Ripe Banana fritters or pazhampori as we call in Kerala is a very famous and traditional snack. You will get to see this item even in small restaurants/hotels when you are in Kerala. Most people make this with maida. But here, I am making it with besan, which is more healthy.
Basic info about the recipe
Cuisine - South Indian
Serves - 3-4 people.
1. Ripe bananas - 2 nos
2. Besan/gram flour - 2 cups
3. Salt - a pinch
4. Sugar - 2 tsp
5. Turmeric powder - ½ tsp
6. Oil - for frying.
Method: Peel the bananas and cut into equal halves. Cut each half again into thin long pieces. You can cut each half into three. (Can make 6 pazhamporis with 1 large banana)
Make a batter with besan, salt, sugar and turmeric. The consistency should be that of dosa batter.
Heat oil in a kadhai. Dip each banana piece in the batter and fry both sides flipping in between till golden brown. ( when the oil is hot you can reduce the flame)
Take out the pazhamporis from the oil to a tissue or paper towel which will absorb the excess oil. Serve hot.
Note: To make it more crispy add a spoon of rice flour to the batter.
