Kele Mulik / Banana Fritters

Kele Mulik / Banana Fritters -  A delicious deep fried snack in Konkan cuisine, made of well ripe bananas, rice flour, sooji, coconut paste and cardamom powder !!

Makes: 12 – 16


4 well ripe / 130 g  small size bananas

4 tablespoon rice flour

2 tablespoon sooji (rawa)

4 tablespoon grated coconut, make a smooth paste with 1 tablespoon water

2 tablespoon melted and sieved jaggery (or to taste or sugar)

2 pinches cardamom powder

200 ml oil (to fry mulik)


In a small bowl, mash well  ripe bananas. Then mix it with rice flour, sooji, jaggery, coconut paste and cardamom powder. Mix it with a thick tablespoon. Batter should be thicker than idli batter / bajji batter. Do not add water. Cover and keep aside for 15 minutes. 

Heat oil in a kadai / frying pan. Reduce heat to medium  and wait for 1 minute. Do not fry on high heat. It will brown immediately.  Drop tablespoons / teaspoons ( use tablespoons / teaspoons which shape like ice cream scoop to get evenly round shape. 16 muliks if using teaspoon and 12 muliks if using tablespoon) ) of the mulik batter (6 - 8 mulik at a time ) and fry till puff /  golden color  on both the sides.

Drain and place on kitchen towel / paper towel to absorb excess oil. Please use 3 – 4 paper towel to absorb extra oil. Serve as an evening snack or with breakfast.
