Pazham Pori/Banana Fritters

Pazham Pori or Banana fritters are very popular in Kerala. They are made with a kind of banana called Etha Pazham. They are long yellow bananas which are harder than the normal bananas that I get in Uk. These ones hold well when deep fried.

Etha Pazham (Nedram Pazham) is a favourite in any form among ppl from Kerala. You can eat it as it is. Steam it and eat it as as breakfast. It goes well as a side for Puttu. You can make Pazha Pradaman (a payasam/kheer made of this banana, jaggery and coconut). The list is endless.

This one is a super simple recipe. It can be prepared in 10 minutes. And they taste heavenly with a cup of coffee or tea.


Banana 1
Maida/All Purpose Flour 1/2 cup
Sugar 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
a pinch of salt

Oil for deep frying.

Method of Preparation

1. Mix the maida, sugar, turmeric and salt with little water to make a thick batter.

2. Slice the banana into small pieces.

3. Heat oil in a pan. Dip the sliced bananas in the batter and fry them in the oil.

Serve with a hot cup of tea or coffee.
