Number of serving: 4
5-6 raw bananas

1 and half cup chickpea flour - besan

2 tablespoons rice flour (optional)

1/2 or 1 teaspoon red chilli powder

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

a pinch of cooking soda

oil for frying

water to mix the batter


  • Peel the bananas. Slice them into two, lenghtwise. Put the slices in salted water so that they do not get discolored.
  • Prepare the batter by mixing besan, rice flour, cooking soda, salt, chilly powder, and turmeric powder. Add little water and mix. We need a thick batter.
  • So avoid adding water once, as the batter may become thin. There can be no measurement for water as it depends on the quality of the chickpea flour. So its better to keep on adding little water and mixing, so that one gets the right consistency. This recipe requires a thick batter.
  • Now pat dry the banana slices on a kitchen towel. Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Dip the slices in the batter and coat the banana slices completely with the batter.
  • Add the batter coated slices in the hot oil and fry the pakoras till golden brown. Drain the fried plaintain pakoras on a kitchen tissues. Serve hot with green chutney or coconut chutney or tomato ketchup.
