Kuih kodok is Malaysian fried mashed banana fritter. This homemade recipe is easy to make, with a twist to make the kuih kodok especially soft, crispy and delicious!
While I like Malaysian goreng pisang, I love kuih kodok, or Malaysian fried mashed banana fritters.
Kuih kodok are basically overripe bananas, all mashed up and mix with flour, sugar, and deep fried to golden nuggets.
They are usually round in shape but with uneven surface, hence the name kodok, meaning toad in Malay language.
While authentic kuih kodok recipe doesn’t call for eggs, my recipe include an egg.
This is my personal preference and it’s no way authentic.
You may omit the egg in the recipe if you want to make traditional Malay-style kuih kodok.
In Malaysia, pisang awak (with black seeds inside the bananas) are often used for kuih kodok.
According to my late grandmother, pisang awak is the best banana for deep frying.
I used regular Dole bananas commonly found in the United States and they turned out fantastic.
If you are in Malaysia, please use pisang awak if you can find them.

This kuih kodok recipe is not authentic because I added an egg, which is my late mother’s recipe. Omit the egg if you want traditional Malay kuih kodok. I personally love the addition of an egg in the batter.
If you are in Malaysia, please use pisang awak if you can find it.
