1 Tbs caster sugar
1 tsp toasted cumin seeds
2 tsp black sesame seeds

1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbs fresh lime juice

1 Slice the bananas into rounds.

2 Pour the flour into bowl, add the salt, sugar, cumin and sesame seeds.

3 Whisk in the egg yolk with enough ginger beer to make a smooth batter.

4 Heat a fry pan and cover with a film of canola oil 2cm deep. Dip the slices of banana into the batter and shallow fry, turning over once golden. Repeat in batches, placing on paper towels in between.
