  • 2 tbsp refined flour (maida) or whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp semolina (suji)
  • 2 tbsp grated coconut
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cardamon powder

  • 3 tbsp milk
  • A pinch of salt

How to make Banana Fritters or Bengali kolar bora

  1. Mash the bananas separately in a bowl using a fork. Add the milk into it and mix it evenly.
