Pazham Porichathu (Banana Fritters)

PazhamPori 1
Ripe Banana/Plantains (Nenthra pazham)   --   2
All purpose flour/Wheat flour                             --    1 cup (I like wheat flour)
Sugar                                                                              --   2 - 3 tbsp, adjust according to your taste
Preparation of pazham pori:
Mix together the flour,sugar and water and make sure there are no lumps. Make a thick batter, in the consistency of idly batter/condensed milk.
You can adjust the sugar according to your taste. Also check the sweetness of the banana.
Slice the bananas vertically into thin pieces. I cut the banana into 3 horizontal pieces as well to fit it in my frying pan.
