1 cup flour, sifted
1/4 tsp turmeric
3 tbsps unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup thin cream
3 tbsps brown sugar

1. Make caramel sauce. In a small pan, melt butter and stir in sugar, thin cream and vanilla over medium heat and bring to a slow boil. Stir ocassionally until syrup is thick. Set aside.
2. Place the flour, turmeric and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Whisk in a little bit of water until combined but not too much to avoid toughening the batter.
3. In a deep frying pan, heat some canola oil. When ready to fry, dip banana pieces in batter and fry for 1 minute per side. Turn and fry for another minute. Drain on paper towels, serve with ice cream and top with caramel sauce.
