Plantain Fritters

Plantain fritters are also known as Bhajiyas in Hindi and Balikaay bhajee in Kannada.


1 large Ripe plantain (cut into thin square slices)
Besan ¾ bowl
Rice flour ½ bowl
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder ½ tsp
1 tsp cumin seeds


1. Mix all ingredients(except plantain) and make batter using water. The batter should be able to coat the plantain pieces.

2. Dip each plantain piece in the batter and put it into oil and deep fry.

3. Fry till they are light orange in color.


Adding rice flour to the batter, makes fritters very crisp.
