Banana Fritters is a popular evening snack prepard with a type of banana exclusively available in Kerala (sometimes found in Tamilnadu too). The traditional recipe may not have the sesame seeds. I have added it to give a difference to the taste and appearance of the pazhampori as it is known and found in almost all bakeries and tea stalls of Kerala. Flour - 3/4 cup Rice flour - 1 tbsp Salt - 1/4 tsp Sugar - 3 tsp Sesame - 1/2 tsp Turmeric - 1/2 tsp (for colour) Water - 3/4 - 1 cup Banana - 3 Oil - to deep fry Prepare a thick batter with the flour, rice flour and water. Add salt, sugar, turmeric and sesame. Cut the banana into 3 strips. Dip the banana in the batter and deep fry in hot oil. After thoughts: If you do not wish to have lengthy strips of banana, it can be halved first horizontally and then cut into strips, so that only less oil is needed for frying.
