Valakkai Bajji – Raw Banana Fritters:
Valakkai Bajji is a famous evening snack that goes very well for tea-time enjoyment. Made with raw bananas and a mixture of readily available flours at home with salt and chilli powder, it can be prepared instantly. This is a quick to make item for treating sudden guests at home too.
There are lot of ready mix brands available in the stores that you can use for making this. But we usually prefer doing it ourself at home with minimal ingredients just to make this a healthy snack. After making bajjis out of raw banana slices, the remaining flour can be utilized to make onion pakodas.
Usually raw banana is believed to give gastritis troubles for few. So adding asafoetida to the bajji mix would be useful.
