Ripe Plantain Tikkis (Ethapazham / Nenthrampazham / Pikkenne Keleche Tikkis)

Ripe Plantain Tikkis (Ethapazham / Nenthrampazham / Pikkenne Keleche Tikkis)

A shallow fried tasty sweet dish !!!

Makes: 7


3 medium size (525 g) ripe plantain

2 teaspoon ghee

1 teaspoon raisins


Wash well bananas and steam in a steamer or pressure cooker (without weight) for 15 minutes on a medium heat (or until soft). Microwave method - arrange in a microwave safe bowl with 3 tablespoons of water and microwave high for 4 minutes 30 seconds on 750 W. Keep aside to cool for 15 minutes. Drain out water and carefully remove thick black nerve from the centre.

Mash well and make a soft dough. If the steamed banana texture is very soft and difficulty in making a soft dough, add 2 teaspoon corn flour and mix well. Finally add raisins and mix well.

Divide this ripe plantain dough into 7 parts and make flat and round shape (like aloo tikki) – 3 cm diameter).

Heat 1 teaspoon ghee in a non stick frying pan. Arrange tikkis carefully and shallow fry on a medium heat until golden color on both the sides. Sprinkle remaining ghee when turning the other side. Serve hot.
