Pazham pori, also known as ethakka appam is one of the favorite tea time snack of keralites. It is made with ripe plantain which is called nendra pazham / ethapazham in malayalam. My non-keralite friends refer it to as Kerala Banana...
Ripe plantain - 2 big
Maida/Plain Flour - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 tsp (need not add if plantain is very ripe and sweet)
Salt - a pinch
Oil - for deep frying
1. Make a thick batter of maida, salt and sugar. Cut the plantains into thin slices and dip in batter and coat well.
2. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the coated plantains till golden brown on both sides.
