These raw banana fritters are usually an accompaniment to a meal. Called Phodi in my mother tongue Konkani, these are served with Dal rice and are prepared during a feast or on other ocassions where community feeding takes place.
2 raw bananas
1 tbsp Chilly powder
1 tsp Hing/Asafoetida
Wheat flour to dust the Phodi
Oil for frying
De-skin the raw banana. Wash it thoroughly and slice it 2 cms thick. Sprinkle the chilly powder, salt and Hing, mix well and refrigerate for half an hour. Heat oil in a pan. Dust the slices with wheat flour and fry them on a medium flame till a golden brown and crisp. Remove and drain on a kitchen towel. Serve hot.
