Pazham Boli

Pazham Boli

Pazham boli/ethapazham boli is a mildly sweet and delicious snack. It is a quick fix snack that you can serve with tea. I felt like it tastes somewhat like unniappam. This recipe is inspired from Das Shreedharans cookbook which I read some time ago,even though I don't remember the exact recipe. Pazham boli is delicious with great aroma of plantains, ghee and cardamom powder.

Plantains- medium-2
Cherupazham/small banana-1
Maida-2 tbs
Rice flour- 2 tsp
Baking powder- a pinch
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Sugar- 3 tbs
(adjust according to taste)
Black sesame seeds- 1 tbs
Grated coconut- 1 tbs
Dry ginger powder- a pinch
Clove powder- a pinch
Cardamom powder- a pinch
Ghee- 1 tbs
Oil- 1 tsp

In a bowl add chopped plantain and small banana/cherupazham. Gently mash it with your fingers. Into this add maida, sugar, grated coconut, roasted sesame seeds,baking powder, turmeric powder, ginger powder, clove powder and cardamom powder. Mix all this till well combined and let it rest for 10 minutes. 
In a plate spread rice flour. Take the mixture and make into small balls. Rolls on rice flour and flatten into small round disc with your palm. Heat ghee and oil in a frying pan and fry these patties in medium heat. When one side is gets browned up,flip over and turn to the other side. Serve warm with tea.
