Fried Banana Balls during Iftar In Ramadan

How about Fried Banana Balls for Iftar In Ramadan?

Banana, a native fruit of South East Asia, is our favorite. It is one of the 6 fruits mentioned in the Quran. Allah says in the Quran (with English translations) “And (banana) trees layered with fruit” (Quran 56:29). Banana has a lot of great benefits. It has an excellent dietary source of potassium and other minerals that help our body to recover after long hours of fasting. It is also has a fair amount of fiber to help with the digestive system.
