Pazham pori /Ripe Plantain fritters

Pazham pori -a very popular snack of Kerala,India. This popular snack reminds me of my summer holidays when we used to visit our grandmother and aunts in Kerala and we were pampered with yummy treats and snacks.As a child I would eagerly wait for tea time to taste this yummy snack which my grand mother or my aunts would make. Its easy to prepare and tastes very yummy.

PAZHAM PORI

Ingredients:
2 ripe plantains,
1 cup of maida /all purpose flour,
2 tbsp of rice flour,
3-4 tbsp of sugar,
1/4 tsp of baking soda,
a pinch of salt and
oil for frying.

Method:
Cut the plantains into half and then with each half cut 3-4 thin slices lengthwise. In a bowl, make a batter with all purpose flour, rice flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Heat oil in a frying pan, dip the plantains in the batter and coat hem with it, deep fry 2-3 pieces at a time until crisp and golden brown. Remove and place the fritters on a paper towel to drain excess oil. Serve hot as a snack with tea/coffee.
