Pazhampori and Eithappazham Porichathu / Banana and Dates Fritters

Banana fritters / Pazham Pori
ananas - ripe / nenthrappazham 2
atta / whole wheat powder 3/4 cup
rice powder 1/4 cup
cardamom powder 2 pinches optional
egg 1 optional
sugar 2 tsp

How to prepare
Cut banana into three equal pieces. Chop each piece ( length wise ) into three equal pieces. Make a thick batter mixing all the ingredients above. Dip banana pieces in this and shallow fry in oil.

Dates fritters / Eithappazham Porichathu
ates / eithappazham 15
cashew nuts or almonds 15
atta / wheat flour 3/4 cup
rice powder 1/4 cup
sugar 2 teaspoons

Roast cashew nuts in little ghee. Or apply little ghee on cashew nuts and microwave it for few seconds.

Make a slit on one side of the date. Remove the seed through that. Replace a cashew nut or badam instead of the seed. Join the side by pressing gently. Do this for all the dates and cashews. Make a thick batter using water, atta, rice flour and sugar.
Heat oil. Dip the dates in the batter and deep fry them. you can fry 4 or 5 together. Let them not to stick to one another.
You can use maida instead of atta. Adding egg will make the banana fritters more crispy. I haven't tried egg for frying dates.

  5. Seena these fritters look lovely. The dates sound delicious with the nut inside. Your platter of food looks really amazing. :-)

  6. May I ask you one question? Should bananas be ripe or raw? or it doesn't matter? May be it's a dumb question. Please bear with me! :-)

  11. Hi friends,
    thanks for your lovely comments!

    You are welcome! :)
    Bananas should be ripe for this. You can use raw banana for frying spicy fritters using besan and maida etc.

    Prave, at home everybody used maida before. But now everyone moved to atta to avoid eating maida toomuch.
