Pazham Pori/ Ethakka Appam/ Banana Fry


Ripe Kerala Banana – 4

All purpose flour/ Maida – 1 cup

Fine rice flour – 2 tbsp

Turmeric powder – a pinch

Water – as required

Baking soda – 1/8 tsp

Sugar – 1 tsp

Salt – 1/4 tsp

Oil – for frying


Remove the skin of the bananas and cut them lengthwise and cut each piece into two.  Make a batter using maida, rice flour, turmeric powder, baking soda, sugar and salt by adding enough water.  The batter should not be too thin.  Add more maida if it is too thin and add more water if it is too thick.  Heat oil in a kadai and dip each banana piece in the batter and very carefully put them into the oil.  Reduce the heat to medium.  When once side is light golden brown in color, turn it and fry the other side too.  If the heat is too much the banana will not be cooked properly.  Drain and transfer to a kitchen tissue.  Now super tasty ‘Pazham Pori’ is ready to serve.  ‘Pazham Pori/ Ethakka Appam/ Banana Fry’ is a snack anyone would love to have!  Serve it along with hot tea and enjoy with your kids and family members!!!
