Pazham nirachathu (Stuffed plantain)

I am reposting my old post pazham nirachathu. One of my favorite Malabar snack.  I think my old picture was not that much appealing so reposting with new picture and with slight modification.

2 plantains (ripe)
¾ cup grated coconut
3 tbsp sugar
Some sliced cashews
Pinch of cardamom powder
1 tbsp all purpose flour
Oil for fry

In a pan add coconut, cashews, raisins and sugar. Mix well and saute till sugar melt completely. Add 2 tsp water and finally add cardamom powder. Turn off flame and let it cool. Cut banana into two pieces. Make three long slit without cutting ends. Widen the cut and fill coconut mixture into it. Make a paste with all purpose flour, pinch of sugar and salt. Apply this paste on coconut filled part. Fry this stuffed bananas in hot oil till become golden brown color. Drain and serve hot.
