Pazha Bajji / Pazham Pori Vada / Banana Fritters

Pazham Pori Vada is a famous sweety(!) snack from the neighbouring state Kerala. Our city(Coimbatore) being so close to Palakad, I didn't feel its another street. :) In fact, my work place was almost in the border of Kerala! So is this each corner of the streets in our neighbourhood you will find the small road side shops where they make hot n delicious bajji's!

Back home, I have tasted this Pazha bajji many times, but this is the first time am trying it at home. While checking for Jack fruit in a Mexican shop, we found these ripened nenthiram pazham, hence here I am with the quick n yummy evening snack on a Vishu day! :)

Banana [Nenthiram pazham]-1
All purpose flour / Maida - 3/4cup
Rice flour - 1 tablespoon
Baking soda- a pinch
Salt- a pinch
Yellow food colour- few drops
Sugar- 2tablespoons [adjust according to the sweetness of the banana, I had to add 1/4 cup as the fruit was not so sweet]

Combine the flours, baking soda,salt,sugar and food colour in a bowl. Add water little by little and make a thick batter.Keep aside for 10 minutes.
Peel the banana, slice it into thick stripes.
Heat oil on medium heat. Dip the banana slices in the batter, and deep fry them..
Take the fritters once they turn golden in colour, strain the extra oil in a paper towel..
Hot n yummy banana fritters are ready to serve...serve warm with a cup of hot chai n enjoy! :)

Wishing Everyone A Very Happy TAMIL NEW YEAR!
