Kola Pitha/ Kola Bora/Banana Fritters

2015-01-24

If you have over ripened bananas that are waiting to be thrwon out soon , this banana fritters will surely bring a smile on your face for not wasting and for making such a yummilicious goodness out of them which have long shelf life too .

Ingredients:

3 medium sized banana
3/4 th cup – 1 cup rice flour ( you may need more or less)*
1 egg
1/4 th cup- 1/3 rd cup sugar ( according to your taste)
1/2 tea spoon cinnamon powder
A pinch of nutmeg powder ( optional)
1 tea spoon baking powder
1/2 tea spoon baking soda
Oil for deep frying

* Many use riceflour and flour together . If you wish you can do so . For very soft fritters , use flour and rice flour half and half . But the original recipe only calls for riceflour and I love using only riceflour .

Procedure:

1. Blend the Bananas with the egg . Pour them in a bowl .

2. Add the riceflour , sugar , baking powder , baking soda , cinnamon, nutmeg powder. Mix very well . The batter should be very thick .

3. In the mean time heat the oil on medium -low flame and when ready ,drop little batter with your hand . Try to drop them close to the oil , that would help to shape them as much round as possible . Fry until dark brown and crispy .

Enjoy hot or cold . Either way it tastes too good .

Notes:

For nice presentation , dust some powdered sugar over them through a strainer . 🙂
