Plantain - 2 large or 3 medium
Non bleached all purpose flour or whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Rice flour or fine semolina - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Sugar to taste
Turmeric powder (optional) - a pinch
Oil to deep fry

Select ripe plantain. The skin must be black. Only then it tastes good.

Mix all the ingredients except oil and plantain in a mixing bowl. Add water to make batter of dosa or pancake consistency.

Peel the plantains and half them.

Now slice each piece to 4 to 6 pieces.

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed deep pan. When oil is hot enough to fry, dip plantain slits in the batter and fry until golden. When one side is golden turn and fry until the other side too is golden.

Serve hot with tea or coffee. It hoes best with black tea or black coffee.
