Saging Pinaypay a childhood favorite and one ultimate comfort food. We usually get this treat after having our afternoon nap time before we go outside to play with our friends in the streets of our village.
It was the first time that I introduce one of my favorites to V and I’m such a proud Mama when he enjoyed 3 pinaypay all to himself that is after making sure he left one piece for his Dad.
Saging (banana) Pinaypay (to fan out, paypay is fan). Slice bananas thinly and spread it out like a fan dip on your pancake batter and fry. Sprinkle with some sugar and serve.
When my husband saw the photo I posted on facebook he called up to ask what I prepared. Described pinaypay as the saba banana dip in a pancake batter and pan fried. He just replied that they call it by a different name in Manila, it is called Maruya.
Saging Saba has been a staple in our household ever since I got pregnant. It’s one of my go to food when I can’t eat anything. I eat it boiled, fried, stewed, or braised in sugar. It’s simple delicious and nutritious.
