Gulo Gulo and Maruya

Gulo gulo in Filipino means messy. It is also the favorite snack my
Lola Angge used to cook for dad and his siblings. The same way to
cook Maruya but using unripe banana instead.

In cooking Maruya, the ripe banana slices are arranged like a fan
or formed in a square, coated with a batter of flour and water then
fried. Dipped in sugar before serving.

Gulo gulo as the name implies is cooked randomly. Thin slices
of unripe banana (preferably saba) is coated with batter then fried
without arranging.

Gulo gulo

Maruya and gulo-gulo how I miss both of these ! It's been eternity since I had these oh, this is sooo making me homesick. My grandma used to make this as an after school snack for us. She called gulo-gulo kalingking, I have no idea where the name came from but I couldn't care less, everytime I see this served on a platter covered in banana leaf, hot and waiting for us to dig in, all I can think of was heaven. I miss this and my grandma really badly.

oooooh, I love banana fritters. We have a lot of that everywhere in Malaysia. But here I have to make it each time I want to eat them. Lovely pictures you took.
