Plantain fritters

Plantain fritters are a favorite at home so I make it once almost every week. Plantains are very rich in iron and vitamin A and these fritters are not deep fried which makes it a healthy side dish or snack. You can find these in almost any of the grocery chains, pick once which are a bright green and firm if they are yellow the fritters will end up mushy and tasting slightly sweet.


1. 1 Green plantain, washed, peeled and cut in 1/4th inch thick slices(refer to the pic for a rough idea)
2. 1 tsp Chili powder
3. Hing 2 pinches
4. 1 tsp Salt
5. 1/4 cup Bread crumbs or Sooji
6. Oil 2 tsp
7. Water 2 tbs


1. Mix all the above ingredients except bread crumbs, oil and water
2. Set aside for 15 minutes
3. Heat a griddle or pan on medium heat, spread a tsp of oil to avoid sticking on the pan
4. Roll each of the plantain pieces in bread crumbs and place them in the hot griddle
5. Sprinkle 2 tbs of water on the pan and put on the lid
6. After about 5 mins flip the plantain pieces to grill the other side(make sure the first side you are grilling has turned golden brown before flipping)
7. Grill the other side until golden brown, turn off the heat.

Serve with Tomato Ketchup, Mustard or any kind of chutney you like. Enjoy :)
