Shallow Fried Plantain (Banana) Fritters

Pan fried banana or plantain fritters can be served as a side dish with meals or enjoyed as a tasty tea time snack.

Raw Banana/Plantain - 1 big
Red Chilli Powder/Cayenne Pepper/Paprika - 1 tbsp
Chat Masala or Aamchur - 1 tsp

1. Boil about 4 cups water in a vessel.  Dice the raw banana in 2 or 3 pieces and make cuts on the skin with a knife.  Add diced banana to the boiling water and cook for 2 - 3 minutes or till half cooked.  After cooling the banana skin will come off easily.
2. Dice the banana into slightly thick slices.  Sprinkle little salt, chat masala and cayenne pepper over the slices, mix and keep it aside for about 30 minutes.
3. Heat 1 - 2 tbsp oil in a pan.  Spread the slices on the pan and fry till both sides are roasted well.  You can coat these marinated banana slices in semolina or rava or sooji to make it more crisp.
4. Serve Crispy tasty Banana Fritters with dal rice or as a snack.
