Nendran Banana Fritters/Kerela Banana Fritters/NendraPazha Bajji-Without cooking soda


Bajji/Fritter is an awesome snack option especially when its drizzling outside. As I don’t prefer gram flour much this is not a common snack option. I ended up with this recipe when I wanted to make “Pazham pori” – A typical Kerela dish. Since the recipe for maida,I decided to make usual bajji in a different way. Nendran Banana is an excellent storehouse of nutrients. It is ideal for all ages .My son loves to have it steamed. This can be your toddler snack menu.

6.When it is completely fried both the sides,strain oil completely.

7.Healthy and yummy snack is ready for your kids.Serve it hot.


Cook in medium flame.

Turn the sides and ensure complete cooking

Thickness of the banana is your choice.

Since it is a fruit slicing very thin was not possible for me.

Fermented idly batter gives a fluffy nature to the fritters.

You can replace gram flour by atta too.

Add water carefully.

The batter has to be almost in dosa batter consistency. It has to be neither too thick nor too thin.

If its too thick the banana inside will not be cooked.

If its too thin the layer will not get spread in the banana.
