Directions – Fried Bammies

Cut each Bammy into four equal pieces. If you are using mini Bammies, there is no need to cut them.

You should have 8 equal pieces of Bammy or 8 Mini Bammies.

Soak Bammy pieces in salt water or coconut milk. Soak Bammy overnight or for a couple hours before frying. You soak the Bammies to give it flavor and also to ensure it’s not too oily when fried.

Heat enough oil to cover Bammies in a large Dutch Pot or Frying Pot.

Fry Bammies until they are golden brown or until you are able to stick a fork in the center of the Bammy.

Remove Bammies and place on grease paper. If Bammies were soaked properly you will not need grease paper.
