Pazham Pori - Plantain Fritters

Pazham Pori is a sweet dish made with ripe plantains dipped in flour mixed with sugar. This is a popular dish in Kerala, usually sold in road side tea-shops. It is easy to prepare and it goes well with a cup of tea. Here goes the recipe!!

  • 1 ripe plantain (Nendra Pazham)
  • 1 cup plain flour/ all- purpose flour/ Maida
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup water and oil to fry


  • Peel plantains, cut is two halves, and slice each halves into four to six slices. One plantain yielded 12 pieces for me.
  • Mix flour with ½ cup water to make a smooth batter, mix in sugar, turmeric, and salt.
  • Heat oil in a pan; dip plantain slices in batter and deep fry till golden brown. Drain and serve hot with tea.
