The Samoan panikeke is a relative of the fritter or doughnut. Much like doughnuts, they are prepared by making a batter and cooking globules of that batter inside oil. These are a traditional Samoan fritter and go well with jams, butter, Nutella, and powdered sugar. They can be a dessert, a snack, or even a breakfast food. They’re extremely easy to make so you won’t have any problems getting them to taste just right. Just make sure not to over indulge.
Bananas are instant mood lifters. Apart from making you cheerful, the soluble and insoluble fiber content in banana helps in keeping your gut healthy.
