Note

  1. Make the batter thick which will help batter coat well on to the plantain/raw banana slices.
  2. If the batter gets little watery just add some besan to give it right consistency.
  3. Prepare batter first then slice the raw banana so that they don’t turn brown.
  4. Make sure the hot is in right temperature not too high and not too low.
