Heat oil and once the oil is hot drop the rolled poories and let it fry. It will take a few seconds to fry both sides. Keep pouring oil over the top and lightly press the frying poories for it to swell. Make sure to stay back as the oil will spit. Remove the banana poories with a spoon and drain on a paper towel.
