 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    Egg -- beaten
    3      tablespoons   Flour
    3      tablespoons   Cornstarch
    1      tablespoon    Water
    3      medium        Bananas -- (not too ripe)
                         Oil -- for deep-frying
                         === SYRUP ==
    1      tablespoon    Peanut oil
      1/2  cup           Sugar
    In a small bowl mix the beaten egg, flour, cornstarch and water to form a 
 smooth batter.  Slice the bananas into 1/2-inch-thick pieces and coat with 
 the batter.
    Deep-fry at 360 degrees for 20 seconds in two batches and remove and 
 drain.  Allow the oil to return to temperature and fry the slices, all at 
 once, a second time just until golden brown.
    While the slices are frying heat the oil and sugar in a small saucepan.  
 Cook on medium heat until the sugar dissolves and turns a very light golden 
    Coat the bananas in the syrup, then plunge them into a serving bowl of 
 cold water and ice cubes.  Serve at once so that the bananas are still hot 
 and the syrup crystalized.
    Use a fork or spoon to remove the banana slices from the water for each 
 serving.  This recipe serves 6 to 8 for dessert.
   Comments:  This dessert is quite spectacular.  Be careful with it; the 
 sugar syrup is very hot and will burn.
