Kerala Pazham Pori | Healthy Plantain Fritters

September 20, 2019



Pazham Pori is a popular Kerala snack served as an evening snack. Ripe plantain or Nendra Pazham is used to prepare this. Sliced bananas dipped in a batter and deep fried. These bananas are not so easily available everywhere, but if you find a Kerala shop, then surely can get it from there.

If you have ever tasted these Pazham Poris served in thattukada in Kerala, you must be knowing these banana are cut lengthwise full size. However, it doesn't matter. Also these are made with refined flour or maida, which is not good.

So, here I have replaced maida with wheat flour to make it a guilt free snack. You can cut the bananas in your desired shape. These are slightly crispy and sweet. Use just ripe banana and not very over ripe bananas. The amount of sugar added depends on the sweetness of bananas.
