Koat Pitha - Banana Fritters with Rice Flour

 For this month's SSShhhh secretly cooking , I was paired with Priya Iyer of the photowali. The theme was cooking from Indian states and this month's state was Arunachal Pradesh . She gave me Brown sugar and banana. I decided to make this sweet tea time snack. It was a common snack in  North East of India especially in Arunachal Pradesh , Mizoram , Assam , Nagaland and  Tirupura. It was a common recipe in all these regions.

It is easy to prepare with three main ingredients and is similar to the Kachayam recipe of our kongu region. 





Requirements : 

3 banana
1/2 cup rice flour 
1/2 cup brown sugar / Jaggery
Water
Oil for frying 
  
Method: 

In a bowl , mash the banana and add the rice flour and brown sugar. Mix well ,sprinkle water if needed to make a thick batter.

Heat oil in a kadai , pour a spoonful of batter to the hot oil and cook in a medium flame.

Take off the pitha from oil when it becomes golden brown.

Serve koat Pithas as tea time snack along with Masala chai/ Spiced tea.
