  • 1/2 cup Fine rice flour
  • 1/4 cup Plain flour
  • 1/4 cup Grated coconut fresh or frozen
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons White sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Water
  • Salt 1 pinch
  • Oil For deep frying
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine rice flour, plain flour, grated coconut, white sesame seeds, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add water and mix well to form a thick batter. Keep aside the batter for 10 minutes.
  2. Peel and slice the bananas into thin slices. (I sliced them lengthwise into 3 pieces)
  3. Dip the sliced bananas in the batter and coat them evenly.
  4. Deep fry the banana slices on both sides until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel to drain off excess oil. Serve hot.
  5. NOTE - Do not use overripe bananas as they absorb too much oil and tend to become mushy while frying.
  6. If you are using plantains (ethapazham), 2 large-sized ones would be enough for this recipe. Peel and cut them into 2 equal sections and slice each section lengthwise into 4 pieces.
  7. One cup = 250 ml, one tablespoon = 15 ml, one teaspoon = 5 ml.
