Banana Sesame Balls
An easy snack for a lazy evening..
I first tried banana balls from a Malay stall in the Food court near our office..
The first thought that flashed my mind was ..O man this taste similar to our dearest..Nostalgic..Unniappam..
Banana balls are rather easy to make as compared to the traditional Unniappams..
I usually make it when I have over ripe bananas in the kitchen..
This is a perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea
2 Ripe Bananas
1 Cup Flour. I used Whole wheat Puff pastry flour.
1 /2 tspn 5 Spice powder. You can substitute with Cinnamon powder as well
1 /2 tspn Baking Soda
2 tspn Sugar
1 1/2 tbspn Sesame seeds
Oil for deep frying
Mix together Flour, Spice powder, Sugar, Baking Soda in a bowl.
Mash the bananas in a blender
Add the mashed banana to the flour mixture and mix well.
Add water if necessary and make a thick batter similar to Pancake batter
Add in the sesame seeds and mix well.
Using a spoon, gently scoop small spoonful of batter to the oil .
Make note to reduce the flame to Low or medium low so that the inside of Banana balls are cooked well.
Fry till both sides have turned brown.
Enjoy with a cup of hot tea
