Palam Pori / Ripe Banana Fritters | Mom's Recipe

Ripe Banana Fritters / Palam pori as they call it, is a famous tea time snack in Kerala. People familiar with the Keralite cuisine will know how delicious this snack tastes. I am an ardent fan of this and prefer to have it anytime. So whenever we have ripe nendram palams at home mom makes it a point to make me some of these and I just gobble them down in minutes without sharing it with anyone. But this time when she made it, poor me… got only 3 pieces cos there was huss dear sitting nearby who is now a newly-turned fan of this.

~*What U Need*~
All purpose flour / Maida – ½ cup
Rice flour – 1 tbsp

Yellow food coloring / Turmeric powder – a pinch

Sugar – 3 tsp

Salt – a pinch

Baking powder – ¼ tsp

Water – as needed
Nendram Palam – 1
Oil – for frying

How I made it
Sieve the maida, rice flour and baking powder together.
To this add turmeric powder/food coloring, sugar and salt and combine well.
Add water and mix well and bring it to a semi-liquid consistency.
Slice the bananas as shown below.

Dip this in the flour mixture.

Fry till golden brown

Pat the excess oil using tissue.
Serve as tea-time snack !!!

I had some excess flour mixture to which I added some sugar and fried. It was equally crispy and tasty.
