Pazham Pori | Crispy Banana Fritters

Traditional Kerala snack with plantain.

Pazham pori is a very famous sweet snack of south indian especially kerala. It is My all time favorite one. We used to make pazham pori with maida. But here I didn’t use maida in this recipe instead made batter with whole wheat flour. I have added little bit rice flour to get more crispiness to the pazham pori. We need plantain(kerala banana) for making this recipe. I have already posted some tasty recipes with plantain like Plantain milk shake,plantain dumplings | ethappazham kozukkatta,unnakkaya,Pazham pradhaman | plantain kheer,stuffed banana | pazham nirachathu.
