Banana Cue

Banana cue is simply saba (cooking banana, similar to plaintains), rolled in brown sugar and then deep fried. The hot oil caramelizes the sugar, giving the banana cue an ooey-gooey, (careful not to bite into it while its still hot!) crunchy quality.

I remember coming home from school and my mum would have a plateful of piping hot banana cues sitting on the counter waiting for us to devour. Yours looks delicious.

Also try searching some Asian markets. Some Filipino companies (try Jufran corp.) have been making their own variey of banana ketchup for a while.
