The day I cooked - Deeply Fried Ripened Fritters

19 April, 2019

Deeply fried Ripened Banana Fritters, or പഴം പൊരി or simply Pazhampori is the first thing that comes to a Keralite's mind when it starts raining. Coupled with chaiya or tea, this snack serves as a deadly combo to your taste receptors!

Now how do we make Deeply fried Ripened Banana Fritter... haha, Pazhamporis? It's simple.

(For a serving size of 4 pazhamporis)


  • Banana - 1 banana.jpg
  • Wheat flour , i.e. Atta (or Maida, I prefer Atta) - 1 cup

  • Sugar - 1 spoon
  • Cooking Oil


  • Take a cup of wheat flour, add about 1.5 cups of water and 1 spoon of sugar.

Mix well, adjust proportion if need be. In the end you should end up with this slimy stuff -

  • Take a banana and split it into two, and slice to to get pieces like this -

Now we come to the frying part.

  • Take a frying pan and add cooking oil. (Quantity - about approximately as much as you can just dip the bananas in)

  • Dip the cut bananas thoroughly into the slimy stuff we made earlier. Place it in the frying pan carefully.

The banana pieces must be totally covered with the stuff.

  • Add all the pieces carefully, and flip the sides when they get cooked

Be careful not to just drop them in the hot oil, place them gently, like I did below :)

Aaand that's pretty much it!
