Stuffed Banana Fritters | Pazham Nirachadhu Recipe

Stuffed Banana Fritters
Stuffed banana fritters / Pazham nirachadhu is made with ripe banana which is stuffed with a sweet mixture of coconut and poha. It is a very tasty and inevitable snack from Kerala. Yethangai is used to prepare this. Yesterday my amma brought me some yethangai and this recipe soon strikes me. This fritters is my most favorite childhood snack.
I love this so much but have tasted only few times. Whenever i go to a place near kanyakumari, I get a chance to eat this fritters. I never thought I will make this at home some day. I'm very happy about the result. Everyone at home liked this snack. Please try this and let me know how it turned out...
