Pazham pori /Ethakka appam (Banana fritters)

When ever I make pazham pori, my li’l sis comes to my mind. b’cos its her favorite.

My achachan(dad) used to get us mid morning snacks when we are home (he still gets us those when go home for vacations)
He gets each of us our own favs.mine is dal vada, my li’l sis’s is pazham pori.
Very yummy sweet snack,not much difficult to put together.
I have always felt that it tastes the best if we make it with fully ripened bananas.(when the peel turns almost black)
I get bananas these days for my li’l one, her fav breakfast mashed with cereal.
She loved this version of banana too.She claps when she likes things(being a 10 month old, i guess that is her only way of letting me know she wants more)
At the very first bite, she jumped and clapped…oh,yeah! she likes pazham pori
I hope, you too will like them :)

You’ll need:

Banana: 2 nos (fully ripened)
All purpose flour: 2-3 tbsp
Sugar: 1tbsp
Salt: a pinch
Oil: as required for deep fry

How to make: 

Peel the bananas and cut them half.Slice each half lengthwise into 3-4 pieces.
Mix all purpose flour and enough water to make the batter. Add sugar and salt.
The consistency should be right enoguh to coat bananas when you dip them in the batter.
Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is bubbling hot, dip the banana pieces in the batter and deep fry them for 2-3 min on each side, until they turn golden brown. Drain them on a paper towel n enjoy it hot off the stove :)
