Pazham Pori

A favorite snack of mine since my childhood days. A very common snack/ tiffin of Kerala and can be easily got from any vendor during travel by train and mostly in every street corner too. Banana commonly called nendrampazham is a fruit that can be easily got in Kerala and this recipe brings all memories of me pestering my father to get me pazham pori whenever the guy with the basket passed us by..... Well my recipe did come out good and my son is now a big fan of it :)


Ripe banana - 1
Maida - 1/4 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Sugar - as per requirement
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil to fry
Salt a pinch

Mix the maida, rice flour, sugar, cardamom powder, turmeric powder and a pinch of salt with water to make a batter which has the consistency of bajji batter.
Cut the banana into thick long strips, say 1 banana makes 6 strips.
Heat oil in a frying pan and the oil has to be really hot.
Dip the banana one at a time and place them in the hot oil slowly.
Leave some gap in between them.
Fry them until golden brown and well cooked.
Place them on to napkins to drain the oil and eat it warm.
An easy sweet snack that everyone will fall in love with...

I am sending this to the deep fried event by Paajaka.

One of my favourites too. I think it is an acquired taste, though...not a lot of people outside Kerala seem to like it.
