Though i love to eat pazham pori/kerala banana fritters but the deep fried oily pazhyam pori puts me off and I can’t eat to my heart’s content. I have to be satisfied with a small one😔…

Payampori is a delicious and popular south Indian snack prepared in kerala where a special type of kerala banana is sliced and dipped in a sweet maida batter and deep fried in coconut oil.

An idea crossed my mind why not prepare in a appepan/ kuzhi paniyaram vessel😇 as it wont need this much oil …but how it will taste was the question 🤔🤔…
Prepared a batter added the sweet nendran/ettakka or kerala bananas and cooked in appe pan with very little oil….yummmm😛…this time I didnt stop at one😉😉

In this recipe instead of deep frying I am using a vessel to prepare this dish and give a healthy twist by adding less oil. Maida can also be replaced by wheat flour too.


  • Maida 6 tbsp
  • Rice flour 2 tsp
  • Back sesame seeds 1 tsp
  • Salt 1/2 tsp
  • Brown or white sugar 2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
  • Water 9 tbsp
  • Ripe Nendren banana 2
  • Coconut oil 3-4 tbsp



in a large bowl add maida, salt, sugar, turmeric powder, rice flour, sesame seeds and water. Mix everything together nicely. The consistency of batter should not be too thin or too thick.

Peel and mash the bananas. Divide and make small balls.

Heat a appepan. Add 1/2 tsp coconut oil in each slot. Add a tsp batter, then add the mashed banana , then add the batter to the brim. Repeat this in each slot.

Once it is cooked on low to medium heat and turns golden in colour underneath, flip and cook. Reoeat and Cook in batches.

Serve hot as evening snack with tea.
