Kola Pitha


Banana 3 medium sized

Rice flour (you may need more or less) 3/4 th cup – 1 cup

Egg 1

Sugar (according to your taste) 1/4 th cup- 1/3 rd cup

Cinnamon powder  1/2 tsp.

A pinch of nutmeg powder (optional)

Baking powder  1 tsp.

Baking soda  1/2 tsp.

Oil for deep frying

(Many use rice flour and flour together. For very soft fritters, use flour and rice flour half and half. But the original recipe only calls for rice flour.)


Blend the bananas with the egg. Pour them in a bowl.

Add the rice flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg powder and mix it well. The batter should be very thick.

In the meantime heat oil on medium -low flame and when ready, drop a little batter with your hand. Try to drop them close to the oil and try to them give them a round shape. Fry until dark brown and crispy.

Enjoy it hot or cold.
