This is a very popular snack in Kerala. It is made with ripe banana (Ethapazham). A very easy and tasty snack. It is best enjoyed with tea or coffee. One of my favourite snack.
Ripe Banana - 2 nos
Maida - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tbsp (add according to the sweetness of the banana)
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp (optional, this gives the colour)
Salt - 1 pinch
Oil for deep frying

- Peel and cut the bananas into half (horizontal). Then slice it vertically into thin long pieces. Keep this aside.
- In a bowl, mix maida, rice flour, sugar, turmeric powder and salt with water (add as needed) to get a smooth batter. There should not be any lumps. Keep this aside.
- Heat oil in a kadai. when it is medium hot, dip each slices of banana in the batter and put it in the oil.
- When both the sides turn golden brown colour, transfer it into a tissue paper.
- Serve it hot.
