So this is a Malaysian recipe called Jemput-Jemput Pisang.  Its basically fried mashed bananas balls.

4 ripe mashed bananas
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
oil for frying

Combine all ingredients (except oil of course) so they are mixed well. Heat oil and test with water.  When oil snaps at you, its ready!  Drop half spoonfuls of mixture in oil using spoons sitting in water.  It may not look like much on the spoon, but the dough will expand while frying.  Fry til golden brown and sprinkle with powder sugar!!
