PAZHAM NIRACHATHU (Plantains with sweet filling)- VEG & NON-VEG

Pazham Nirachathu

This snack is very famous and is mostly made in malabar areas of kerala. This is equally favourite of kids and adults :)... try it and you will know it :)

Ingredients :
Plantais (Ettakka) - 2 nos medium

For Non veg version:
Egg - 1 no
Coconut - 3 tbsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Cardamom Powder - a pinch
Cashew nuts and raisins - few
Ghee - 1 tbsp

For Veg version:
Coconut - 3-4 tbsp
Sugar- 2 tbsp
Cashew nuts and raisins - few
Cardamom Powder - a pinch
Ghee - 1 tbsp

To Cover the filling:
Maida - 3 tbsp
Rice Flour - 3 tbsp
Sugar- 1 tbsp (or as per your taste)
A pinch of salt
Water to make batter
a pinch of cardamom powder (opt)

Mix all the ingredients from maida to cardamom powder and keep aside.

The bananas should not be very ripe as it will be difficult to hold the filling. A little above medium ripe will do. Deep slit the bananas leaving the edges intact.

Meanwhile we will prepare the filling. For the non-veg verison, beat the egg with sugar nicely.In a pan add ghee and add in the beaten egg and keep stirring with spoon to form scrambled egg. Saute till egg gets cooked and then add in the coconut, cardamom powder, nuts and raisns. Fry for about 2-3 mins till all get fried as shown in pic.

For the veg version, mix with hand coconut and sugar nicely. In a pan add ghee and then add in all the ingredients and saute for about 2-3 mins and leave the mix to cool down.

Once the filling is ready, fill the mix into the slit of the bananas. Dont over stuff. Then on top the slit, apply the maida mix over it so the filling dont come out. Then in a pan, heat oil/ghee, fry the bananas on all four sides. Serve warm :)...

Notes :
You can use normal oil for ghee if you are very health conscious.
While slitting bananas, make sure it opens only one side of the bananas.Not the other end.
Sugar quantity variation can be changed according to individuals needs.
