Undan Pori -Kerala Thattukada Special

Undan Pori -Kerala Tea time snack

Its a popular snack among Kerala tea shops. I was searching for the right recipe. Had seen one in Lakshmi Nair's magic oven cook book, but she called it as Banana cake.Recently i saw them on Suja's blog,  the recipe looked good. It came out perfect but i think Palayam kodan will make much difference. Check out the original recipe Here.Thanks Suja for sharing this authentic recipe.

  • 1 1/3 cup wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup rice flour
  • baking soda , pinch
  • 3/4 cup jaggery
  • 3 small bananas, mashed (use Palayamkodan variety if available)
  • 1/3 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 tbs ghee\ clarified butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut chunks
  • salt, as needed
  • oil ,to fry

 Melt jaggery by boiling with little bit of water to a thick syrup and allow to cool. Heat ghee in a pan and roast coconut pieces till golden brown. Mix the mashed bananas with jaggery syrup. In another bowl mix all the dry ingredients and add banana mixture and fried coconuts to make a smooth dough. Make round balls out of this dough and deep fry till golden brown. Serve with hot tea...

  16. Hi Vrinda,

    Super undan Pori... Ente ernakulam special...oru chaya kittiyaal kushaal aayi!!!

    I once wrote about its prepration in my blog. The recipe was from the chef in the "tattu kada" from where I used to have my breakfast.

    We tried it few weeks ago at my Aunt's residence.

    My apologies for not visiting your blog for a long time. It is a hard time for me to start pushing apologies to my blogging friends.

    I am doing it since the morning. Have been pasting this message to all the blogs and the friends I missed during these months.

    Spider man says, "with great power comes great responsibility". I was busy with some business activities to which I am engaged and thus could not find time for my blogging.

    I have made my day manageable to equip my blogging freedom besides my regular work.

    I am sure to try new recipes by you from today.

    wishing you a great day ahead!


  17. Holy moly, these look perfect! You are definitely making me hungry for some!
