This time, I bring forth to you another snack for the evening time…The banana fritters(pazham pori in malayalam) brings back a whole lot of childhood memories. Every time I visit my native, this snack is a must…it fills my appetite and heart…Now it warms my heart watching my 2 year old having it with the same vigour….. 🙂
The banana commonly used is the plantain banana. Living in bangalore, it is sometimes hard to get these from the market, but thanks to the online shopping era we live in now, I just sit home and wait for the delivery 😜The recipe below is one with my own touch..
