I do have to cajole my son to make him eat banana, makes faces and ultimately run away from the scene. However, I have a determination of Scorpio sun sign ;-)so I think out of the box and innovate new ways to camouflage banana in different form and tastes so that my son is gullible enough to have it thinking it as any other fritter.
Since bananas have iron and potassium so as to provide vital nutrients to a growing child, I recommend to all the Moms who have children reluctant to have bananas to us this recipe.
These fritters are guaranteed to please the fussiest kid, very similar to banana pancakes, but heavier on the fruit, which makes them moister and richer tasting. Add rava for the fine texture and little firmness while flipping the fritter on hot oil. Also a tiny amount of cardamom to uplift the batter without overpowering it. The silvered pistachios and almonds add some crunch.
2 medium ripe Bananas
1/4 cup All purpose flour
2 tbsp fine Rava (sooji)
2 tbsp desiccated Coconut
1/2 cup Milk
2 tbsp powered Sugar
A pinch of cardamom powder
1/4 tsp Salt
Fistful of silvered almonds and pistachio
Oil /butter for frying
In a bowl mix everything except Oil / Butter till you get a smooth batter.
If too thick add a little milk and if batter looks too thin then add little more flour. Mix well to avoid any lumps. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Using a tablespoon measure, drop the dollops of the batter into hot oil.
Flip when the edges starts to turn brown and when you see tiny holes appear on the surface. It's ready when golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels. They really go well with big scoop of Vanilla ice-cream. We have it with juice or a glass of milk. Makes about 12-14 fritters.
