We tried this Banana Fritter in a restaurant accompanied by Ice Cream and dusted with Cinnamon and. I tried to make this dish at home and it turned out amazingly delicious! Try this at home and let us know how all your guests and family members go ga-ga over it.
All Purpose Flour (Maida) – 1 ½ cup
Rice Flour – 3 tbsp
Salt – a tiny pinch
Turmeric Powder – small pinch
Cardoman Powder – ¼ tsp
Sugar – 2 tbsp
Water – as required
Eno Fruit Salt – ¼ tsp (or Baking Soda Powder- ¼ tsp)
Nendran Pazham (Kerala Banana) or Sweet Plantains – 2
Vanilla Ice Cream
Roasted Sesame Seeds –
Cinnamon Sugar Powder or Castor Sugar
Maple Syrup (Honey)
Take the All Purpose Flour, Rice Flour, Salt, Turmeric Powder, Cardoman Powder and Sugar in a pan. Combine everything well. Add water little by little and stir well without forming any lump. The texture must be neither too thick nor too thin. Keep aside.
Peel the Bananas. Cut the Bananas into thick vertical slices (or you can cut them into round slices also).
Heat the Oil in a deep frying pan.
In the meanwhile, add Eno Fruit Salt to the batter and stir well. (This should be done just before you start frying.)
Dip the Bananas in the batter, take out and drop into the hot oil one by one. (Do not drop too many into the oil that they get crowded in the Oil.) Fry them till they turn Golden. Transfer them to a plate. Dust Cinnamon Sugar Powder and also drop few drops of Honey Maple Syrup and serve hot.
To serve with Ice Cream, place the fritters in a serving dish and dust Cinnamon Caster Sugar over them when they are hot. Place a scoop of Ice Cream on it. Sprinkle Roasted Sesame Seeds and also drop crispy Bhoondi over them. Serve when the fritters are hot.
It is important to have the batter with the right consistency and texture. Else the fritters will become oily and they will not puff up.
