Aratikaya Bajji (Spicy Plantain Fritters)




This is my submission for the event Sunday Snacks- Hot n Spicy…hosted by http://pallavi-foodblog.blogspot.com/2008/12/event-sunday-snacks-hot-n-spicy-update.html


What you need:



Plantain-1
Gram flour or besan-2 cups
Ajwain-1 teaspoon
Chilli powder-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Salt-1 teaspoon
Hot oil-2 tablespoons
Oil for deep fry

How to make:

Peel off the banana and cut it into thin circles. Soak them in salt water for 10 minutes. Sieve the besan in a mixing bowl and add crushed ajwain, chilli powder, salt and hot oil. Mix it with sufficient water into a pancake batter consistency and leave it for 5 minutes. Heat the oil in a wok and dip the banana slices into the batter one by one and drop them into the oil carefully. Fry them until they turn golden yellow in colour. Drain them on a paper towel and serve them hot with sauce...

I love plantains! I've never thought of putting them with spicy flavors, but it sounds like a delicious idea, especially for fritters!
