Banana Bonda (wheat flour) | Kerala Chayakada Palharam | Wheat flourBanana Fritters

Tea time or snack time is an important meal as per kids are concerned.Kids demand newer varieties and I prefer the recipe should be a healthy one too.As for the recipe,many of us are aware with it ,banana bonda that we used to get in chayakada(tea stalls) in Kerala.They use all purpose flour but I used wheat flour instead and I added two teaspoons of sugar ;however you may delete the sugar part as its already sweet with banana..

wheat flour 1 cup
banana 3 mashed
sunflower seeds 1/3 cup (you can use any raisins or nuts)
baking soda 1/2 tsp
sugar 2 tsp (optional)
salt a pinch
oil (for deep frying)


  • Sift the flour with baking soda and salt.
  • Blend the bananas with hand or mixer.
  • Mix all ingredients and make a thick batter.
  • Heat oil in a pan and pour the mix with a spoon into the boiling oil.
  • Pour 3-4 balls into oil and flip it both sides till it becomes brown.
  • place it on a paper towel and is ready to serve with tea.
Servings 15 fritters

* I used regular dole bananas but you can use palamkodyan bananas(mysore pazham) to make this recipe.

Sending this to Radhika @ Tickling palates ,this month series theme snacks
