2 to 3 tbspn. sugar
½ tspn. Elaichi powder
Oil to deep fry
The Batter

Smash the bananas thoroughly, don’t leave any lumps. Add sooji, the quantity of sooji may be altered. You may add more sooji if you feel its too soggy. Add sugar and elaichi powder. Mix well. Heat oil in pan, drop spoonful of the mixture prepared and fry till golden brown. Your banana are ready! They are crisp from outside and soothingly soft from inside. They taste yum even after the are cooled. You may pop it in your mouth whenever you are hungry and yet you have to make meals for the family!
