These sweet fried dumplings or muffins are so easy to make and and are a good accompaniment at tea time. Traditionally an Indian Muslim dish, this is the modern day recipe made with rice flour  and coconut milk powder. Much like the Taste of Malaysian ” Goreng Pisang”, but with mashed bananas incorporated into the batter.

Heat  a small  amount of oil, enough to fry a few small balls of batter at a time.

When quite hot, add a small spoon of batter at a time and fry on low undisturbed for 30 seconds. Turn to fry to a dark brown color evenly.

Notes: 
Good Quality Jaggery can be grated but is your jaggery has some residue in it, it would be better to melt in minimal water and then strain to remove any impurities.
Traditionally, Pulivaral batter is dropped into the oil in an elongated banana shape, but i find these small dumplings are easier and more attractive and also fry easier.
