pazha bajji / banana fritters

I believe all south Indians would have tasted pazha bajji. I love nendran pazham pori. This reminds me of my close friend arthi who is a real huge fan of pazham pori. by the way, i didn't get nendran pazham in my place so i used ordinary bananas to make the fritters.

  • Ripe Banana 2 nos (preferably nendran pazham)
  • maida flour 1/2 cup
  • rice flour 1tbsp
  • sugar 2tbsp
  • baking soda a pinch
  • yellow food color 1 drop
  • salt a pinch (optional)
  • water 1/2cup
  • oil to deep fry
  • slit the banana into two halves and slice each halves into thin slices.
  • mix all the ingredients except the oil and make a thick batter out of it with water.
  • heat oil in a shallow pan or kadai and just dip the banana slices in the batter and deep fry in the hot oil.
  • pazha bajji is ready to serve.
