Aratikaya Bajji / Plantain Fritters and an Award

First let me start with Thanking my wonderful friend Archana for sharing a wonderful award  with me and waking me up as I almost went to hibernation after all the celebrations with the Cheese Cake.

Today I am featuring a superb snack Aratikaya Bajji, that is filled with high starch vegetable/fruit raw banana (Plantain) and sending this to my friend who calls herself a mad scientist in her kitchen, and conducting these wonderful events at her space Back to Roots and veggie and fruit of the month Raw Banana which is Priya's brainchild.

Plantain Fritters

Plantain - 1

For Batter:
Besan (Gram) Flour - 1 cup
Rice Flour - 2 Tbsp
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Ajanamoto ( or Vamu) - 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1 Tbsp
salt - 2 tsp
Oil - for deep frying


  1. In a medium bowl mix all the dry ingredients and water in small quantities until the fine thin batter forms. Keep it  aside for few minutes. As Baking Soda makes the batter little fluffy.
  2. Meanwhile Peel the Banana and cut into round circles, and drop them to water added with turmeric. Turmeric avoids the plantain becoming from black.
  3. Heat the oil on the stove for deep frying.
  4. Once the Oil is hot, dip the banana into batter and drop them slowly into the oil.
  5. Fry them until golden color and drain them on the kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
  6. Now serve them hot with Tamarind Sauce and Mint Sauce or Chili Sauce during the tea time.

Oh, that just reminds it's my tea time.  Sianora, then!! :-)
