Banana Fritters with Honey Custard Sauce

              Banana fritters are my personal favourite. We use to have them when we were little [in Coimbatore] in the form of "ripe banana bajjis" which are a speciality of kerala. "Naenthiram" variety of bananas are used to make these traditional bajjis.

Ripe bananas:2
Maida: 4 tbsp.
Cornflour: 2 tsp.
Coconut milk powder: 1 tsp.
Cinnamon powder: 1/2 tsp.
Bicarbonate of soda: 1/4 tsp.
Salt: 2 pinch.
Dessicated coconut: 5-6 tbsp.
Oil: for frying.
Water: 1 cup.

For the sauce:
Custard: 6 tbsp.
Honey: 1 tbsp.
Vanilla essence: few drops.

1. Heat oil in a shallow pan.
2.In a bowl combine everything from maida to salt. Add water little by little to make a smooth batter.
3.Spread the dessicated coconut in a plate. Cut the bananas into 1/2 inch pieces.
4.Dip in the batter and roll in the dessicated coconut.
5.Fry on medium heat until golden brown on all sides. Drain in paper towels.

          Serve with honey custard sauce.

For the sauce:
1. Mix the custard, honey and vanilla essence. Serve with the banana fritters.

               You can substitute all purpose flour for maida. I used coconut milk powder for extra richness but can be omitted.
                I used custard powder to make the custard as I have not made one from scratch. Please feel free to make some from scratch or use ready store bought ones. Check for sweetness in the sauce before serving, mild sweetness is better to bring out the flavour of the bananas.
