Banana Fritters

If there is one thing I would like to visit in the US, it would be the Grand Canyon.  Incidentally this is also on my top 5 places to visit.  For me the name says it all – Grand Canyon – majestic, historic and full of grandeur.  The variations in climate and elevation in this area means you can see different types of flora and fauna in this area. 

The Grand Canyon is estimated to be millions of years old and the rock formations have developed over time.  It has also been a settlement for the Native Americans as well as the Europeans for centuries.   When I look at the pictures of the Grand Canyon, I am in awe of this creation.  I can imagine how insignificant I would feel when I am actually there – the majesty and greatness of this natural wonder in comparison to me – one tiny little thing living in a tiny country somewhere in Europe. 

Preparation Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Serves: 4


3 ripe bananas
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup ground almond powder
2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
A pinch of salt
Milk as needed
1 tablespoon icing sugar
Corn oil for frying


  1. Mash the bananas with a fork and keep aside.  
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar well and then add the all purpose flour.  
  3. Mix this and then add the almond powder and salt and vanilla essence.  
  4. Fold in the bananas.  If the mixture is too thick, add a little milk.  
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan.  When hot, drop the batter gently in the oil with a spoon.  
  6. Fry on low flame till brown on all sides.  Drain on paper towels and serve warm or cold sprinkled with icing sugar.
