Banana Fritters(Nentram palam Appam)

Crispy Banana Fritters
  My first week of blogging marathon is over...Welcome to another week of blogging marathon..This week I am cooking on a theme of “Regional Specials”..I selected kerala as this weeks region,because I love keralan foods...Their food has a lovely flavour with lots of coconut in it...I have selected 7 dishes to make all over this week...So I decided to start with a famous keralan dish called nentram palam appam..It is one of the typical keralan snacks..I recommend you all to give this a try because It is so good..You can have this warm or at room temperature.try to use the ripe banana for this,that what makes this dish unique..You can increase the amount of sugar in this...I fried this in plain refined oil,but you could fry this in coconut oil,that’s how they make this in kerala.. So please try this and let me know what you think..

I have a round up of previous weeks recipes on the theme “15 min Quick Breakfast”
