This is a South Indian style fried snack that is easy to make and quick to go with a hot cup of tea. Kids and adults will cherish this alike and is one of my family's favorite snack for a cold wintery evening.
2 plantains peeled and sliced thinly into desired shapes
1 cup bengal gram flour
2 tbsp rice flour
1/2 tsp baking powder (optional)
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp red pepper powder
chopped curry leaves
salt to taste
water to make smooth batter
oil for deep frying
Mix the ingredients for batter in water into a smooth paste, adjust the salt and chilly as per desired taste.
Heat the oil for deep frying in a deep pan. dip the sliced plantains into batter and slowly drop them into hot oil. Fry until they change color and remove with a slotted spoon draining any excess oil. Let rest on paper towels for any extra oil to absorb. serve hot with ketchup or chutney of choice.
