Goan Banana Fritters

An Indian sweet snack from the state of Goa – basically, banana pancakes.





PrepTime 5mins – CookTime 20mins – Serves 8



6 bananas
2-3 cups milk
2 eggs
6-8 tbsp sugar (more if bananas aren’t too ripe & sweet)

oil to pan-fry the pancakes or oil-spray



Cooking Instructions:

1. Mix all the above ingredients (except oil) using an egg beater or with your hand, adding milk last, a little by little till the right consistency in reached – not too fluid, yet not too stiff; should flow like a thick sauce.

2, Spray/grease your non-stick pay & heat to medium.

3. Spread a large tablespoon full of the batter into a round pancake of about 6″ diameter & repeat as many times as you can in 1 pan.

4. Flip over after 3-4 minutes or when its done on 1 side & cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side.

5. Toss off onto paper-towels & carry on with the next batch (batches) till the batter is over.


Tips: You can try these variations to the above recipe: Add 1/2 cup semolina/suji/rawa or 4 tbsp lightly boiled oats (very healthy) to the batter. You can even add 1/2 tsp cinnamon/ cardamom powder or even 4 tbsp sweet chocolate powder to the batter, as additional flavor options.
