Vaazhai Pazha Paniyaram (Banana Fritters) is a South Indian sweet that can be prepared with a few basic ingredients found in any kitchen. Learn to make this tasty sweet by following the recipe below. Enjoy!

·         Banana, ripened – 3

·         Wheat flour/all-purpose flour – 1 cup

·         Granulated sugar/brown sugar – 1/3 cup

·         Cardamom powder – ¼ tsp

·         Salt - a pinch

·         Oil (for deep frying)

·         Chopped cashews (optional) 


1.      Peel bananas (3) and cut them into pieces.

2.      Mash them with the help of fork to make them completely mushy.

3.      Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and mix it with the mashed bananas.

4.      Then add 1 cup all-purpose flour, ¼ tsp cardamom powder, and a pinch of salt.

5.      Make sure the batter is completely mixed well.

6.      Add 1-2 tbsp of water (if needed) to make sure you get a thick consistency of a cake batter. If your batter becomes too thin, add some all-purpose flour to make the batter thick.

7.      Take a small spoonful of batter and drop it gently one by one to fry the paniyaram in hot oil. Add only 4-5 paniyaram at a time while frying in hot.

8.      Make sure you fry the paniyaram in low to medium flame because they will get burnt/undercooked on high flame. Also make sure you slowly flip them while frying so that both sides get cooked evenly and turn golden brown.

9.      Transfer the paniyaram on to a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb oil.

10.  The vaazhai pazha paniyaram taste best when served hot!

"I had a very supportive partner. When I had so much conviction in the potential, my partner said let's do it. My mom is a bit more traditional and I said I should do it part-time and keep working. It’s been two years and it still doesn’t pay me anything close to my corporate job. That’s how I knew that I truly do it for the passion and not the money."
