Pazham Pori / Ethakka appam

Prep Time

Ready In




Pazham pori is an all time favorite snack of malayalees. It is also called “Ethakka appam”. It is an easy to prepare snack which does not require any great cooking experience. Any pazham pori lover can make it quickly. People usually use ‘all purpose flour’ (മൈദ) for making this dish. If you are more health conscious, use ‘atta flour’ instead of all purpose flour for making the pazham pori / ethakka appam.


  • Ripe plantain (ഏത്തപ്പഴം) – 3 Nos
  • All purpose flour (മൈദ) – 1 Cup
  • Rice flour (അരിപ്പൊടി) – 1 Table spoon
  • Sugar (പഞ്ചസാര) – 1 Table spoon
  • Turmeric powder (മഞ്ഞള്‍പൊടി) – 1 Pinch (optional)
  • Water – ¾ Cup
  • Salt (ഉപ്പ്) – to taste
  • Oil (എണ്ണ) – to deep fry


  1. Peel the plantains and slit it lengthwise.
  2. In a bowl, take all purpose flour, rice flour, sugar, turmeric powder and salt. Blend it nicely by adding ¾ cup of water.
  3. Dip the plantain slices in the prepared batter and evenly coat them.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep bottom pan. When it is hot, deep fry the batter coated plantain slices by turning both sides till golden brown.
  5. Serve the pazham pori hot with a cup of tea after draining the excess oil using a paper towel.


1) Instead of rice flour, you can use Semolina (Rava/റവ) as an alternative. It is mainly used to keep the pazham pori more crispy.
2) You can also use ‘atta flour’ instead of all purpose flour.

According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me the passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.
