Banana Fritters Aka Pazhampori

The name itself makes ever keralites mouth water. Bananas are abudantly available in kerala. In most of the keralite households I have seen that bananas are eaten after a meal. But 'A' and I don't enjoy to eat it raw. But if it's given as fritters , then we won't be having a count of how much we are eating. Each time 'A' visits home , amma used to make it. He called me from office and asked me to make it. Luckily I found plantains in the Indian store. Now I know what should I do to make him come home early from office :-) .

Recipe Source : My Own


In The Mix

Large ripe plantains - 3

All purpose flour – 1/2 cup

Milk – 1/2 cup

Water – 1/2 cup

Salt to taste

Sugar – 4 tsp (Depend upon your sugar needs)

Oil – Enough so the banana pieces are half submerged in it when frying


Peel and cut the plantains in half and then each half into three pieces.

Mix all of the above except the oil together with a whisk. The amount of ingredients can be adjusted according to your taste buds.Dip the cut plantains into the prepared mix.

Heat oil in a pan and when hot enough, add the dipped plantains one by one. Fry on each side for 1 min or so and drain on paper towels. Enjoy !!!
