happy.
That's all for today and thank you so much for reading.
