Banana Fritters
Evening snack

Banana Fritters

From my childhood memories, one of the best thing coming up in my mind is having hot banana fritters and tea while coming back home from school in the evening. My mom used to prepare this snack almost every weeks. There are different ways to prepare this snack. The difference is in the preparation of batter. These are the perfect ways to use the ripe bananas before they go bad. Serve this lovely crispy treat to your family.
