Pazham Pori

Pazham Pori is one of my favorite sweet dish from Kerala and I am little too crazy about this snacks. First time when I had Pazham Pori was, when I was traveling from Delhi to Kerala, and I had it in one of the station in Kerala and believe me since then I am fond of Pazham Pori. But to be very honest with you, that was the first and the last day I had Pazham Pori in a train or station. Thanks to the hygienic condition in which they cooked .

And that is when I decided to make Pazham pori at home. Pazham Pori is a very simple and easy to make recipe at home. My mother- in-law is the one who taught me, how to make an easy Pazham Pori snack recipe at home.

Not only this, if you have some guest coming at home and you haven’t planned anything and you have this banana available then this is best recipe to serve immediately.pazham pori.

Notes

If you want you can use semolina(rava) instead of using rice flour to keep the pazham pori more crispy.
To make it a little healthy recipe, you can use atta flour rather then using maida.
Turmeric is optional, so you can avoid using it or use it just a pinch so that the turmeric flavor shouldn't come.
