Pazham pori/bajji is a vary popular snack of Kerala, especially in railway stations. I think this is one snack which is not confined to any particular region of Kerala. I always look forward to train journey through Kerala, for these Pazham pori's sold in the station. Its very easy to make, provided you have ripe nenthrapazham at hand. The only drawback is, it drinks lot of oil. I prepared using one banana, so that we will not have much to indulge in.
Ripe plantain - 1
Maida - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tbspn
Rice flour - 1 tspn (For crispness)
salt, baking soda, yellow color - a pinch each
Oil for deep frying
Mix maida, sugar, rice flour, salt, baking soda and yellow colour well. Add water to make a thick batter.
Cut the banana into two. Slice them into medium thick slices.
Heat oil in a kadai. When oil is hot, dip the slice in the batter and slide carefully into the oil. Deep fry in medium heat. when the banana slice floats in the oil, slowly flip it using a slotted spoon. Fry till it turns golden brown and drain on absorbent paper. Serve hot with a cup of tea/coffee.
