Kerala style Pazham Pori/Banana fritters

                                                              We are tasting a lot of Kerala Dishes these days because my friend is a Keralite and she is a superb cook.We have been trying a lot of dihses but few of them i would like to try out and blog it.One of them is this Banana Fritters or popular "Pazham Pori".It is a famous tea time snack in kerela apparently.
She made this and bought it when we were all going for a movie together in the same car.we were all so hungry and the fritters got over in few seconds.It reminds me of the appam we make with wheat flour,jaggery and banana but this one has its uniquness and taste.

You will Need
  • 3/4 cup Maida or Flour
  • 1/4 cup Rice flour
  • 3 Ripe Nendram Pazham
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 2-3 Tbs of Sugar
  • A pinch of Turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda 
  • Oil to Deep fry.

How to

  1. Take Rice flour,maida,turmeric powder,salt,sugar and baking soda in a wide bowl add water and make it into a thick batter.
2.Make sure there are no lumps.
3.Cut the banana in to slightly lengthy pieces.Same time heat oil in a small frying pan.
4.Dip the banana pieces in the batter.Let it get coated on all sides.
5.Drop them in hot oil and fry on both sides by turning it around.
6.When both sides are brown remove and drain in a tissue paper.

Enjoy the fritters when it is hot!!!!!


  • You can use wheat flour instead of the Maida for the batter.
  • You can add a pinch of Vanilla essence or Cardamom powder for a flavour when you are serving as a dessert.
