Cut each banana into 2 cm widths. Peel and drop each piece into a saucepan of hot oil. Cook until they begin to turn brown. Remove and while hot, squash the flesh flat, between 2 pieces of brown paper. Then fry one more time. Drain and sprinkle with salt before serving.
Thin slices of banana can also be double fried for a more regular look.
